New Year! New Set of Shutterbug Challenges

Well as you can see it has been awhile since Corinna and I posted anything to this site. It's not because we didn't want to, though. Life just got a bit busy for us the last month of the year so we decided to take a little break from the blog and spent the time focusing on our families and all the necessary holiday stuff.

Now that the holidays are over and a new year is upon us, Corinna and I are ready to start posting challenges to Sunday Shutterbugs again. This year, however, we are changing things up. First of all, we are not going with an A-Z theme anymore. The A-Z themes were fun, but to be honest there were a few letters where it was just dang hard to come up with something. Also, some of the themes were very limiting in terms of what we can do, and we know if they were limiting us, they must also be limiting to you guys as well.

The other thing we are changing up is the length of time for each theme. You would think that one week would be a long enough time period to take ONE theme picture, and on some occasions it was just enough time to complete the theme. However because of our jobs, our families, the weather, the shorter winter days there were many weeks we found ourselves scrambling until the very end and ending up with only a couple of decent shots. Then there were weeks where we wish the theme could have continued longer because the theme was so broad or so inspiring, that it was tough to narrow it down to just one photo. In general we just needed more time.

Therefore, from here on out Shutterbugs is doing MONTH LONG themes! Corinna and I will pick a nice general theme to do every month. The themes can be anything, it's just a matter of whatever floats our boat for the month, but the themes will be very broad with plenty of possibilities. We will still be posting photos every WEEK, and we will still be posting a NEW photo every SUNDAY. So this means that we each will be posting a total of 4 photos relating to the theme.

Hopefully this change will give us (and you) a chance to really play with the theme and explore the possibilities, and make it so it's easier for everyone to participate. :)
