Photo A Day - Day 1

Photo A Day

Ok so this has been an idea that has been around for a while, a photographer friend of my husband was doing it on his facebook page. Search hashtag #photoaday on twitter and you come up with lots, you can also google, so many blogs, flickrstreams etc to enjoy, its also known as project 365.

So what made me decide to take the plunge - well I have thought in the past that its an interesting idea, but an interesting idea is as far as its got until now, why?

Well I was inspired after reading the Day 2 blog entry from Cajame Creations

I giggled into my tea at her efforts to photograph pets - I know the frustration (4 cats, 2 rabbits and 1 dog - you would have thought that one of them would sit still long enough for a photo).

Well she mentioned RULES, these rules are from Saturday's Child blog

These are the rules so far:
Days 1 - 7

Day 1 - free choice to begin with
Day 2 - a pet or if you dont have one a stuffed toy
Day 3 - anything edible
Day 4 - your favourite mug/cup
Day 5 - free choice but this time list 3 reasons why you have chosen it.
Day 6 - free choice but must be in landscape mode not portrait
Day 7 - the cd you currently have in your cd player

Days 8 - 14 

Free choice but with a mainly green theme ( ie the colour green not the concept)

Now once we have achieved this 2 weeks worth of posting and hopefully loads of people are joining in lets be bolder and make it to the 1 month total in one go.

Days 15 - 28

Your lunch every day  (you never know it may make you look at what you are eating in a whole new light.)

I like the idea of rules - it means you will sometimes have to think outside of your comfort zone, but I am not sure that I will be able to stick to these rigidly - they might need some tweeking to work for me.

So Day One and this is it:

I liked this one because of the blue sky it made smile.

Of course I can never go out and just take one photo so these are the runners up (rule bending!).....

I also had a go at playing around with Photoshop - but I need way more practise (and maybe to *borrow* my husbands graphics tablet, and a lesson):

Hope that you liked day one - can I manage all 365 days in the year? Well I will give it a try :)
