A week from today National Photography Month begins. Here’s a blurb from the official website The American Photography Association (sadly, not updated since 2014) –
NPM was officially recognized by Congress in 1987 as a month-long event. It was first introduced by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 as the ‘American Photography Celebration’ which ran from May 7-14. The American Photography Association (the “Association”) is a primary sponsor of National Photography Month and our goal is to maintain President Reagan’s vision to celebrate photography and photographers.
Two years ago, I did a different photo theme for each Monday in May. Last year, I belatedly came up with the idea of doing a quote challenge, and it was so much fun, I’m doing it again this year. However, unlike last year, I’m not limiting myself to pictures taken during May – I have such a huge library of shots that haven’t seen the light of day, I figured I might as well put them to use.
So here’s my challenge, and I’ll need your help, dear readers – please leave me one of your favorite quotes in the comment section below, and I’ll pair it with a picture I’ve taken. If you’re a blogger, be sure to leave a link as well, so I can give you a shout out. If you can’t think of anything this week, no worries – I’ll post results and ask for more quotes each Monday in May.
To get the ball rolling, here’s one from last year’s Week One –
