Photo a day July: See the list & join the challenge

It’s July tomorrow. Tomorrow! Where has this year gone? It’s gone by in a blur of moving house and having fun, mostly. What about you?

A new month means one thing, another photo a day challenge. Are you ready to play along in July?

Here’s how to play:

1. Look at the list. What’s the prompt for the day? Let’s pretend it’s self portrait.
2. Take a photo of yourself, either in the mirror or some way else.
3. Upload your photo to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, your blog, Pinterest or where ever it is you want to share your photo. Use the hashtag #photoadayjuly so people can find your photos
4. Check out everyone else’s photos. Comment or like them!
