The hashtag for August is #photoadayaug

9. Messy #photoadayaug

I own WAY to many shoes, hence.. it is always a mess! Doc Martins, my X-Country boots, a scarf, my beak-up boots…. heck even a paper towel roll. You try living in a two story box with no closets and see how organized you can be!


Right now I am challenged  to figure out how to show off my images daily. I will be uploading them to instagram but I also take images all the time and share so to make it more focused and instead of posting another post daily,  I will be adding an image to a gallery on my PHOTO A DAY AUGUST PAGE  (#aphotoadayaug) each day (hopefully I will not miss a day but heck I will give it a shot!) I also am participating with The Indie Exchange as a group and will be doing four of the days in the group. And tweeting this out as well as loading them over at my Facebook Profile and adding it to Fat Mum Slim’s FB Page!

If you’re new to photo a day, click here for instructions on how to play.  In a nutshell, just follow the list, use the daily prompt as inspiration and take a photo. Share that photo anywhere you like, (my) Pinterest, (my) Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Twitter etc. Take the time to thank her if you join, she has worked tirelessly to create these lists each month for all of us and it is amazing! This month she created a list with NO recycled challenges so it is a really special month, which makes it even cooler it is my birthday month! AND MY BIRTHDAY is the 16th, and see what it is? BOO YAA!


Here’s some more details on the list, explaining what each prompt might mean – BUT you can interpret it however you like. There are no rules.
