100 Days of Finding Light.

Back on July 12, I finished a daily series of "finding light" photos for #the100dayproject. Yep, for 100 days, I found something Light in my world, took a photo of it and shared it on Instagram. Along the way I learned that 100 days, counted one day at a time, seems to last forever. and sharing something every single day on Instagram can be a real challenge! (I'm still enjoying a bit of a break from Instagram đŸ˜Œ.)

But I am so glad I participated. Images tell a powerful story. I have a deeper understanding of what Light means to me and how prevalent it is, if I just pay attention.

As the project drew to a close, I started thinking about what I'd do with all the photos. I originally thought about a video (like Carole and Kat - theirs are wonderful!), but I wanted to see all the photos together. Ah...the internet is a wonderful resource! Photoshop can create a "contact sheet" (aka a mosaic) and Costco can print a 14x14 canvas. In about an hour, I had the photos compiled and the canvas ordered

and a week later, I had the canvas.

I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. and having it so visible (in my study, behind my desk) is exactly the reminder I need. Light is everywhere. sometimes I just need to look for it.

  1. What a wonderful idea! I am working on putting my travel pictures into a photo book, leaving room to journal reflections right on the pages because I know that if I wait too long, it won't get done. Thanks for sharing the canvas idea.

  4. What a grand way to show "the light"!! Your photos show the light in all its forms. Thank you for inspiring me to take a daily photo (I'm getting a little better). Collecting your light on one big canvas was a fabulous idea.

  7. what a wonderful way to see your 100 day theme. I bet focusing on light made your days joyful and bright especially since you were transitioning to having the grands live a little farther away. You are wonderful!
