I have always watched with interest people starting and some finishing a photo a day challenge. I decided I’d do it once I got my new phone with web capabilities and I finally got it one week ago. It’s been eight days and I haven’t forgotten to take a photo per day yet.
Below are days 1-7. You can follow my progress on Flickr. So far all the photos I’ve taken have been with the iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. My only beef with the Hipstamatic app is that what you see isn’t what you get with the framing of the picture so it can be a bit hit and miss.
I’d just installed the app while JJ was writing a story. He’s right into writing at the moment. He even wrote something the other day and let me correct his spelling and re-wrote it. His spelling needs some work.
This was taken on our morning walk and it’s at our local oval usually used for sport, but you’re still allowed to let your dog off the lead here so long as organised sport isn’t being played and so long as you pick up its poo and keep it under control. My dog is deaf now so if she wanders off and I call her she can’t hear me. I have to get in front of her face and wave my arms to get her attention these days.
This was taken on my way to a seminar on North Terrace in Adelaide. I’ve taken a similar photo using my DSLR.
I obviously didn’t take this one. This is on our morning walk yet again.
We had our work christmas dinner the other night so I took a few using the Hipstamatic app (this is one) and some without. The iPhone 4 camera works pretty well – I like it.
This is The Surfer near his camper trailer that he sold the other day. We showed the people who ended up buying it how to put up the tent part. I’ve only done that twice now and really can’t remember that well what to do so I pretended I knew what I was doing while trying to make it look really easy. The people who bought it seemed really nice so I hope they enjoy it. The Surfer has bought a camper van to use instead of this which is why he sold it.
I ended up choosing this one for day 7 because JJ looks so so happy here. He’d been quite annoying this day after a really good day on Saturday… He was probably really happy because he was going to have his favourite fish and chips for dinner. We’d just been to pick up my sister from the airport.
And that’s my first week of daily photos. I’ll do an outtakes version I reckon because there’s some other good photos that I didn’t choose for the daily photo. I couldn’t say what my criteria are really, but it’s partly a document of my day-to-day life I guess.
Have you done a photo a day project or point to people you know of who have?
