I had a blast doing FatMumSlim's Photo a Day Challenge for June. I'd been wanting to do a photo challenge for a long time, and this one was perfect. As much as I'd hoped to get a new camera this spring, it just didn't happen, and I'm trying to content myself with my current camera until I can afford a new one and not feel guilty about it.
Doing this challenge really made me open up my eyes to my surroundings and notice things I might not have noticed before, and also really look at things. I like that feeling of being mindful, and it's also been a great creative outlet - not only in the photography itself, but also in the 'doctoring' of the pictures. I'm carrying on with the challenge in July, and you can see June and July's photos in the Photo a Day tab at the top of the blog.
Here are my June pictures:
If you participate in Photo a Day be sure to let me know so I can check out your pics. I've already inspired two friends to join the challenge, and I'd love to see more people I know doing it! I update my pics here on the blog, and I post them daily on Twitter and Facebook, too.
