Photo A Day | Week Nine | February/March

Fat Mum Slim /

Morning.

I’m writing this post from a particularly soggy part of Australia. We’ve had rains for days, that I kinda forget what the sun looks and feels like. We’re getting the tail end of the cyclone, which has fizzled down to lots of rain and minor winds. I hope that everyone up north is dry and safe.

Today I’m bringing you week 9 of photo a day, and this list is nothing short of beautiful. I’m in love with it. When the team at Santiago Sunbird sent it over, I actually gasped. It’s just so stunning.

Santiago Sunbird specialise in watercolours, and beautiful invites. So if you ever need anything I recommend checking them out.

I hope you have fun this week, and your photo-taking moments are magical or inspiring or fun or interesting.

    Chantelle I love this list, the beautiful artwork by @santiagosunbirdand the fact that you keep this going. I’Ve woken up earlier than usual as I’m at a crossroad decision wise about what I want to do as far as my work life. You remind me to follow my dreams, stay authentic and have fun along the way with fmsphotoaday. The prompts often make me look at my life and world closer or in a different way. Your site is an inspiration to me that you are following your dreams. Thank you and I look forward to making this one of my creative outlets whenever I can.

  • The rain has been pretty horrific hasn’t it? We went out yesterday to take photos of the crazy amount of water and rivers everywhere. I’ve been miserable for a few days now! Although today was a lot sunnier so hopefully the weather is going to improve again!
