Ten on Ten {vol.1}

The ten on ten photo project is another way I hope to document our lives more here on the blog.  I don't remember where I first read about or saw this photo project for the first time; likely, somewhere on social media.  I did a bit of Googling and discovered that the creator of this project is photographer Rebekah Gough.  The premise is to find the beauty in the every day by taking ten photos for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of every month.

I really caught on to this idea primarily as a way to take more photos.  Over the last couple years, I've really gotten out of the practice of picking up my camera.  I do carry my phone with me almost everywhere, and take photos with it, but the quality isn't awesome so it isn't preferred.  (Truth is, my knowledge and handling of the "big camera" isn't so great either - would still love to take some classes to learn!)  And this way, I'm capturing more of our everyday and not always just the special occasion stuff.

It's likely I won't hold too tightly to the hard and fast photo-every-hour parameter.  I did have the alarm on my phone set to ring every hour to remind me, but I didn't stress out if there was nothing particularly inspiring to photograph at that exact moment.  Ten photos spread out throughout the day is the goal.  

So on the 10th of every month, you can expect to see a post like this.  Likely no words, just photos, to show that this is us, here and now.
