At the end of last year I mentioned that I wasn’t planning on doing Project 365 again. That is, take a photo every day for a year. Well, an interesting thing happened. Photos were taken on the first and second of the month (I can’t not take pictures of Arthur in the bath and on a walk) but then I didn’t take anything for a few days after that. Interestingly, I found myself missing taking a photo a day and once I did pick up the camera up again I found myself thinking “well that’s my shot for the day” once I snapped. Old habits die hard, it seems!
So I’ve decided to commit to a photo a day again because it seems I can’t leave it. It’s going to be no pressure and if there are days when I don’t pick up the camera then no worries. This year I am following Fat Mum Slim’s photo a day prompts, where there is one word or short phrase a day to use as a starting point (like me, night, or something blue) which has been working out really well for me, especially on a day when I’m at work. Although if I decide to not use a prompt, again, no worries, it’s just nice to have a photo for that day. I’m posting most of the photos onto Instagram as I’m loving the FMS community there, so come over and say hello!
Hopefully every month I’ll do a round-up of some of my favourite photos from this project. Here’s a few photos from the last month along with the Fat Mum Slim prompt (if applicable, I didn’t start using the prompt until the 19th):
31/01 FMS prompt: Me. So I have been taken part on Ali Edwards’ One Little Word course to help me with my word for this year, courage (I need all the help I can get!). I don’t know how much of this journalling I’ll reveal on here as it gets *really* personal sometimes, but there might be the odd glimpse like this from time to time. I am loving the course so far though!
Bring on February!
