2013 Photo A Day Challenges – Day 1

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.

Bear & Stogie

Bear & Stogie

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.

    I had such a hard time with reading challenges last year (not a problem with reading the books, but a problem with recording my progress) I decided to drastically limit the number of challenges I enter. However, I mist be addicted to challenges because to fill the void, I have entered a couple of photo challenges. . .
