Part of the reason I have been distracted in the last month is that I was participating in the SoFoBoMo (Solo Photo Book Month for short.) Like the writing challenge that you may have heard of, this gives a photographer one month to take photos and create a PDF book. Check out their website for more details. If you love photos this is a fun challenge. You don't need a fancy camera, I've seen some great iPhone photo books, or fancy anything. Just the time, the desire and BAM! you're there.
I share mine with you here. While you are on the site, check out some of the other books too. There are some super talented people out there. You can download the books as well if there is one that tickles your fancy.
