October photo a day challenge list: Come & play!

Fat Mum Slim /

Hello! Hello! Hello!

I know I say this every month, but seriously how fast are these months flying by? They’re turning into a blur of photos and prompts for me. What about you?

So last month I introduced a new hashtag for the project – #FMSphotoaday – to hopefully make things easier. Some loved it, some didn’t {and that’s okay – it happens with anything}. If you want to sort your photos into months, then please feel free to add the month to the hashtag – #FMSphotoadayOCT. I’ll just be using #FMSphotoaday.

This month I’m going to try something new. I’m going to pick 4 photos I love each day and share them in my feed. They’ll be selected from the #FMSphotoaday hashtag.

Now on to next month’s list.

For those that are new to the photo a day game, here’s how you play. Oh and anyone is welcome to join. The more the merrier!

1. Look at the list for the day.
2. Take a photo according to the prompt. eg. Day one you’d take a photo of where you stood.
3. Upload your photo to whichever platform you like {or a few}. like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr etc. I love Instagram best but share on all of them.
4. If you’re sharing on Instagram or Twitter add the hashtag #FMSphotoaday
5. Check out other people’s photos.

A lot of people share on my Facebook page too. Just upload a photo straight onto my wall. Visit my Facebook page here.

Here’s a little about each prompt, in case you’re wondering. BUT there are really no rules, however you interpret the prompt is perfect!
