Photo A Day – July

I’m done with my first month of the Photo A Day challenge, and I loved it! It was a lot of fun thinking about the prompts and taking pictures every day (though I did get a bit busy and missed a few days…had to do double photo duty the next day to catch up).

I loved it so much I’m definitely going to participate for July! If you missed my original post about the Photo A Day challenge for June you can find it here. Or all the details are on the Photo A Day page as well. I’m adding all the pictures I take every day to that page, so stop by and check them out!

If you aren’t already participating, now is a great time to start! You don’t need a blog to join, just take a photo according to the prompt every day and share it somehow (Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, a blog, etc….)

If you want to follow along with my photos, my Instagram username is @practicallyfunctional (and if you don’t use Instagram you can see the photos I post there on Webstagram), and I might post photos to Facebook or Twitter every once in a while. I’ll also keep the Photo A Day page updated with all my photos, so come back every once in a while and see how it’s been going!

Here is the list of prompts for July:

Photo A Day Challenge - July

And in case you missed the June photos, here were a few of my favorites!

Day 5: Sign: I love this sign at the elementary school near us!

Day 10: Best Bit Of Your Weekend: Hanging out with the hubby and the brother!

 Day 19: Imperfect: Don’t be fooled by the pretty (i.e. staged) pics in my blog! Messy kitchen, messy craft table :-)

Day 24: On Your Mind: I absolutely love my city and how supportive they are!

Day 25: Something Cute: I think the hubs is pretty cute, all dolled up for his 1st day of work at the new job :-)

Day 30: A Friend: Erin and Doug came to visit! Played board games for two days straight!

  3. Hello Jessi,
    I linked over to your blog from “Tout It Tuesday’s” blog party. This photo challenge sounds like so much fun. I am going to start the challenge today, and after 12 photos write a blog post. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Smiles, Paula

  4. I so need to do this. I am figuring out that the only way to become a better photographer is to take LOTS of pictures. Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you tomorrow.
