Bigger Picture Captures

Often just like writing, inspiration for a photo comes immediate and you simply must capture the moment. Other times picture taking is less inspired.

In the spirit of creativity that is being nourished here on this site and in your hearts, we’re bringing back Bigger Picture Captures.

Each Wednesday a thought, a word, or a moment will be shared and you will have the opportunity to capture the creativity with your lens and share it.

No need to worry about blogging it (unless you want to of course) or linking it up. All you have to do is Tweet it, facebook it, or Instagram it.

We know that a lot of you are participating in the P365 or P52 challenges. This is  a little more creative inspiration to get your camera out and take a picture of something different.

Use #BPCaptures anywhere you are collecting your pictures, and get ready to CREATE!

January is almost over (whew!) but most of the colors that we see on a daily basis are pretty much the same. You have brown barren trees, grey over cast days threatening snow showers, and if you are lucky (lucky?) snow surrounding you everywhere.

Blah. Right?

So today’s prompt is SPARKLE.

Sparkle in January? Whaaat? Well…

It could be the happy gleam in your dear child’s eye or the glimpse of childhood you see in your grandmother’s smile. Your capture could literally be sparkles or it could be snow glittering in the sunlight. There are so many ways to interpret the word sparkle this time of year!

There is so much sparkle around you if you really look! So get busy. Find your sparkle and then use #BPCaptures anywhere you are collecting your pictures, and get ready to CREATE!

Let’s have some fun!
