Blogging from A to Z Challenge: 2018 Theme Reveal!

Welcome to the Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z 2018 Theme Reveal!

For those of you who aren’t aware of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, you can read more about it here:

I’ve been a participant in said challenge since 2014.  Every year I choose a theme, and every year I blog it on the fly.  Will this year be any different?  Probably not, but I can dream!

Before I reveal my 2017 theme, here are themes from challenges past:

  • 2014:  I blogged about our house, and the befores and afters of the renos we did and changes we made after buying it.
  • 2015: I blogged about interesting places in Victoria (all close to home).
  • 2016: I blogged about learning to use my DSLR
  • 2017: I blogged about my ‘hood in Welcome to James Bay!

And now, my Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2018 Theme!  Drum roll please…..

The A to Z of Wabi Sabi: an exploration of wabi-sabi photography (and accompanying commentary)

What is wabi sabi?  Well, in simple terms, it’s the Japanese art of imperfection.  Which is perfect for me!  You can read more about it at Wikipedia ( and about how it relates to photography at Discover Digital Photography (

My friend Susan in Regina, during out photography adventure back last September, introduced me to the term wabi sabi upon realizing that I loved taking pictures of broken and worn-out things.  I’m looking forward to exploring more of this, under the three types mentioned in Discover Digital Photography: “photography of the overlooked beauty, photography of worn and weathered beauty, and adding imperfections to staged images to make them seem more real.”  And using the letters of the alphabet to choose my subjects.  Of course, I will be writing my own reflections on my photos, so I see this year’s challenge as a chance to practice both my photography and my writing.

I guess I better start planning!!

And we start today with a tour of the incredible Hellebores from Helleborganza!  Don’t think this is a real thing?  Think again!  Check it out for yourself at 🙂

And now, to begin our tour (which will take a few weeks…I feel way ahead of the game for my FotD postings for a change!!):

For Kevin, I know it’s not Saturday, but it can still be Caturday!

A response in not as much avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing prompt

Kevin was sad yesterday that I missed Caturday, because I was off on Saltspring Island with friends Sue, Isla, Judy and Wendy at Helleborganza (stay tuned for a week of Hellebore flowers of the day!).  So, I said I would do Caturday on Sunday.  He wasn’t convinced that would work, but I am confident!  What do you think?
