For the last two months, I’ve been taking a photo a day, using lists of prompts from the internet.
Why? I enjoy taking photos, and having a daily prompt makes me pick up my camera more often than I otherwise would. And it also makes me take photos of things I otherwise wouldn’t!
This month, I used Fat Mum Slim’s April photo prompts.
I shared some of these on Instagram (I’m thefrugalgirl over there), but some of you aren’t on Instagram (WHY), so I put them all into a post here for you.
It’s hard to choose one thing for this prompt…but walking outdoors in spring definitely is fun for me.
This is Me
Well, it’s me, correcting math.
That’s not exactly a great representation of my personal passions, but it IS something I’ve spent lots of hours doing in the last 15 years of homeschooling.
(I used the timer on my phone for this one.)
This prompt was for the purpose of taking a photo of what’s around you. And something that’s often around me is this: a kid reading a book.
These are ingredients for orange chipotle chicken tacos. But without the chicken, obviously!
The only shoes I can walk in with my broken toe. Aside from flip-flops.
Ok, that seemed a bit personal. So here’s a view from our outdoor bed, the hammock!
This hanger’s cross bar broke, but it’s still perfectly good for shirts.
I got charcoal toothpaste in my Mighty Fix and it looks SO strange on my toothbrush!
A daffodil was the obvious choice.
I did this today
This: getting my glasses adjusted. Unfortunately, they are still hurting my head bones.
I have a sensitive head, apparently.
Makes me laugh
This is a weed of some sort. I was about to get rid of it, but Lisey said no, we should keep it, and we should name it Cauliflower.
So now I have this unknown plant in my border, named Cauliflower, and I can’t really get rid of it now that it’s named.
(I don’t make the rules here, people.)
It makes me laugh every time I see it.
This isn’t exactly a night sky, but a dusky sky.
When the sun is going down, the light gets very blue and you can really see that when you take a photo.
I got these pants right before Sonia was born in March 2004.
Somehow, they’re still kicking. Good job, L.L. Bean.
A bunch of leftovers, mixed together and topped with sriracha.
An azalea, not quite blooming. Sometimes I think flowers look more interesting before they bloom.
A good thing
Rain after a week of yellow oak pollen dust.
Someone you love
I really love the shape of redbud leaves, especially when they’re tiny.
From a walk Mr. FG and I went on. I only had my phone with me, but I wished I had my SLR!
A shirt of mine from ThredUp. You can see the whole shirt in this post.
A green food
This window is under an overhang, which means that all the dirt and pollen has not been washed away by the rain.
I could think of a lot of things that represent freedom to me, but this is definitely one: NO SHOES.
I love having my toes free. Such a good feeling!
And that’s the last one!
Fatmumslim’s May photo prompts are all colors, so I might give that one a try.
