The Weekend Photo Project: September

The Weekend Photo Project - September

so how has your Weekend Photo Project been going?

I’ve managed to post a photo every weekend to the blog *patting myself on the back*, which is a darn sight better than I managed at the beginning of the year….

This month’s prompts are varied to appeal to all of the different personalities that play along.

which do you think will be your favourite one to photograph?

Want to join in and share your Weekend Photo Project photos?  Here’s where you can –

Facebook: Create an album (title suggestion – My Weekend Photo Project) and upload your photos (and don’t forget to add the hashtag #twpp now that FB does hashtags). You can make your album public so that anyone can have a look at your photos or you can share your photos with me over on my biz page.

Your blog: Upload your photos to your blog and share them with the wide world. Leave a link here so that others can follow the snail-trail.

Flickr: Share your photos at The Weekend Photo Project group.

Pinterest: If you’re on Pinterest create a board for your weekend photos. Don’t forget to add the tag #twpp so that others can search for them. I have a The Weekend Photo Project Pinterest board that I’m going to invite people to pin on. If you’d love to be involved, follow the board and I’ll send you an invite!

Instagram: Snap a photo with you phone or i-device and upload your photo to Instagram. You’ll find me here on Instagram. Don’t forget to add #twpp to your caption. Proceed to share!

Twitter: Use Instagram, link to your Pinterest board or your blog. And remember to add #twpp as your hashtag.

Anywhere else you like: I’m sure I’ve left out others ways of sharing, so leave a comment below and let everyone know where your photos will be!

Be sure and leave a comment below to let me (and everyone else) know where you’ll be sharing your photos. Visit other people’s photos. Like them. Comment.  And join in the fun!

He couldn’t wait to try it out – mainly to see how fast he could go riding down the slope of our street…

Which was 41.2 kilometres per hour.  Which he was determined to break.  Which he did.

We cut the cake after dinner - chocolate zucchini cake, with chocolate icing and M&M's... Delicately decorated by the birthday boy himself.

We cut the cake after dinner – chocolate zucchini cake, with chocolate icing and M&M’s… delicately (read: they were thrown in the general direction of the cake and his mouth) decorated by the birthday boy himself.

So he's officially 13.  Officially an annoying teenage boy.... Wouldn't have it any other way.

word(less) wednesday

She's been a part of our lives for the last 5-odd years, but the realisation that she's getting old has struck this winter.  It's the first time she's ever allowed herself to be tucked up tight in a blanket...

The Weekend Photo Project: August

The Weekend Photo Project - August

hello

The Weekend Photo Project got lost there for a little bit – sorry.

But we’re back with both boots on, so dust off your cameras and nudge the Muse awake, because August’s prompts are live!

never heard of The Weekend Photo Project?

It’s basically a 52-project that I developed, initially for myself.  As much as I love photography and wish that I could (would?) stop long enough to take photos each-and-every-single-day, there are a lot of days where it simply doesn’t happen.

So to take the pressure off of a daily project, I thought, why not just take photos on weekends?

There are a few of us who have been involved in The Weekend Photo Project over the last 18-months or so (you’ll find the guys photos over on the Flickr page). We’re all busy with work and families, but we’re also a wonderfully supportive bunch of people who love our photography.

So, if you’ve been considering joining in with a photo project, why not try out The Weekend Photo Project?

Here are some of the places you can share your photos:

Blog: If you have a blog, post your photo there.
Flickr: Add your photo to your Flickr photostream. Create a set dedicated to The Weekend Photo Project and add it to The Weekend Photo Project group.  Don’t forget to tag it with #twpp.
Instagram: take your photo, pretty it up! Caption and hashtag #twpp.  Share.
Twitter:  You can share on Twitter by uploading your photo and adding #twpp.
Tumblr: Add your photo to your Tumblr feed.
Facebook:  You’ve a few options here.  Simply share with your friends on your own personal page, or you can upload it to my biz page.  Add the hashtag #twpp when you upload so that we can see who else is playing along (now that FB does hashtags!)
Pinterest: Add your photo to The Weekend Photo Project Pinterest board.  You’ll need an invite to do this, so simply follow the board and I’ll send you one asap.

Wherever you share though, please use the #twpp hashtag so that anyone can search your photos.

Want to check out other people’s photos?

Please do!  Leave a comment, a smiley, a link – whatever!  Again, the more people we can get involved, the better.  Let’s build a community of busy people who love photography.  Share your love!!

I’ve missed a weekend…

No problems. We’re all busy folk and sometimes our weekends get away from us before we know it. Just keep an eye out for the next weekends prompt (live each Friday at 2 p.m. on the blog – hint, hint… subscribe so you don’t miss them) and start planning your photo for that weekend.  We all understand that sometimes life gets in the way of your lens.

And please share this project with your friends.

If you have any further questions or suggestions, leave me a comment on the blog, Facebook or email me.

and be sure to introduce yourself in the comments section here – we always love meeting new people
