Spring greetings!!

I am starting with the September #FMSPhotoADayChallenge today… this time I hope to take a pic for every prompt!

Its not too late to start with me!

Here are today’s “together” pics…

01 September "together"

in future I’ll only do one blog post a week you’ll find them under my pages… I’ll post daily to my facebook page and double up on twitter

Here’s how to play if you missed yesterday’s post…

• Check out the September photo a day list below the challenge

•  Each day look at the daily prompt and take a photo according to whatever the prompt is. For example for day 1 the prompt is ‘together’, it could be you and your kids, of two or four legs 😉 items stacked together… It’s a great opportunity to get creative. Be inspired by a little creativity and see what you come up with.

•  Once you’ve taken the photo it’s time to share it. There are loads of places you can share it. See below for more details.

Daily Prompts

What do the prompts mean?

There are no rules when playing along with photo a day, you can be creative as you like! Interpret the prompt as you please. For those that need a little help, some more suggested details about each prompt are below:

1. Together:You could share a photo of you and someone, or two things that below together. Define this prompt as you please.

2. My name begins with: Choose something that begins with the same letter as your name, or find the letter your name starts with and shoot it.

3. Lines: Find lines in your travels today and shoot them. It could be stripes or power lines, or other lines.

4. Alone: Choose something that’s a little bit solo. Or perhaps it’s what you like to do when you’re alone?

5. Here forever: You should find something today that isn’t going anywhere. What’s here for always?

6. Getting ready: Is it a plane about to take off? You getting ready for the day?

7. White: Take a photo of something white.

8. Made by me: Did you make dinner/lunch/breakfast? A craft? Art? Handywork? Anything?

9. On the wall: It could be artwork, a spider, a poster… anything!

10. Sweet: What a great excuse to indulge in a treat. Or take photos of kittens or cute kids.

11. What you did today: What did you do today? We want to see it.

12. Shadow: You know what a shadow is. Shoot it.

13. Unexpected: This one might be a bit tricky… but what’s unexpected? A little bit of graffiti? A letter in the mail? A sun shower on the perfect day?

14. Liquid: It could be the ocean, a drink, rain or something else.

15. Season: What season is it where you are right now? How can you show that in a photo?

16. Frame: You can take this as taking a photo of a frame {art, spectacles or otherwise} or you framing a photo in the photographic sense.

17. In front of me: What’s ahead of you? A person? A huge task? A great life?

18. Vintage: Find something with a little bit of history in it today. Or just visit your Nana and take a photo.

19. What is this?: This can be a cracker prompt. Why not take a photo of something and make it a mystery. Perhaps shoot something really close up so it’s not identifiable and then the community can guess what it is?

20. In the morning: Self-explanatory really. If you sleep in, you’re in trouble!

21. Rule of thirds: This is our photography lesson prompt. Keep an eye on my blog for a post teaching you how to achieve this.

22. Made me smile: What made you smile today? Shoot it and share it.

23. From my childhood: Find something from your childhood and share it.

24. Space: You could explore negative space, take a trip to the moon {kidding!} or shoot another interpretation of space.

25. H is for…: What starts with H that you see in your travels today?

26. Curve: Look for curves today, you might see them in buildings, on people… keep an eye out.

27. WTF?: What the f*&k? This prompt was suggested a few times. Interpret as you please. It could be something that makes you mad, makes you laugh or just makes you question life and ask, “What on earth?”

28. 10 o’clock: What are you doing at 10am or 10pm. Share it in a photo.

29. Gold: Shoot something gold today.

30. Found: What can you stumble across today? A stray coin? A feather floating by. Keep an eye out for something found.
