I finally decided to approach this challenge from more than a subjective view. Up until this point, I had two goals: (1) to take a picture daily, and (2) to try to be creative with the themes; treat the themes as artistically as possible. And, for the most part, I have succeeded with these two goals. Then, it hit me like a light bulb. What is the value of this project if I’m not trying to take the best possible pictures during the challenge? If the picture isn’t good, who cares about the challenge? If the picture isn’t good, who will believe I am a good photographer? So, as of the beginning of this challenge, I will integrate good, quality photos into the challenge–every time–no matter how challenging it will be to make time for this, no matter how busy I am. This is a year-long investment and I’m going to treat it as such.
The eighth theme for the 365-day photo challenge—food—very well may have been the easiest. I generally eat no less than twice a day, so a reminder for the challenge was always in my face… yes, the pun was intended. I’m a bit embarrassed at what you will see here. Sometimes I eat very conscientious… sometimes, not so much. Other times still, I didn’t eat what I photographed.
Here are the pictures I took during the yummy goodness eighth theme.
Things I learned:
- Planning is invaluable.
- I like to eat grilled chicken sandwiches… a lot!
- I MAY have learned what a Minced Meat Pie or a Rhubard Pie is. If you can identify the type of pie on day #115, please let me know.
Eight themes are now complete, and only 16 to go! Thanks for your time and thank you if you’re participating.

I started Ata-Girl Photography Co. in 2010 and I am one of the premier San Antonio wedding photographers who is available for local and destination weddings. In addition to wedding photography, I also specialize in high school seniors and family portraits in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. I am a professional photographer who enjoys documenting the important milestones and captivating moments in people’s lives. I firmly believe that the unique set of circumstances I have faced in life has prepared me to take a personal and genuine interest in my photography clients. When I’m not photographing a wedding, family or high school senior, I enjoy watching my daughter play softball, hiking, cycling and listening to Elvis!
