THE CHALLENGE:

Take 10 photos of things you’re looking at every day.

Take them from a different perspective, so you see them differently.

When you’re done:

Post as a gallery on your WordPress site with an appropriate headline and/or to Instagram.

If you’re feeling brave, share the post link to our section Facebook group with the hashtag #ContentChallenge

    • Looking through glass
    • Reflections
    • … whatever you have on hand to change the way you see the pace around you …
