I've been setting myself a few goals for the coming year and although I already have several running challenges in the pipeline, I decided I needed a new creative challenge also. One thing I'm determined to do is get back into photography. I decided I would set myself a photography challenge. (There are several photography challenges online that you can follow, but I thought it would be more fun to do my own.) So I've set myself a different theme for each of the 52 weeks of the year. I don't have to do them in any particular order, just select whatever appeals to me on a particular week and tick it off the list. Some of the weekly themes I have included are reflection, solitude, song-inspired, sparkle, juxtaposition and vibrancy. How I choose to interpret the categories will depend on how I'm feeling at the time, but it should make for some interesting pictures. I plan to save all my weekly photos on a Pinterest board so that I can look back on everything at the end of the year and hopefully be proud of at least some of them. What challenges are you going to set for yourself in the New Year?

This looks like a good and interesting challenge. I set no more goals or challenges for the New Year. I am glad with what I can do every day.

This sounds a great idea. Vince is on several photography websites and enjoys the challenges that get put on on them.

I dont set up such milestones or challenges, as this world is very unpredictable...we are not what's gonna happen next moment, whats the use of planning for a long term

True, but if we spent all the time worrying about what could go wrong, we'd never get anything done. We'd never even bother making plans for the weekend, because theoretically we could get run over by a bus before it comes.

I know we are only days from the New Year but I don't have any plans or challenges, a photography challenge would be good.

That sounds like a great and very creative thing to do. I hope to write more outside of myLot (poetry, stories) and spend more time on learning guitar.

Oh that's a great idea -- the photo challenge and I hope you share your snaps with us. The one you used this time is amazing, it could be a puzzle ... is that a typical village?
