Just living is not enough… One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.
– Hans Christian Andersen
The first week of the Leap into Spring! Photo Challenge and I absolutely cannot think of a better prompt to begin with. Spring is bringing us brighter days and the change of the clocks to Daylight Savings Time means that we get to enjoy the beautiful sunshine for even longer each day.
In the city, as the evening draws closer and the sun gets lower in the sky, the soft light peeks around the edges of tall buildings and reflects off of the glass windows. It pours through blossom-laden tree branches, and dances over patches of bright green grass. Mikey likes to play outside, making shapes on the sidewalk with his own tall shadow.
Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.
– J.M. Barrie
I’m teaming up with Alicia of Project Alicia and Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud to bring you the Leap Into Spring! Photo Challenge – a 6-week photography challenge aimed at capturing the beauty of spring.
Just a few details:
Not experiencing spring in your part of the world? No problem. All are invited regardless of geographic location.
Two prompts to choose from each week! Share your favorite images inspired by one of our weekly prompts. Or both. It’s totally up to you.
The linky will remain open from 9am Friday – 9am Thursday CST. Leap Into Spring! blog post or Flickr photo, not your blog’s home page or Flickr photostream. Feel free to share your photos in our Leap Into Spring! Flickr Group as well.
We’ll be showcasing some of your lovely photos by pinning our favorite submissions to our Leap Into Spring! Pinterest Board each week.
We love Instagram just as much as you do! We’ll be on the lookout for your lovely spring photos, so be sure to use the #leapintospring hashtag.
Last, but not least, don’t forget to grab our lovely button!
Next week’s prompt will be Easter/Eggs. For a complete list of upcoming prompts, head on over to the Leap Into Spring! Photo Challenge page.
