April's photos, the summary
This mosaic shows all the photos taken for my LiveJournal project, Stop for a moment and look. The idea was to find something interesting each day and post it to my blog.

There was more repetition than I intended and I hope in June there won't be so many photos taken in the back garden. As those of you who have been following along already know, mostly it ended up being about the very very slow progress of spring this year. :)

April 2013 mosaic

1. Tiny daffodils, 2. Early morning light, 3. Variegated ivy, 4. Porth Oer, 5. Daffodils, 6. Ewe & lamb, 7. Determined dandelion, 8. Time for a cuppa, 9. Traditional Welsh gate fastener, 10. The road to Corwen, 11. Old shops, 12. New hawrthorn leaves, 13. Morning sunlight on the hawthorn, 14. Celandines, 15. Bible Garden, Bangor, 16. White Shetland pony, 17. Walking the dogs, 18. Daisy and dandelion, 19. Brith, 20. Sunny day, 21. Cloudy day, 22. Spring rain on primroses, 23. Celandines in the garden, 24. Cherry blossom, 25. Bay horse, 26. Twin lambs with mum, 27. Dew on grass, 28. May blossom buds, 29. Church and flowering tree, 30. View from Brith's house

Back in 2010 I did a 365 project. I didn't want to commit to taking a photo every single day for a year, so this is a sort of compromise. I thought doing just the months with 30 days might be enough of a challenge without becoming a burden. Besides, a 30 day month creates a neat 6 x 5 mosaic. :)

There's an interesting symmetry to this group - I'm seeing patterns... Reds, yellows & greens... the animals... trees, the road sign & the church...

Imagine it cut up, duplicated & used to play that children's game where you have to guess where the other tile is... It would work because you'd get confused. Is that the primroses or the celandines? Daffodils or dandelion? Which horse? Or was is that one Brith?

Love it.

It's just as well the mug was green otherwise it would have stood out like a sore thumb! Though it's possible that I chose that particular mug unconsciously, knowing that it would fit the month's colour scheme.

Beautiful when put like that.

Thanks. There's a web site that does the mosaic automatically if you give it the link to a Flickr album, so it's easier to do than you might think. But I always find the results interesting. When I did a photo every day for a year, you could see how the predominant colour changed through the year when you compared month by month.

I'm seeing spring greens and yellows against the neutral greys and blues.
I was just thinking earlier today about how much I love seeing those two colours around now.

That's a lovely assortment ... and a very cool idea.

Thanks. It was readthisandweep who gave me the idea with her "moment of enchantment" posts last year. I decided that I couldn't guarantee to provide something enchanting, but I could try to pause for a moment each day to look for something interesting.
