Day 365+1!

So you have made it through the whole year!!!!  I can't thank you all enough for sticking with this challenge and I'm so happy to have brought this merry little band together.  I only wish I could've stuck with my own challenge, but never mind!

Tomorrow sees in a new year (and my birthday :)) and I hope 2013 brings you all much joy and happiness as well as a few challenges along the way to make the good times sweeter!

This will be the final post on this blog.  But don't forget, Jen is leading Lucky Snapping in 2013 which I hope you will all take part in.  I will no doubt be dipping in and out of it if this year is anything to go by!  I would also like to bring another challenge to your attention, for those of you who ARE looking for another daily challenge - do have a look at the blog of Fat Mum Slim who runs a daily challenge, but posts a month's worth of words at a time ... I plan to attempt this one, but no promises of course!

So, on to the final prompt of 2012.

A note ...

Hello lovely people

I just wanted to let you all know that I have (finally) updated the "the prompts" page on the blog, so you can more easily see if you've missed a day ... I think there might be a few errors though, where I might've changed the prompt at the last minute, and there are a couple of duplicates, so if you see anything amiss please do let me know!

Also, I was thinking thoughts might be turning to next year ... as I'm sure you've probably all guessed, I will not be running this challenge again next year!  I MIGHT, however, carry on/try again with a photo a day, and might carry on posting my daily photo on this blog.

In my internet travels I have come across a couple of challenges that are going ahead next year, and I will prepare a blog post on these in the very near future, so you can see if you might be interested in joining any of those.  One of them is a Daily Challenge group on Facebook which is the one I might (or might not!) do ...

Huge thanks to the little band of merry snappers who have stuck with this from the beginning!  Keep going ... the end is nigh!


Day 296

Today's prompt is

B&W repeating pattern

Here's mine :)

Sunday, 21 October 2012

Day 295

Today, show us a

black and white close-up

Here's mine ... a close-up of a pile of bracelets I made.

***new app alert!!  I've just downloaded a new FREE iPhone app which is ... well, awesome! It's called Camera Awesome! For any iPhone users amongst you - download it now!!!***

Saturday, 20 October 2012

Day 294

Today, let's see a

black and white portrait

I had intended to take a more traditional portrait today, but no-one was willing to pose for me. My last resort was my mum, who had been ill earlier in the week following a flu jab. I thought she had improved, though, and would be up for modelling for me, however she has deteriorated again and was feeling and looking pretty grim. So here is a faceless'portrait' of my poor mum ... this is part of her pharmacy collection that keeps her alive!

Friday, 19 October 2012

Day 293

For the next week, I want to see some black & white photos!  If this is a problem for you and you can't convert to B&W, then please go ahead and stick with colour!  There might be some repetition of earlier prompts here ......

Today, show me a

black and white landscape

Not the best photo from me! I am trying to do these all using the hipstagram app and its not great for black and white so far!

Thursday, 18 October 2012
