Whilst browsing online, looking at blogs for interest but also for ideas, content, format and layout, I came across #fmsphotoaday.

A list of words are shared with a facebook group and the challenge is to post a photo, relating to the word of the day.

Such a great idea. It encourages my photography, it inspires me to be creative, to notice the simple things, to look for the beauty in everyday things. And I get to see photos from others in the group, a global crowd, in different time zones and seasons. I’m loving it. Roll on September, when I plan to post an image every day.

August Collage

I only joined mid month but here is a collage of my photos for August.

** words ** Planning a move from UK to Australia so this little book of words is vital right now.

** nearby ** in the pond in our garden, just outside the patio doors

** breakfast **

** dessert ** So many choices… strawberries… lemon cheesecake….phish food ice cream…. but decided on this one. “Chocolate by the Bald Man” at Manly Wharf in Sydney (July 2013)

** fragrant **

** travel ** my daily commute. I have been doing this for far too long. Last time today!

** mail ** I enjoy buying and sending postcards and have a few ready to go.
I love receiving postcards too. Technology is great but hope we don’t lose snail mail.

** dull ** Being wide awake in the middle of the night is dull.

** 10am ** Sunday Papers in bed. Back in the day vs today – paper vs iPad – newly weds vs empty nesters
