Day 1 – Today (you saw this one on New Year’s Day)
Readers coming to grips with depression, the serious illness of a child, being run ragged by little ones, or just wanting to connect with fellow creative types, all attest to the encouragement and satisfaction they’ve found in the simple act of taking a photo a day to illustrate a prompt from the list Chantelle posts at the beginning of each month.
Day 2 – Something new
Shutterbugs have the choice of posting their daily photos on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, their blog, or all of the above!
Day 3 – Heart
I took up the challenge for a couple of months last year, but when some of my readers told me they missed my regular quilt-related posts I dropped out.
Day 4 – The view from here
But with the start of a new year I’m back joining in the fun and I’ve decided that instead of sharing my photos daily I’ll post a weekly digest here on my blog (with prompts).
Day 5 – Movement
If you can’t wait a whole week, and you’re on Instagram, you’ll find hundreds of challenge photos every day under the hashtag #fmsphotoaday, and mine in particular under my name @darlingdi.
Day 6 – Mine
There’s a Facebook page that’s worth joining too https://www.facebook.com/groups/FMSphotoaday/, if only to see those wonderful daily photos from every corner of the world!
Day 7 – Street
I find it great fun being on the lookout for that one special shot every day - as one reader put it, ‘noticing the artistry in the everyday things of life’- and I really hope you enjoy my first seven photos for 2013.
