If you like the idea of a daily photo prompt, here’s the list I use via blogger FatMumSlim. You can learn more about posting and tagging here, which means you’ll be part of a fun, creative global community of folks who share their unique take on a word (and their world). So fun. And fascinating.
It’s just the most fun, the Photo A Day Challenge from Australian blogger fatmumslim.com. Each day you take a photo using that day’s prompt as your inspiration, then post your shot on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or your blog. Following the hashtag #fmsphotoaday, you can see the images posted by other people using the same prompt. It’s fun to see a word or phrase interpreted in so many different ways. It’s fun to see shots from around the globe. And it’s especially fun to spend the day looking at your own world in a new, more curious way.
The 15th of January was particularly interesting. Rather than looking for something yellow (#14)
or water (#11)
or starts with “t” (#8)
or circle (#13 )
I spent this day considering the ordinary moments that make up a day, a year, a life.
This was my conclusion. When you look at the ordinary moments in your life, there is quiet undertone of grace that runs throughout.
Tomorrow starts the February Photo a Day Challenge, as launched by Australian blogger fatmumslim. I hope you will join in on the fun. It’s a great way to think differently, notice everything, and (if you want) make new friends with other people who are getting as big a kick out of the whole thing as you are.
All you have to do is take a photo every day, then share it. Complete instructions are here.
Come on along!
