August was a bit of a bust, in all honesty, when it came to Photo an Hour, because it fell on a day when I spent a large chunk of time in the car. As I mentioned in my last post, taking just one photo in the car and making it original is hard, but when it’s four hours or so, it’s really impossible! But I tried, and though the results are not interesting in any way, I’m sharing them because I’m a completist, and I can’t jump from Photo an Hour #36 to Photo an Hour #38 without feeling like I’ve got a hole in my head.
8am | See what happens when you have to round up several Photo an Hours in a short space of time? People realise even more than usual that you just do the same thing, over and over again. Saturday mornings = Wittertainment catch up time.
9am | I bought this in-shower tanning lotion, because I wanted to look slightly less than milky-white in the photos from the Spain wedding that I was at last month. I didn’t really use it that much in the lead up, and the result – the photos went online last night, and I look like a ghost.
10am | The first in-car photo, and it’s the classic wing mirror shot.
11am | At least this one was pretty.
12pm | Hannah must love Photo an Hour days when I’m in the car with her. It seems to happen a fair amount.
1pm | Huzzah – out of the car so a different type of photo! At the service for a refreshment break, and I’d just bought these shoes the day before, so I wanted to show them off. I like them a lot, but the laces never stay done up. Probably because I’m a teenager about them and can’t actually do loops because I worry that people will think I’m a loser.
2pm | Reading back on my caption for this photo reminds me that I’d been out the night before, and though I hadn’t consumed that much alcohol, the combination of it with the car journey had me feeling a little delicate, and I ended up dozing just a little bit.
4pm | I missed a 3pm photo, which was probably for the best, because what on earth would I have photographed? By 4pm, we had reached our destination (Scunthorpe, if you’re interested), and we were having a look around the shops.
5pm | More shopping, in Tesco this time. There’s just nothing more to say about this photo.
6pm | In another car (someone else’s, hence I’m in the backseat), and out for dinner. It had obviously starting raining by this time. Hashtag British summer.
So that’s that – one of the more uninteresting Photo an Hour days in my long Photo an Hour career. But I have to say, I do like looking back, even on the more mundane days, because they remind what I was doing, and where I was going.
Don’t forget that if you have a slightly more interesting day planned, and you’d like to join in, you can do so on Saturday 19th November – just take a photo every hour, and either upload them using #photoanhour, or gather them together and add them to a post (or do both!).
You can find more details here, or you can add your email to this form and I’ll endeavour to send you a reminder a couple of days in advance (I’ve been a bit rubbish at remembering to do this, but my brand new attitude to blogging means that I’m totally on top of it these days!).
