December photo a day: Let’s end the year with a snap!

December photo a day list! #FMSphotoaday

I’m going to be completely predictable and say, I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. I really can’t. But it’s time to end it with a bang snap and finish up with a month of photo-taking fun. You up for it?

So let’s jump right into it. For those that are new to it all, let me explain what photo a day is. Everyday people all around the world look at the list {above}, and take a photo according to the date. So on the 1st of December we’ll take a photo at 8 o’clock {am or pm, doesn’t matter}. So whatever you’re doing when the clock strikes 8 – take a photo. And then share it. So upload it to Facebook {your own page, or my Facebook page}, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, your blog, Tumblr – where ever you please. If you’re sharing to Instagram or Twitter – use the hashtag #FMSphotoaday.

Don’t forget to bookmark this page so you can find the list easily.

The hashtag #FMSphotoaday is a way to share on Instagram and Twitter. By using the hashtag it groups all the photos shared together, so everyone can check out the photos for our photo a day challenge.

Here’s a little bit more about each prompt:

1. 8 o’clock: Take a photo at whatever you’re doing at 8am or 8pm.
2. Peace: What does peace look like for you? Or take a photo of a peace sign.
3. Something you held: a child, your phone, a gift, a shopping bag – anything!
4. Black + white: Use a black + white filter on a photo of your choice, or take a photo of something black and white.
5. Looking up: Get down on the ground and take a photo from down low, looking up.
6. From where you live/your country: Take a photo of something from your country – a flag, something unique, a traditional dish, or something a little bit more common.
7. Stars: Take a photo of the stars at night, or stars you see around the place during the day.
8. Someone you love: At this time of year we’re often catching up with loved ones. Take a photo of someone you love. If you’re not seeing a loved one today – take a photo of a photo – or get creative.
9. Out + about: Whatever you do today, take a photo while you’re doing it.
10. Under: Take a photo of something {anything!} under something.

14. Something green: Find something green in your travels today and take a photo to share.
15. Outdoors: Get outside and snap something outside.

17. On the floor: Look down and shoot something on the ground.
18. Makes you feel merry: What’s making you happy today? Shoot it.
19. Something beginning with ‘s’: Find something beginning with S and shoot it.

21. Tree: Take a photo of a tree {yes, we did this last month – but try and be creative!}
22. Decoration: It could be Christmas related, or a decoration in your home.
23. Joy is______: What makes your filled with joy? Take a photo.
24. Tradition/something you always do: What’s something you always do? A family tradition?
25. Lunchtime: If you celebrate Christmas – take a photo of what you’re doing at lunchtime {traveling, partying, opening gifts, laughing, drinking}. If you don’t celebrate Christmas – share what you did at lunchtime.
26. Mess: Take a photo of a mess. Or a lack of one if you’re that way inclined.
27. How you relax: How do you like to chill out? Read a book, lay on the beach? Take a photo.
28. Cold: Take a photo of something cold.
29. Hot: Take a photo of something hot.
30. Something that made you smile this year: Reflect on the year gone by and find something made you smile.
31. Self-portrait: Take your last selfie for the year. If you’re partying, take a photo with friends. If you’re having a quiet night in, take a photo of what you’re doing. Self-portraits don’t have to be obvious. I like very abstract ones – feet are an easy way to take a photo of yourself.

There are no rules about playing. Just have fun. Be as creative as you can or want to be. Just take a photo each day using the prompt. I know some people struggle to take photos everyday, so don’t stress. You could choose to just do the weekends, or just a few. It’s meant to be fun, so if it becomes stressful find a way to make it fun.

Each day I’ll be checking out the photos shared to my Facebook wall and the Instagram feed and sharing my four favourite finds.

If I’ve missed anything, or if you have any questions – please leave them in the comments and I’ll get back to you.

Is this your first month playing? Or have you played along before? I’d love to know!
