Week in the Life - Tuesday (moments)


So there’s a peek into my Week in the Life for Monday and Tuesday.

So far I’ve taken a fair few photos. I imagine I will take less as the week goes on. Some of the details I capture seem so mundane at the time but my previous attempts at this project have highlighted how much our daily routines can change over time and I love being able to capture right now in this moment.

Are you playing along with Week in the Life? If so, do let me know. I’ll be back in a couple of days with another update on this project.
