The third exercise is based on a small trip to a location of your choice. Over the last couple of months, my family and I traveled a few times and each time I was looking for an opportunity to complete this exercise. However, time and schedules usually take precedence over creativity. On the last trip, we went camping in Vedauwoo National Forest. While we were camping, I was constantly looking for opportunities to be creative and my daughter and I even tried to decorate an old rotten stump with wildflowers. It was most definitely fun and I spent some quality time with my daughter, but it wasn’t quite what I was looking for.
On the last day we were there, we were walking around the camp site and I noticed a few rusty cans buried in bushes and dirt. There were old cans, like the ones with the skinny peel away opening that isn’t made anymore. After some digging, I found a can/bottle graveyard that was rusty and had been there for years. My husband helped me dig them out of the bushes and dirt and we found some interesting shaped bottles and soda cans. We took the best ones and lined them up on an old tree that was dry rotted and had a great old gray color. The timing was perfect since we finished around five o’clock pm, so the lighting was great.
I was able to snap a few pics. The most challenging part of this exercise was finding that creative outlet while out and about. It was definitely fun and we had a great time sifting through the ruble. Enjoy the pics!
