Photo A Day May

So, one of the many blogs I’ve stumbled across recently is written by a lady named Chantelle called Fat Mum Slim (She’s Australian, so the “mum” in question is a mother, not a flower).  I don’t even remember now how it is that I came across it—you know how the Internet can be, right?—but she likes photography, loves her daughter, and writes about a bunch of stuff, including writing.  What’s not to like?

Anyway, one of the things she is doing on her blog is sponsoring a photo a day challenge.  She provides the daily prompts; all her readers have to add is a picture or two.  Or, in the case of May, 31.  Since I’ve recently been re-enamored of my photography bug—I’m reading a book about my camera and everything—this seems like the perfect way to pass a little time. 

I’ve already browsed around Twitter and Pinterest to see some of the day one offerings, and I have to say that a bunch of them put me to shame.  But, of course, it isn’t a competition; it’s a way to encourage blurbs of creativity from as many people as are willing to play along, and I am certainly on that list.  If you want to take a look yourself, just do a search for #photoadayMay.  I think you’ll be glad you did.  And if you’re looking for a little nudge toward creativity yourself, find all the details here.

And, now, for my day one entry:  Peace.
