I can't really believe I have just signed up to another challenge, not enough that I'm doing a 365 day project (Day 82), but now I am playing the April fool and have joined an A to Z challenge for the month of April. Oh, I hear you say, there are only 26 letters in the alphabet and there are 30 days in April; well apparently we get Sundays off for good behaviour! But back to the challenge. I am already completing a monochrome project over a year and have to admit (as previous blogs and cheats will support) I crave a bit of colour and this, hopefully will allow me to satisfy that need with a daily blog of a colour photo. Now that doesn't mean I won't repeat the photo in B & W for my other project, but it will depend on what subjects I come up with.
So what's my opening gambit with the letter A? I came up with all the usual ideas, apple, architecture, aphids, arm (april fool), before I realised it may be a good idea to introduce me, my business and my blog which happens to start with a letter A!
I run a little business called Arran in Focus. Arran is my passion, a little island off the west coast of Scotland, often referred to as Scotland in Miniature. It is a truly wonderful place, with stunning scenery and wildlife. I loved it so much that a few years ago I decided to chase my dream and move here (giving up a career and city lifestyle). Unfortunately, my previous life didn't provide sufficient resources to be able to become a lady of leisure, so I started up a small photography business doing workshops and training (along with the odd wedding and commercial work).
