Karma’s June Photo Challenge

All the way back on June 1st Karma (Karma’s When I Feel Like It Blog: Hearts -n- Flowers) introduced her readers to the iHeartFaces June Photo Challenge in which she encouraged us to play along. I have mentioned a few times in this blog that I started, stopped, restarted and tried but June just didn’t cooperate. I had a few pictures and tagged them accordingly for each day.

Karma wrote me this morning and gave me a gentle kick in the butt so that I would revisit the images I captured in June to see how they ‘fit’ into the categories. My hang-up was that I was thinking of images captured on the particular day for each topic, not all of June in general. So, after much review and a little creative interpretation I present my efforts for Karma’s June Photo Hunt…

If you have made it this far then congratulations! I probably should have put the images into a gallery but I like the ability to add captions under each image. To Karma… thank you. This was a great idea and I wish I had put aside a little more time toward it but in the end creative interpretation really saved me. Next time I’ll be less literal… 🙂

  1. I am so glad Karma kicked your butt. These are wonderful, Mike! That’s the great thing about Karma’s challenges. No real rules or literal interpretations. But always fun. 😀

    • Thanks Robin! Once I realized it was just about the images I ‘found’ quite a few to fit the daily themes. And it was fun reviewing the month’s catalog seeing if I could ‘stretch’ an interpretation… 😉
