I’m nearing the end of the ABC Photo Challenge now, and the end of the alphabet is much more difficult than the start! Today is V, and I haven’t taken a photograph yet, I can’t think of anything just now, and the weather is so awful that I don’t feel much like exploring to try and find inspiration! As with last week, some of my daily photos here are the alphabet photos, but some aren’t.
~ Day 58 ~
This is an owl teapot that has been in the house for as long as I can remember, and I thought I had no idea where it came from. However, I do remember seeing it featured on Design is Mine last year, and I commented on the post saying that it came from my mum’s sister-in-law. I must have asked her at the time where she got it, but I don’t remember the answer – I’m glad that I did comment, otherwise I’d probably have no idea! Anyway, this was my O photo (or at least, the photo was of this owl) for Monday.
~ Day 59 ~
This was my P photo – I went with ‘Project’ (I know, scraping the barrel a little bit!). I have been knitting squares for a while, with the overall plan being to knit them together to create a blanket. I’m not sure how well it’s going to work to be honest, because they are mostly all different sizes, despite coming out of the same book. So we’ll have to see.
This was always my plan for Q – what else would I have taken a photograph of! I was going to take a photo of the ‘vintage’ tin we have that has become the sewing box, but it didn’t look vintage enough, so I didn’t bother. This is one that had for Christmas, and there is actually still a chocolate or two left in it!
My R photo was such a cop out (I drew a very basic rainbow on a piece of paper and took a photo of it), that I couldn’t include it here in all good conscience! I was struggling all day with it, so I took a photo of my egg cup too, so that I would have a standby for Project 366 if I needed one! I love this egg cup, I got it for my birthday from Anna but have only just used it!
~ Day 62 ~
Every time I go to Anna and Rob’s house, it crosses my mind how much I like their light fittings. I don’t even know why, it must just be the pattern that I like. Anyway, I was there on Friday, and my S photo had been a photo of myself, entitled ‘Self Portrait’ (and I had added some effect to hide the fact that I wasn’t looking great). I wasn’t going to include that on here, so I took a photograph of the aforementioned light fitting.
~ Day 63 ~
Saturday night was my brother’s engagement party – he proposed to his girlfriend Bex on Valentine’s Day, and here is the happy couple! It was a fun night!
~ Day 64 ~
This was a potential U photo for yesterday, but I ended up going with a photograph of the UK in my atlas! I wanted to use my atlas for my A photo, because I love it, but I couldn’t find it. As it turned out, it was on my bookshelf all along and I just hadn’t been looking properly. Anyway, so I went with my umbrella, which is hanging outside from the last time I used it. I didn’t go out yesterday (combination of tiredness, slight hangover from the night before, and sheer laziness), and I don’t plan on going out today, so the umbrella can stay where it is. It wouldn’t last long today anyway; it’s so windy here!
So that’s Week Ten done! As I said, I’m nearing the end of the ABC Photo Challenge, so I’m going to have to start thinking of things on my own again. I might try and give myself a weekly theme, or something, so that I can motivate myself to take the photos. We’ll see how it goes; I’m mightily impressed that I haven’t missed a day yet!
