Creativity Exercise | Motion Blur

I was excited to play with this month’s challenge, and then life happened… First Em was sick and then I was, so this was the only “motion blur” image I ended up with. But that’s OK, because this needed to be documented anyhow—Emily got a new bike this month from a dear friend!!!! She has been needing one (her last was from third grade and barely came up to her knees; hence she’s been borrowing mine), and now she has her very own bike that she got to pick out. The plan is for this to get her all the way through college (I can’t believe I’m having to think such thoughts already…)! With P’s expert bike knowledge, she narrowed it down to two: this happy green one, and a second that was adorably vintage-looking and mint green. The photographer in me wanted her to choose the other one, but this was a smarter purchase (it’s much more versatile), so I’m proud of her for ultimately going with this one. And then of course she had to outfit it with pink things, just to make it hers—pink and green. And I love it too, (almost) as much as the other one!

Please join me in seeing what creative things the other women in my group did this month! First up is the amazing work of Beira Brown!
