Ok, so 30 day challenges and even 265 challenges aren't new, what makes this one different?
Well nothing really! The only difference is for me. Over the previous two years I have used generic suggestions but this year the challenges have been set by you - my friends and followers, and I thank you all for your fantastic suggestions. Hopefully, as they are your suggestions rather than the nationally published suggestions, you as the observers will find it more engaging, waiting to see what I might come up with for your own chosen day.
I have to say, all suggestions are do-able, although some will involve more planning ahead. (Thankfully one kind soul said they spared me the challenge of photographing freshly fallen snow! ...but then again!) Others are the sort which will be a 'let's get up on the morning and see how this brief can be fulfilled' type. I would love it if you would stay with me throughout the month and share if you will.
What about the rules? Well nothing too complicated. Simply:
-The picture is to be taken on the designated day. (I will endeavour to include a grab of the meta-data as proof)
-Barring exceptional circumstances, the image will be posted on my blog before midnight on the designated day.
-I am allowed artistic licence when interpreting the brief.
And now, the list you have been waiting for. Listed in simple terms, here is the full month (More details about each challenge will be included with the image when it is posted)
