The August Break, 2010

Okay, here’s the plan for the August break: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you want. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, 35mm, video – with or without words – anything goes – for the whole of August. No pressure –  just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.

There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.

The original post that shared the idea is here… with more thoughts here… and here :)

* You can join us at any time during August – this is an informal challenge and there are no rules, remember, so jump in at any time! *

If you’d like to add a badge to your blog (totally not a requirement) :



Here’s the badge code:

I’ve started a Flickr group for our experiment, so if you’d like to add your daily photos, and chat to other participants, you can. It’s a public group so anyone can join – all you need is a Flickr account (instructions on how to set one up (it’s free) are in my FAQ) * if you don’t have a blog you can join in on Flickr! *

Happy August everyone! x
