April illustrated

I made a point to take and label (with the date) and post a photo to Instagram everyday last month. There are few things I like more than a photo mosaic! Presenting, April 2015:

  1. I forgot about Macro May – thanks for the reminder! I am so far behind on processing photos that it may be a while before I can pull together my April mosaic.

  2. monthly mosaics are awesome! it’s a great way to recap and remember… love the change of season and all the celebrations from your April!

  3. I need to be more methodical and make sure my photos are labeled (and daily). Love revisiting your month of people, projects, and places.

  4. COOL! I love seeing your month all “charted” out like that. (I may need to try that myself.) (And I always forget about Macro May until it’s started. Never too late????)
