seems like the may photo challenge was a big hit! (have you ever seen so many beautiful blue eyes?!?) i love the range of photos and thoughts that were shared each week. i am thrilled to see so many new names and faces appearing each week!! i will be the first to attest that my current state of sleep deprivation is singularly caused by excessive blog surfing...
it was such a relief (for me) to have a month's worth of challenges already out there. i found i had more time to think about my own responses. i also found i had more time to work on my general photo composition skills. and while my photos didn't always feature my *face,* there was always a part of my *self* in there (hands, toes...) are you remembering to put a part of your *self* in your spt?
a new month is upon us, and i am ready with four new challenges. i hope you enjoy them!

in the U.S., we are in the charmed time of early summer, between Memorial Day and Independence Day. school is winding down. the pools are open. the grills are fired up. we linger longer in beds made up with crisp cottons. and freshly bathed children smile up at us with sun-kissed cheeks before dreaming of strawberries and picnics and fireflies. it is a magical time of year.
we have the chance to honor our history during this time of year. to remember how our nation came to be. to remember those who have lived and died to protect the things we hold most dear. no matter what country you call home, there is opportunity here to celebrate every homeland. every nation.
i hope you will recognize these challenges - they are all borrowed from patriotic songs. and there is so much room for creativity within these lyrics.
