Guess what? Including this month, five more months of challenges and I’ll have done it for a whole year! I’m not breaking my arm patting myself on the back — not yet anyway — but I’m kind of excited. I’m thinking about what I’m going to do with these images.
Maybe I’ll make a calendar.
Maybe I’ll print out my favorites and hang them in the house.
Maybe I’ll make a coffee-table book called “Hilary Snaps” and fill it with 365 images of photo challenges.
Maybe I’ll do absolutely nothing except revel in the fact that I set a goal and completed it. I’ll make t-shirt for that.
Whatever the case may be, I’m excited and I really want to get people to participate. My hashtag (#hilarywithonel) is really being used — I’m claiming some real estate out in the social media megaverse!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Photo A Day Challenge, I’ve provided you with a list of prompts or suggestions for each day of the month. On the designated day, you snap a photo of the suggestion or a photo of your interpretation of the suggestion and post it to Instagram. You can add a caption to your photo, as well as the hashtag #hilarywithonel so we can keep up with you. If you input #hilarywithonel in the Instagram search box, you’ll be able to see what others have already posted.
These monthly challenges are part of my greater year long challenge to take one photo a day. You can follow my progress here: f/365
Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day. It’s just a fun way to be creative. No penalties for missed days, and no prize for hitting all the days – well, satisfaction is a prize in and of itself right?
Snap on, my friends, snap on.
