August Photo a Day

Photo a Day challenges are awesome! We have a fun list up at in the Get It Scrapped forum so anyone can play along. I'll be sharing my here each week.

Ready! Here's the first round:

1. August

Day 1: August

I like starting these challenges with a creative photo from a calendar.

2. On Cloud Nine

Day 2: On Cloud Nine

We had some gorgeous blue skies with a dotting of puffy clouds that were perfect for this prompt.

3. If the Shoe Fits

Day 3: If the Shoe Fits

My kid has a ton of shoes and they are in piles around my house. The funny part is that he hardly wears shoes. He's just like his mom.

4. New

Day 4: New

A piece from my hubby's antique medical collection. It's never been opened so it's technically new.

5. Ant's Eye View

Day 5: Ant's Eye View

This is our cat, Butters, who decided he was going to help me get this photo. I put the camera on the floor in order to get a shot looking up. Butters decided the camera needed to capture up his nose.

6. Full Plate

Opps! I missed this one. 

7.  Architecture

Day 7: Architecture

This photo isn't a literal interpretation of the prompt. These are words from an activist in Zimbabwe torn from an article in National Geographic. What Mazvarira said really spoke to me. It's these sort words that are the architecture of change in a society... and for women globally. 

If you want to join in the fun, feel free. This is not a rigid challenge- you can take all 31 photos daily or pick the prompts that inspire you. You can do an entire week in day. There really is no wrong way or any cheating. The idea is exercise your creative muscles and photography skills. Come share with us on the GIS Forum.
