September 2014 #1day12pics

This is my first foray into #1day12pics. This months chosen day was 6th September.  #1day12pics is organised by Michelle at My Creative Photography and  Emma Davies at Photography for blogs.  The idea is to take a photo every hour throughout the day, and share (with the hashtag #1day12pics) social media.

This is my 6th of September.  All the pictures were taken on my i-phone 4s between about 10.15am and 9.30pm

Despite being a very poor photgrapher, but a photographer with a desire to take much better pictures, I loved taking part in this day.  To see some much better photographs have a look at the wonderful selection here.

    A great set of photos. I particularly like the young sailors chatting. What I love about this project is the little window it gives into other peoples lives. Hope you’ll join in again. There is also a #10on10 which is both more manageable and easier to remember – Ha!

      Thanks Clare. I’m naturally nosey so I agree a peek into other peoples lives is fascinating. I’ll keep my eyes open for the #10on10

    I disagree – I don’t think you’re a poor photographer. You’ve got a great eye, some fantastic viewpoints, and different takes on familiar subjects. Love the photo of the poppies especially.
