August Break – August 2nd
This photo shows my new helmet and pads. Over on my other blog, Derby Dreams, I am documenting my journey to get into shape and prepare for try-outs with a roller derby league.
Today, I bought a helmet and pads so that I can start working out on skates, as well as the time that I’m putting in at the gym. I wanted to find a helmet that is for skating. I didn’t want anything pink or girly, and I didn’t want a bike helmet. My kids immediately made plans to cover it with stickers; but, for now, I want basic black. I want to look like a badass, even if I skate like a jackass.
I’m participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break project:
The plan is: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day .Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular (wordy) blogging.
There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.
