There are lots of online challenges about taking one photo a day to record your year. Id be really interested if anyone has any links to good prompts or forums that are running the challenge as I think I will need some help getting through and will need some fresh ideas.
So the challenge is to take a photo everyday. The idea is that it is not always going to be a major event. Hopefully not always a cute photo of Matt or of a recent layout. But maybe something everyday. A record of life.
I know I definately want to take more photos of the area I live in. I have lived in the Wimbledon/Morden area for 40 years ( other than 4 years at univesity in Reading) and I want to record some of the places I take for granted.
I also want to photo our home. Its not a show home - its not from the pages of Homes and Gardens , but it is our home. I love it and we spend a lot of time here. I should record it.
Not all my photos will become layouts - but I might think of a way of presenting my photos - either in an album, or a photobook at the end of the year or maybe a monthly layout. Still playing with that idea in my head and reading other blogs for inspiration.
So its the 5th, Ive taken 5 photos - so here they are....
|About 12.15am on New Years Eve and our friends brought along a Chinese lantern to celebrate. Didnt have my best camera with me - but quite like this shot!|
|Ok - so youve seen this before. But love this shot!|
|2 photos for the 2nd - cant decide which I like best|
|4 Jan and of course back to work so I forgot to take a photo. So in the evening I took a photo of my little work area at home complete with my new SAD light which Simon bought me for Christmas,|
|5 Jan and Matthew playing with his friends Eva's very pink toys. He loved putting the dolly in and out of the buggy - very cute. And how adorable is that t-shirt.|
