Saturday 2 August was a day of two halves for me; I had been looking after my grandchildren for a week and their parents were due back at lunchtime so the morning was very much family time and the afternoon and evening were spent catching up with some work.
I participated in this project last month for the first time and as we were celebrating our youngest’s 21st birthday it was an ideal opportunity to record the day. Open to everyone, the idea is you take a photo roughly every hour and share it on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag.
I’m finding the challenge useful on two counts:-
Having to stop what you are doing and take a picture can be a bit disruptive if you are not used to it and at one point I thought I might just have 11 pics but I did manage to capture one more before midnight. It’s a nice diary record of a day, just as it happens, and it’s also interesting to see what other folks are up to; some are participating in countries other than the UK so you get a glimpse into their lives as well.
I used my mobile phone to take the photos and shared them on Instagram, where you can see all twelve. I’m picking my best half dozen for you to enjoy now and I hope it encourages you to have go.
