Books

Twelve.

Twelve months in a year.
And twelve words to work with.
When I set out our journey at the beginning of 2017, I had a vague idea where I wanted to go to but did not know where these words would take us.
A journey for sure.
A creative exploration.
A search for … something.
And here we are in the eleventh month of the year.
Yet, no time to look back.
No rest for the wicked.
A new challenge to explore.
A new word to share.
So close to twelve, so far to go.
And the word is … Book(s).

Books

Books, a collection of words. A body of wisdom. A different kind of photography.
A tale of wisdom.
An inspiration.
A guide.
A teacher.
A story.
A picture tells more than a thousand words, they say.
Yet the average book contains a good 100.000 words, so … that must be at least a handful of images.

The Word.

And that is the challenge I have set out for us this month.

Select a book that made a serious impact on you.
Tell us why.
And create an image to celebrate that moment.

I already know my book.
And I know the why (I guess).
I just have not thought about an image yet (well, now I started to).

If all else fails, you at least get four interesting books to give or put on your reading list to enjoy.

But I do think there will be more.

Books, a written or printed work consisting of pages glued or sewn together along one side and bound in covers, filled with a good hundred thousand words trying to tell a picture …

This reminds me after one year, I still haven’t taken the most important photo I have to take here in Finland, which is inspired by my favorite book. Maybe it’s also about time I read that book again…

Now you got me curious. Is that a new post in the making?

Maybe, if I manage to get the picture I’ve had in mind for more than a year :-)

That is some serious photography visualization going on.

I would like to take part in this great challenge and I have a pic in my Instagram profile about my favorite book. Can I use it or should I make a new one?

Hi Elena, awesome. And yes you can use an existing one if it works. Do you have a sneak preview for us?

Yes, I can send it to you, if you tell me where to do that
