This week at I Heart Faces is a week off from photo challenges but there is still a "thing" going on. The theme this week is "Random Acts of Kindness". I think the idea behind it is to share pictures of a time when you used your photography as a random act of kindness for someone. One person shared a photo from a series she did of a family who had no home. Another person shared photos she takes of dogs available for adoption at her local shelters. This week's challenge also goes hand in hand with a charity called "Inspiration Through Art (Littlest Heroe's Project)". I couldn't figure out how grab their button but you can check them out here. The Inspiration Through Art/Littles Heroes Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young people to give back, and make a difference through the beauty of art.
I am not a professional so I struggled a bit with this week's challenge last night. I thought about it for a long time and determined I had never used my photography to "help" someone or for someone's benefit. I mainly just take pictures of my kids! Or the cat! :)
It wasn't until I was doing laundry later that night... that I got an idea. Or, the idea found me. I discovered something in the basket. Discovered... or perhaps, rescued? Could it be, a "random act of kindness" had found me. Kindness of some sort of all? I decided to grab the camera and have some fun! I knew my girls would enjoy seeing pictures of Little Clown's adventure in the laundry. So, a random act of kindness was born. The kindness of a story for my daughters.
(Please note this post isn't meant to trivialize the real, true, and good random acts of kindness posted by other readers and bloggers. I only mean to have some fun with this week's challenge ~ and keep participating! ~ since I don't have a real, true, and good random act of photographing kindness to share!)
