Photo-A-Day Day 1

So I picked up this idea from another blog (a very cute & beautiful blog Cajame Creations ) the rules are at the bottom... but first my first ever photo - Day 1 - category is free choice to begin with

 My photo is a macro shot of a fir cone, complete with cobwebs :)

And here are the rules... because there has to be rules :)

blog challenge rules    (taken from Saturday's Child blog)

Okay i thought I'd spice things up a little and have a few rules to this post a-photo-a-day challenge.  Its not meant to be serious so if you don't want to follow them, that's fine.

If you do want to play along then these are what I've come up with so far.  Ill cut them into small chunks so we feel we are achieving something.

All photos must be taken on the day itself, if your camera has a date facility then you could switch it on.  You don't have to write anything to go with the image but some of the rules do ask for that.
 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 - draw a small picture and take a photo of it (don't worry if you cant draw, nor can i)

Days 8 - 14

Day 8 - Must have a 'triangle' in it
Day 9 - anything 'yellow'
Day 10 - anything fluffy but not living
Day 11 - A cloud formation
Day 12 - Anything beginning with 'B'
Day 13 - 2 ingredients you will use in any meal today
Day 14 - The theme of 'time' interpret it any way you wish

Woo Hoo, if you've made it this far, well done. Jump up and down and feel good about yourself and... oh okay enough of the cheesey phrases!


@litlemouselilly has come up with some great rules, i think you’ll agree with me that they are going to stretch us and be fun at the same time.

Ok some rule ideas that i came up with:

15.    Treasured childhood possession
16.    Macro shot (close up if no macro setting)
17.   Texture
18.   Looking up
19.   Looking down
20.   Try a different perspective (e.g get down on the floor)
21.   Weather
22.   Yourself (either an image of you however you want to do it or something that sums you up!)
23-29.  Pick a colour for a week


Brill new rules from Jan @cajamecreations. Cant wait to get started on these.

  2. Thanks for your comment Gill, I'm looking forward to your challenge, I so love getting my camera out but can never think of anything interesting to take a photo of... other than my dog of course, and now she does a runner as soon as she sees the camera!

    Today's photo is of course perfect for me.. just got to get the little madam to sit still long enough to get something shot
