We are nearly finished with the 1st Quarter of 2018 and heading at a rapid rate to April, which means that it’s time to announce The april themes! Time is really flying by.
For those of you new to the Day2Day project and have been thinking that you’d like to join in – there’s nothing stopping you. There is no rule that you have to start on January 1st – although, a lot of people may go back through their photos and find that they have enough to work back and start on a January page. The common ground with this project is that everyone likes taking photos! Some people wonder what the themes are all about? How do they help with my photo a day taking? Basically, they are there to give a “kick-start” to your thought process when deciding what to photograph for your daily photo. It’s amazing how the themes will open your eyes to a new perspective on your daily life. That being said – there is nothing set in stone that you have to follow the theme for each and every photo, each and every day of the year. This project is yours to decide what to do with – follow the themes each day, just for a couple of days and have other photos, or go your own way entirely. Just snap a photo each day and put them onto your weekly pages with some journaling. If you miss a photo or two, it doesn’t matter, do your week with just a few photos, and get back into the swing of taking daily pics when you can. I find it handy to have an alarm set on my phone for around 3pm daily to remind me to grab a photo before the daylight disappears if I haven’t already snapped one. This project is yours to do how you wish – it’s not a chore or with rules set in stone. The aim is to have a visual diary of daily life at the end of the year, to print, treasure and bring back wonderful memories in years to come. One of the best things about the Day2Day project is that by taking a photo each day you can improve your photography skills along the way. It doesn’t matter if you use your phone, a “point and shoot”, or a DSLR – all that matters is that you take a photo with whatever camera you have at hand.
Watch for announcements for the new themes here on the website and on the brand new closed Facebook Group Forever Day2Day Project and the pixels2Pages Facebook Group. Then share your weekly pages with us so we can encourage, support and enjoy your photos and stories each week. If you haven’t asked to join the Forever Day2Day Project closed Facebook Group, what are you waiting for? I would love to see you there.
