The photo a day challenge

photo.jpg

A New Year so a new challenge! So I have decided to try the photo a day challenge. Rules are you must take one photo a day but you can post them in batches. I have joined a Flickr group set up by Ricardo Torres Kompen and we already have five people signed up. I think this could be great fun and will give me a chance to get to know the affordances of Flickr and in particular what it is like to be a member of a group on there. I suspect knowing me there will be lots of pictures of cats, food and exotic locations! Will be interesting to see what kinds of things I choose to photograph and what the other members of the group post.

    Looking forward to seeing all your photos. Having done two years already, I’ve decided to concentrate on one *good* photo a week & use blog to record how I took/edited it, interspersed with the stuff I take round & about on the phone etc!

    And learn how to edit them on nexus!

    Grainne - I am doing this, but via blipfoto (http://www.blipfoto.com/sheilmcn). Thanks for making me do something I’ve been thinking about for a while.

    Hi Grainne
    Glad to see you exploring your talents with photography. I look forward to finding an insight into some of those ‘exotic’ worlds you visit.

    Flickr is one of the most interesting and revealing social networks I think, in terms of how SNs work, anyway. I started to write about Flickr a while ago now, and especially how users attempt to develop the ‘interestingness’ value of their photos - and achieve that holy grail, the ‘Explore’ photo. I look forward to reading how you find it, too.

    Cheers

    Phil
