MM – Quote Challenge Week One

Welcome to my Quote Challenge Week One results! If you missed my post last Monday, this is what I decided to do for National Photography Month

So, this is my challenge for myself, and I need your help. Please leave me one of your favorite quotes, and I’ll pair it with a picture I’ve taken. The catch (for me) is that it will have to be something I’ve snapped during this month (May 2016).

Seven of my wonderful readers gave me quotes, and these are the pairings I’ve come up with so far. I initially thought I’d work my way down the list in order, but I’m finding it easier to create them as inspiration hits. There’s still time to add your own favorite in the comment section – I’m posting four today, and three next week, but if I get enough additional quotes, I’ll extend this another week or two.

Oh, and thank you to everyone who has provided amazing words to pair with my pictures – I’m really enjoying this!

UPDATE May 24th, 2016 – Completely forgot to mention yesterday that I’m also putting these up on my Pinterest board. Please feel free to share them!

  1. I continue to just love the heck out of these quotes and images. The Phantom Tollbooth/Teensy Spider on Dandelion Fluff one is my favorite. I should take the Rumi quote to heart…I hit snooze too often and feel that I miss quiet morning moments too frequently.

    1. Thanks, Jess! One advantage I’ve found to getting up with hubby at WayTooEarly O’Clock is the opportunity to take advantage of those moments. Not as often as I’d like though – just because my eyes are open doesn’t mean I’m actually awake. 😀

  2. What a fun idea. I have done this for some of my favourite quotes on my No Kidding in NZ blog. It’s always fun to see other people’s favourite quotes though – and your photos, of course.

  3. I love the image with mine! I’m sure the dandelion can’t imagine it will one day blow apart and become dozens of new golden flowers.

    1. I’m so glad, Mel. Did you also notice the tiny spider using the dandelion fluff to support its web? Guess he didn’t Google safe building supplies.

    1. You definitely did, Parul, and your wonderful share of, “The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me ~ Ayn Rand” will be up for next week’s post. Still trying to figure out a worthy picture. 😀
