One of my goals for 2013 is to do more with my photos and to pay more attention to this blog. With that in mind, I decided to participate in some of the photo a day challenges that I’ve seen floating around the web.
The first challenge I found is hosted by Fat Mum Slim
The photo assignment for day one of this challenge is simply “Today.” Here is my photo.
This is how my first day of 2013 began and my husband’s last day of 2012 ended – me snapping a quick photo with my D7000 of Tony (aka Stogie) and our friend George (aka Bear) attempting their first cigar of 2013. I say attempting because, well even men are sometimes smart enough to know when it’s too cold to sit outside and smoke a cigar.
Another blogger that I follow is doing this photo a day challenge. I really liked some of the things they have on their list, so I thought I would give it a shot, too.
They are using instagram, which I’ve signed up for, but have never used. I’ll just post mine here.
Today’s assignment is a self portrait.
I took this photo with my iPad, uploaded it to fotoflexer and gave it a poster like effect. I thought it helped to hide the old lady chin that I seem to have developed. Anyone who knows me, knows that a self portrait of me reading a book, is some cultures say “SPOT ON.”
Signing up for two different photo a day challenges may be a case of biting off more than I can chew, but I won’t know until I give it a good try.
