Well, I'm only a few days late with this and it somehow seems appropriate to be kicking off my maternity leave by posting about Relaxation. Do you remember how I issued that challenge at the beginning of May? Did anyone else feel up to joining in?
I actually found this a lot harder than I first thought. Five photos around one theme in one month. Surely not too challenging... You'd think. I umm'd and ahh'd and procratinated and thought and pondered and did very little picture taking. But here it is - my response to Relaxation. Quite early in the month I decided to focus on how people in Germany tend to gravitate to outside spaces when the weather is sunny, which led to reading in parks, which led to reading the news. I somehow found this an interesting juxtaposition - we read the news to stay informed and yet apparently it's a wonderful way to relax as well!
So... not my five best photos of all time. But five photos on the theme with ample wiggle room to improve.
If you also played around with the theme relaxation this month, leave a comment and a link to your blog/flickr/instagram site. I'm really excited and curious to see what other people came up with. If you want to join me for the month of June I've decided that I'm going to be exploring "Hands".
