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.
~ Day 60 ~
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!
~ Day 61 ~
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!
