Photo365+1

Today I'm catching up with Photo365+1. Yes, I am still remembering to take a picture every day (those prompts are a big help!). I'm looking forward to ordering a batch of prints - maybe at the end of February. I don't think I'll be able to hold off much longer than that. Most of the things I probably wouldn't ever have thought of photographing before: but now each picture gives me another story to tell..



9. Water - tenuous? Maybe. But I always end up ironing on a Monday
10. Metallic - I picked out the bell to photograph, then spotted the old street directory I bought in a charity shop. It has an ad for a scrap metal merchant on the spine.
11. Item of clothing - my bag du jour. Could do double duty as "metallic"
12. Translucent - a bag of pine nuts for making pesto.


13. Inside the Fridge - I like to keep chocolate biscuits in the fridge becasue I only really like them when they are cold. I loathe warm, melty chocolate.
14. Guilty Pleasure - CD's I have had for a very long time and still play regularly.
15. Generous - A box of treats sent from friends in San Diego. We are having fun trying out some new delights.
16. Snack - I couldn't resist adding the purple cover of Scrap365 to the picture of my purple wrappered snack bar.


17. Naughty - A pile of scrapbooking stuff I haven't put away.
18. Pleasurable - More scrapbooking - a new Amy Tan daybook from Gotta Craft
19. Something bad for you - A favourite photo. My car. I need to do more walking..
20. A Sign - A junk mail catalogue which made me think. A trip to the museum would be good..

That's it for today. The next set of photos will be "hot". But think more blowtorches than babes..

It's really interesting seeing your photos in response to the various prompts. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with all the photos!

It's actually Hipstamatic - with John S lens and Blanko film

Amy said...

I like where the prompts are taking you Sian - no doubt you are amassing a variety of interesting shots for future projects.

Great collection of photographs. Favourite probably the book and the bell. It will be really interesting to see how this project develops. Have fun!

JO SOWERBY said...

Suzy said...

Fab pics as always Sian - looking forward to seeing some of them scrapped

Cheri said...

another great round of photos Sian!

Lisa said...

the hipstamatic photos look so good - in love with this setting.

great photos - you seem to be more inventive than me right now - I'm still struggling to find my rhythm

Alana said...

Great range of photos Sian. I'm still thinking about todays prompt. Have you tried the instagram app as well? It's pin interest all over again:) also Be Funky is a good app.

Gail said...

Great pictures Sian. Love your take on the prompts.

Looks like we even have the same iron! I love the way different people interpret the same word.
I was sitting at work drinking a cup of coffee out of my Brad Pitt mug and wondered if I could use that for 'hot'. Hot guy and hot drink - sorted. (decided against it in the end though!)

Suzie said...

Gorgeous photos! Love them all :) And now I need an Amy Tan daybook ...

Maria Ontiveros said...

I thought that box of treats looked rather American - LOL! Thanks for the thought of going to a museum. . . definitely something we haven't done in quite a while.

What a great selection of photos, I love the vintage effect that you've added to them too. I spy the Amy tan book, I'm busy planning what to put in mine so can't wait to see what you put in yours!

Jennifer said...

Your photos are terrific! These prompts must really get the ideas flowing! Your album will be wonderful!

Sandra said...

oohhhh now, I have to play with Hipstamatic on mine LOL. Sian, its such fun to see your week this way, and I like your take on the themes :)

Louise said...

A great selection of photos - I can see one or two layouts from these. I've been looking at the Amy Tan books for a while now I might wait to see yours before i make a final decision :)

helena said...

love the combination of the everyday objects and funky effects

Becky said...

Love your collection of photos :)

Micayla said...

OOH I love looking at photographs, you have some good angles there.

Ruth said...

You've done really well with the daily prompts ... I think I'd like to see more of that old street directory. What are you planning for the prints or am I not allowed to ask?

Jo.C said...

Great shots and I love the vintage feel they have with the app. I was trying to guess which was which before reading but mixed up completely the first set :0)

Jo said...

Great photos of some unusual things

Karen said...

I love the way you've responded to the prompts. Great ideas here. I'm enjoying this project, too, though I am taking lots of baby photos for this month and not often responding to the prompts from the site I'm using.

Karen said...

Super set of photos Sian.

jennifer said...

Great set of photos, it's a nice glimpse into your daily life. I'm jealous of the amy tangerine daybook. And the homemade pesto! x

Scrappi Sandi said...

I've loved this catch-up! Great pics & beautifully presented! :}

Melissa said...

What a great batch of photos, Sian! I haven't taken many photos this month, but these have given me some ideas for everyday things I wouldn't normally photograph.

alexa said...

I've really enjoyed these peeks into your visual life - the 'look' of these photos is really interesting. Blowtorches, eh? I'll be waiting eagerly for the story!

Nathalie said...

This is so fun to look at and read! I love your interpretations of each prompts and your photos! The ensemble has a nice mood :)

Kelli said...

love your little capture of life :)

Sue Althouse said...

Nice set of photos! I could use some prompts right about now, we take so few pictures during the winter months.

Wanda said...

Coming soon to a scrapbook page near you? Fun shots--I especially liked the addition of the charity shop directory to the one for "metallic".

Alison said...

I'm enjoying seeing everyone's 'takes' on the prompts!

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

Some interesting takes on the prompts. I'm only using them on days when I haven't taken a photo of anything else! A few things I noticed that we have in common:ironing on a Monday, keeping chocolate in the fridge and a copy of Brick Lane on the shelf :o)

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Oh, Sian, I have loved looking at your photos. Leave it to you and your great eye for composition to come up with some great shots of simple-ordinary-every-day-things. Well done on keeping up with the photo-a-day! xo

Lisa-Jane said...

I managed about 3 days :-( Well done for keeping up with it and your photos are fab even though they are of everyday things. Maybe I could just do a week or something... ;-)

Miriam said...

What a great collection of photo's. Mine are so random, but it will be interesting to see a whole months worth.
I am thinking of doing a theme for February, Fruit & Veg for Feb maybe?
I thought I was the only person in the world that will only eat chocolate from the fridge! I also keep hand cream and lipstick in my fridge, how about you?

Sandie said...

I like the way you have showed your photos Sian and its good to see how you are using the word prompts.

Sian said...

Miriam, I also keep nail varnish in there. It stops it thickening too much
