February – Photo-a-day Challenge

I am still having fun with the photo of the day challenge with Chantelle of  Fat Mum Slim as well as with my FaceBook group!

I like to follow along – it makes you think about the photos you take.  I think it also helps improve your photography.  I am also getting to know my iPhone better and some of the cool ‘apps’ available.  I continue to learn so much about my phone and photography.  So, without further delay, here are my photos for the month of February…

1. FIRST…the FatMumSlim list:

1. Fork: Everyone has a fork lying around at home, or work, right? Get creative and see how you can shoot it with a little style.
Fork {a series of forks; confused? ...start on the outside & work your way in} #fmsphotoaday
2. Pattern: Look around and see where you can find pattern in your day. Is it in something you’re wearing? In a rug you come across in your travels? On some wallpaper, a book or something else?
Feb 2 - pattern #fmsphotoaday #fence
3. Something beginning with ‘E’: Take a photo of something beginning with the letter E.
Feb - 3 something beginning with 'e' #eggs #fmsphotoaday
4. Hope: Oh, a hard one. How would you photograph hope? Is it something you wish for? Someone who gives you hope? A quote that brings hope to your life?

7. Your name: This is a fun way to get to know each other. Perhaps you could take a photo of a name badge you use for work {or even an old one}, your name on an award you received, or perhaps you can scribble down your name on paper and show us that way?
