Creativity Bootcamp Day 10 - Full Bodied


I grabbed my camera as I left for work this morning with no idea what I'd come up with for today's prompt - but with a goal in line with today's assignment to simply keep my senses open for the art and beauty all around me.  I found myself enjoying my food a little more than usual (and photographing it in the hope that the food that gave me a full body might work for the prompt.)  When a lovely bouquet of flowers was delivered I relished the scent and snapped a few photos of the lovely stargazers and roses.


It wasn't until I put my leftovers in the fridge that I found my subject for today's photos.  There have been a couple of bottles of wine in the fridge since we moved into the office.  I pulled them out and set up a quick photo shoot.  I'm not a drinker, so wine would never have come mind - but keeping my eyes open through the day meant I was ready when the opportunity presented itself.

I had two revelations today as I worked through the process - the first was that with just over a week of bootcamp under my belt I'm so much more confident in my abilities.  When I first started I didn't tell anyone I was participating - it was something I was just doing for myself.  But over the days I've found myself sharing the experience - and more importantly, my work with friends and family.  I've been warmed by their encouragement and have even convinced them to participate in various activities.  The second revelation was how far I've come in considering myself an artist.  On day one I couldn't make that statement, and while I'm not completely there yet today, I see it coming.

Today's song is an oldie - but totally appropriate, UB40's "Red, Red Wine"
