As September begins and Summer ends I am coming to the close of Susannah Conway's 2014 August Break Photo Challenge. It was the first Instagram challenge I've participated in since joining the community three years ago and feel like it ignited in me a new approach to photography. I found myself truly inspired each day from the prompts, which helped me take the time to shoot thoughtfully. The positive feedback from the group and seeing everyone's interpretations of our prompts was also incredibly rewarding. Below is my month of photos - minus the first 5 days because I started on Day 6! Enjoy!
