Photo Fun in June-come join the party!


Okay - all of my good ideas really come from Kadie - and this is another one.  {you rock, Kadie} We've all seen those photo challenges popping up all over the place, so we {being madly in love with our cameras} wanted to have our own kind of fun, too.   AND WE WANT THIS TO BE A PARTY!!!  SO...here's the deal:

COME JOIN US!!!  You DON'T have to take amazing photos, you don't have to be a photographer, and you don't need a high-end camera.  Use your crap phone, smart phone, point & shoot, SLR, whatever you have - this is not a competition - just an 'art' thing.  It's your own personal interpretation of the subject matter.

Get creative!  Your self portrait could consist of you wearing a spandex leotard and a feather boa - who cares?!  {well...maye I would care...spandex is just gross...} But you get the point, right?!  

AND...these photos have to be taken ON THE DAY SPECIFIED - or one day before and posted on the day specified.  No old photos are allowed.  No cheaties.  So since the challenge starts June 1st, you can take your self portrait on May 30th, edit it that night, and post it on June 1st.  Make sense? Otherwise, take pictures & post them on the specific day.

Come join our Flickr Group!!!  Just make sure to add your "subject" description and/or date so we know what you're posting.  Now go gather up all of your friends to join us for the party.  {Kadie and I don't want to be 'those girls' sitting at the party and nobody shows up.  How nerdy. And hurtful.}




You should be able to print this and hang in somewhere so you can remember what we're doing.  Let me know if you have troubles.

Hi Abby! I would love to participate. Between being a wife, mother, nurse and going to girls camp.... I may have to miss a day or two but I will work hard to keep up. Of course I have a blog you can check out but no link here...I don't handle rejection well. Lisa
