The August Break, 2012


Woot! August Break 2012, here we go!

How it works: you simply share one photo (or more!) each day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – 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) + a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at and new blogs to discover.

Once again I asked the amazing Katrina Tan from Pugly Pixel to make a badge for us — she knocked it out of the park this year! So if you’d like to add some summer bling to your blog, either right click/ctrl click on the badge of your choice to download to your computer, or use the handy dandy code over on this page.


– I’ve started a Flickr group for our group project
, 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 the Unravelling FAQ) Even if you don’t have a blog you can join in on Flickr!

– Add your blog to the blogroll! Just scroll down to the last pic and hit ‘Click here to enter
Note — Let’s use this blogroll to find new blogs to read and enjoy so please just add your blog link once — links to your daily posts/images should be shared in the Flickr group NOT added to the blogroll list (okay, so we have one rule ;-) That way the list will stay manageable! :D

Happy August Break, everyone!

PS. 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!
