Here it is! Photo a day August challenge list

Fat Mum Slim /

It’s time! Time for another photo a day list. Are you ready?

I can’t believe that I’m consistently taken a photo every single day this year {ok, I missed one but made up for it the next day}. That’s a pretty good effort. I’m the sort of person who gives up diets by lunchtime and can’t keep a routine. But this, I’m DOING this.

I’ve even managed it while moving house and other big life changes. Have you been doing photo a day? How do you fit it into your life? How do you manage to remember?

Now on to the August list. This month is challenging. People said they didn’t want any repeats from previous lists, so I listened. And I created. The reason I often do repeats is because people haven’t played every month, but most of all it challenges people to be creative. With the same prompt, you don’t have to take the same photo you’ve taken before – you have to think outside the box. Not that it matters for this month, because they’re all new.

The hashtag for August is #photoadayaug

If you’re new to photo a day, click here for instructions on how to play.  In a nutshell, just follow the list, use the daily prompt as inspiration and take a photo. Share that photo anywhere you like, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Twitter etc.

Here’s some more details on the list, explaining what each prompt might mean – BUT you can interpret it however you like. There are no rules.

1. Outside: Take a photo of outside {outdoors} or something outside of something. So a person outside a door, a lolly {candy} outside a lolly {candy} jar.
2. One: This can be anything. The number 1. The word one. A single item.
3. Coin: This can be money. Perhaps a coin you see on the ground. One from your wallet.
4. Somewhere you sat: Where have you sat today? Take a photo.
5. Logo: Take a photo of a logo, on something you buy, somewhere you see it or something you have at home. Or even your own logo? If you have one.
6. Writing: This could be your own writing, something you’re reading, or something someone wrote to you.
7. 8 o’clock: Take a photo of whatever you’re doing/seeing at 8am or 8pm. Or both.
8. Glasses: This could be drinking glasses, sunglasses or spectacles. Great creative in how you shoot them.
9. Messy: What’s a mess? Take a photo of it. Again, be creative. Think outside the box.
10. Ring: This could be a ring {like a wedding ring}, or a circle or even someone on the phone? It could be a whole host of things. Even gymnast rings.
11. Purple: Take a photo of something purple.
12. Spoon: Take a photo of a spoon, the eating utensil.
13. Simple: Take a photo of simplicity, whatever this means to you. Perhaps it’s a really simple photo {without much distraction} or a photo of something simple in your life {a simple dinner like eggs on toast or something}.
14. Arrow: Take a photo of an arrow.
15. Ready: What’s ready right now? Are you ready to explore? Is your lunch ready? Are you ready to leave? This one will get you thinking.
16. Food: Take a photo of food, real or play.
17. Faces: Do you see faces in things? In clouds, on cars? Take a photo. Or take a pic of real faces.
18. Inside: Go outside and look in, take a photo. Or take a photo of something inside something else.
19. Hole: Take a photo of a hole.
20. Today: Take a photo of something in your day today.
21. Cool: This can be something in temperature or something that’s ‘hip’.
22. Home: What reminds you of home? Or even take a photo of your home. Or simple a house.
23. Pair: Take a photo of a pair, two people, salt and pepper, two things that go together.
24. Path: Take a photo of a path, or your feet on the path.
25. Fresh: Take a photo of something fresh. Like fresh food, or the weather {if it’s fresh} or something cool {“That’s fresh!”}
26. Dream: What did you dream about last night? Or what are your ‘hopes and dreams’?
27. Tap: Take a photo of a tap, or someone or something ‘tapping’.
28. Clock: Take a photo of a time-telling device.
29. Down: Look down, take a photo. Or however you want to interpret this!
