Are you Being Silly, or are you staying safe?

Way back in January, the very first image I uploaded for 2009 came with a resolution for the year, and that was to Be Silly. And by that I meant, that I would try and stay out of my comfort zone and do things that I would perhaps walk away from for whatever reason. Life is waaay too short to stay in the comfort zone we build for ourselves, and it can be quite exhiliarating to do something out of the ordinary. (Both in real life, and photography/art life)

Well, here we are almost the end of July, and have I maintained the resolution of Being Silly? You bet I have. The latest instance can be seen below. Have you chanced upon abandoned objects and continued to walk away, when if you had put that motto of Being Silly into action and grabbed some props, a camera, your best friend and your sense of humour, then you would have discovered just how much fun it can be to sometimes leave that safety zone we all like to remain in, way too often.

I’ve tagged this image with the word besilly, and I’d like you to do likewise with images that you feel were out of your comfort zone when you shot them, created them, wrote them, painted them. Link them here, so we can all see that it’s ok not to take life too seriously all the time, and that it’s great to have a go at something you have no idea about.

Go on – I’ve shown you mine, now you show me yours! ;)
