100 days of Summer 2017

This Summer I have once again taken part in THE THINKS annual Photo-a-day Project 100 Days of Summer.  This involves responding to a word or sentence  given each day, by taking an image. I find this way of working an exciting challenge as I do not go out of my normal routine or everyday experiences to capture a photo that relates, resulting often in quite personal images . It adds another dimension to my everyday documentation, mixing my own view of life with words, phrases and poetry imposed on me by someone else, extending my ‘everyday’ into that of others.
