The August Break, 2014 is the brain child of one of my favorite bloggers, writers and teachers, Susannah Conway. As she states, “the idea is to simply take a photograph every day for the whole month of August.” The point is to be mindful. Since I intend to learn photography if it kills me, I am joining the challenge both as a mindfulness challenge and an opportunity to practice the art of photography. The rules to the “break” are loose, so no one is wedded to posting their photos at all or every day. As a result, I’m in.
