The August Break

Susannah has come up with such a cool idea, and I think I’m going to join her. From her blog:

The (loose & very adaptable) plan would be to simply share one photo per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you want. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, 35mm, video – with or without words – anything goes – for the whole of August. No pressure –  just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.

I love it! August is going to be a bit mental, and I like the combination of a challenge (a post a day) with a bit of a writing break. And hey, maybe it will give me (another) excuse to buy stationery once September rolls around. Like Susannah, my shots will mainly be  taken with my iPhone and processed using one of the gazillion apps I’ve bought (more on those soon), but I’ll try and squeeze in some mini SLR photo projects or finally get around to scanning up shots taken with my Diana Mini or Instax.

If you fancy taking part, Susannah has put up more deets here, or you can join the Flickr group here.
