play along!

Apologies: Silly me! It appears that when I first posted this, I gave credit the wrong creator of the Photo A Day Challenge! Although it's hard to find sources when there are no credits given, I have to admit, I did not do my due diligence on this one. Thanks to Pugly Pixel, who definitely gives credit where credit is due, I found out! And so many thanks you Fat Mum Slim for creating such a fun challenge!

It's not too late to join in on Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day challenge! All you have to do is hashtag your photo of the day with #janphotoaday.
Day no. 3, Something you adore. I adore being able to ride my bike to Sbux to get an iced coffee!
Day No. 1: You—err me, knitting in my p.jays
Day No. 2: Breakfast. An apple raisin cinnamon roll made with whole wheat and white grape juice.

And as simple as it may seem, I have to admit I have found taking these photos a challenge! My Instagram feed is random by nature. Since I work from home, naturally, I spend a large portion of my day there. So a lot of my photos are from what's happening around me during my day. I do take care in choosing what I feel are thoughtful compositions, and I try to keep the subject matter interesting, but not a lot of premeditation goes into what I shoot on the regular. So being told what I have to take a picture of makes it kind of hard. take today for example... I'm like wandering around the house looking for something I adore to take a photo of. Now, there are a ga-jillion zillion things around here that I love and it was so difficult trying to find something that stood out among the rest. It was when I stepped outside and got on my bike to go grab a coffee that I was like, aahhhh! Now this is something new that I absolutely adore. I am so in love with finally being able to ride my bike into town; it is not even funny. It's a great thing to be challenged to step outside of our box every once in a while!

If you are an iPhone user and you've not yet found Instagram, I highly recommend the app! I think I've heard recently that the creators are working on an android version, but I am not sure what kind of progress they've made on it. If you're an android user and you know, please do share!

Aaaand! I just read on DesignLoveFest about this site where you can view your favorite Instagram photos and feeds on a larger scale! I still like Statigram, because let's face it, I'm a nerd and nerds like stats, but I also like BIG soooo gosh it's a toss up for me. Too much fun going on everywhere I tell ya.

p.s. you can find me on Instagram... I'm hanasaurusrex, but of course you knew that ;)
