Victim to Charm

Every day in November I posted both a written piece for NaBloPoMo and a photo for the WordPress Photography 101 course. Doing just one or the other would’ve been WAY less stressful, but why not go all out?

Here are my takeaways from Photo101:

While I would’ve loved to use Photography 101 as an excuse to go out and shoot, it just wasn’t an option for me.
  • That said, I really enjoyed using Photo 101 as an opportunity to go through old photos.
