I am a football widow for the evening so tonight seems as good a time as any to
eat all of the new tub of Ben & Jerry’s by myself update you on my new year’s resolution to complete Project 365.
While I’m still ticking along with the challenge it’s now morphed into a hybrid of 2 photo projects. When browsing my beloved Instagram last month I kept seeing the tag #janphotoaday; upon further investigation I found out this is a photo a day project started by Fat Mum Slim, who set different daily ‘prompts’ for inspiration and invited people to post their resulting photos on their blogs/websites/preferred social network.
Being the obsessive compulsive creature that I am, I couldn’t join in mid-month so I was pleased to see that the challenge continued in February. Admittedly I did forget to take some photos at the beginning but I tried to catch up on them later!
I thought this was such a fun project to take part in and I also found it interesting to see everyone else’s photos: some of the topics might have seemed a bit mundane at first glance but actually being set a ‘boring’ subject makes you think more creatively about how to make an image interesting (plus I really enjoyed a nosy peek into other people’s day-to-day lives).
If you’re interested in taking part in #marchphotoaday here are the daily prompts:

I posted a few simple (free!) photography tips last month so take a peek if you feel you need a few easy-peasy pointers.
Before I sign off, wishing you all a Happy Leap Year (is that a thing?)! How have you spent your extra day? If any of you have proposed, or indeed been proposed to, do let me know!
