The August break, joining in with film photos.

I am joining in with Susannah Conway this year again and taking a photo a day for The August Break. There are daily prompts which can be taken on whichever camera you may choose. I am lucky enough to have a Minolta 35mm camera from 1980 something, so I am planning to take each photo with that. So unless I also take a digital picture too, I won’t be posting everyday until I get the film developed. Hopefully I will snap other photos with my camera along the way, and use up the film so that I can get them printed a couple of times during August and see what I came up with. Will I get a serious case of ‘fear of missing out’ if I don’t post an Instagram August Break picture daily? Maybe, but I think I will just stick to the film camera and see how they come out. Hopefully not all out of focus or wrongly exposed. Just think, this is how we took all photos only a few years …

The August Break 2014

I am joining in with Susannah Conway’s August Break this year and taking daily shots following her prompts and tips.  I must say that I am enjoying the e mails she sends out every day immensely, some are photos and tips from Susannah and some are guest tipsters like the wonderful Xanthe Berkeley.  Lots of ideas, inspiration and creativity going on! So, for the month of August, I will be sharing the week’s ‘Break’ photos on a Monday.  I am keeping my phone or camera handy and my eyes open this month hoping to get some great end of summer pics! Here are days 1 – 3. 1.  Lunch.  Jimmy Johns delivery sandwich while I have a quick peek at Oh Comely magazine.   2.  Pattern.   3.  Window. I found this learning French book and I love the illustrations in it.  It was published in the 1960’s and so colourful and ace! I am looking forward to finding cool stuff through August and getting lots of ideas. Happy week to you!
