Photography Challenge: Day One

Disclaimer: This is not an original idea. I’m not sure if anybody can claim to be the sole-proprietor of it either.
So, what happened was this.
I was in the middle of my examinations; this was actually the second exam but since I’m in the final year and there’s like only three theoretical subjects this time around, I was actually past the half way mark, when I decided that I wanted to look at TED. You know TED Talks. Now, it’s not that I hadn’t seen any in the past; I had, quite a few of them infact. But exams do something to our machinery, my machinery. And so, at around eleven in the night I began watching these talks. It was during one of these, that I stumbled upon the Do something new for the next 30 days talk. Now, I had already been introduced to the concept courtesy a blog post/page by Mr. Emberton; but hadn’t really had the balls to actually begin with it. It seems I’ve grown a pair in time.
There are a few things that I need to do: quit rice, do yoga, write those thousand words per day and then some. But I was always scared. I mean come on! No rice for a month! Hell, I can’t even do that for a week! I still am scared. Looks undoable. And so when I stumbled upon this talk I sort of smiled a bit and thought: now that the reading challenge is already on; how about a 30-day challenge to complement it. Also, rewards and retributions suck. SO, this is something that I’m going to do, because well I want to, not because if I fail, I might have to taste dog food!
There’s another aspect to it. The satisfaction of actually completing one might be, I don’t know worth the, umm, well the work. I want to taste it. Smell it. Feel it. The satisfaction. And, so in order to get into a habit, I guess, in order to sort of have an idea about what to expect, I’ll start with a simple one I guess. The 30-day Photography Challenge. And to make sure, I won’t be clicking sefies and posting them here, there’d be just a minor condition attached to it all: there will be no photos of my home, or the gym, or the furniture, or the pet (even though I don’t have any!) Well you do get the zest.
Here’s the first photograph to kick open the challenge.
