A photo a day for October - week 1

I’m doing this photo a day challenge again this month. I last did one in May and quite enjoyed the discipline of having to think creatively about how to interpret the word or phrase for each day in an Instagram photograph.

I’ve created a Pinterest board for this month’s shots but without further ado, here are my photographs for week 1. All of them are taken with my iPhone Instagram app and I’ve played about with some of them using snapseed.

October 1 ~ where you stood

October 2 ~ lunchtime

October 3 ~ this happened today (I went to an Oxford Brookes Uni English Lit lecture with comedian Stewart Lee)

October 4 ~ what you read (Issue 02 of The Simple Things magazine - perfection in a beautifully-bound matte cover)

October 5 ~ shadow (I confess I delved into the archive for this one as I didn’t get round to thinking about the shot until 6pm, by which point I was contending with a flat, low cloud, virtually no sunlight and very little inspiration…)

October 6 ~ I’m thankful for… (unexpected reminders of treasured childhood memories)

October 7 ~ light
