PhotoadayJuly Instagram Challenge
Fri 29th, Jun, 2012
Hey Beach Cottage Dudettes, well it’s PhotoadayJuly time, yes sirree another month rolled around, so here we are again talking getting those photos snapped!
Join me this month for Instagram PhotoadayJuly Challenge…it’s fun, creative and makes you see your little life through new interesting eyes!
Now June’s Challenge on Instagram was a good one, I didn’t quite make them all and some of them I wasn’t feeling it with, but that’s ok, indeed that in itself is interesting..
…if you are doing this, as I am, for a little bit of creativity in the humdrum of daily life as you go about doing the laundry, running kiddos all over the beaches, and of course taking pictures of your shoes, the challenges make you think just a bit outside of the box, but not so far out that it’s way over the top and all very artsy fartsy and un-attainable…
So here’s one Photoaday instagram challenge that had me stalling, big time – it was what’s in your bag and people my bag was looking scary…so I didn’t do it, put it off and off and off, until I took the plunge and purged its little Beach Cottage heart out…
Here’s the edited version minus the stinky soccer sock, arm bandage from the broken arm we had in the house, various half-eaten going mouldy things, an empty bottle of Dettol (will never live that one down with Mr Beach Cottage) and other un-mentionable on this here blog things..
gardening, Beach Cottage style…I enjoyed that day so much, getting my hands in the earth, and smelling the roses that are actually hibiscus and camellia…minor technicality due to coastal air (I can cope with that)
…of course, has to be a shoe shot, right now it’s all about the boots, baby – boot wearing here is much shorter lived than it used to be in my life back in the Old Country, so now I take great pleasure in Instagramming the life out of them wherever possible.
So here’s the list, red hot from Chantelle Ellem over at FatMumSlim, this girl is rocking the creativity with this and I love it.
It’s simple, doable and fun. My kinda challenge.
So, if you haven’t joined in yet but have been thinking about it, hop in, it’s a fun photo challenge open to all and great for a bit of, I dunno, just zapping and loving your life, know what I mean? And I am so all about that. Egotistical? Own it baby.
There are no rules with PhotoadayJuly, you don’t have to be in with the cool crowd, you don’t have to like anything or comment or have any pressure, just shoot and go!
Once you have taken it, share it with the hashtag #photoadayjuly and then go see what others are doing on the Instagram challenge…
That’s it from me for now and PhotoadayJuly… I will leave you with one of my favourite photos lately from Instagram…snapped on a walk just recently…it’s kinda different for me, the sea, air, clouds and even the sun are not all bubbly and happy but were kinda moody and antsy as I walked along by the sea…and sometimes I think I love it even more when it’s like that.
See you next time….
I’d love to see you over on Instagram & PhotoadayJuly – I am just ‘abeachcottage’ come and say hello
