Instagram Week

One of the things I want to do in the new year is to participate in Photo A Day at FatMumSlim.


Chantelle is a blogger from Australia, and I don't recall how I stumbled on her blog.  In any case, it's kind of fun.  I intended to start in December, but then the holidays had me so distracted I wasn't able to keep up with it.  Basically, you check to see what the daily prompt is, then post your picture somehow.  You can post to Facebook, Tweet your photo, post to Instagram...there are a variety of ways to join in.  You can read about it right here.

Personally, I was finding it cumbersome to have to check the website every day, and that made it harder to keep daily participation up.  Then, I noticed some code on her site that allowed me to have the prompts added to my iPhone.  This works for iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Mac and PC.  Cool!  Now all I have to do is look at my calendar, and the prompt is right there!  That was all I needed to become a daily user.  I've been posting my images to Instagram under my username of "Threecatsranch".

Anyway . . . all of that to say that I thought I'd share the first week with you.  Maybe I'll decide to share my Instagram week every week.  Keep in mind that these images aren't going to win any photography contests.  I sort of like the casual style of snapping pictures with my phone however.  So, here goes.  I'll put the prompt and the date above each image.

Week of January 1, 2013 through January 8, 2013
(Yeah, that's more than a week, but I only just now thought to post them.)

(New pedicure)



Jan. 3--Heart

Jan. 5--Movement 
(Mike takes off on the ATV he was trying to fix.  Yes, it was cold.)





Jan. 6--Mine
(I posted this one late.  It's my Amish doll.  
I was working on my Amish quilt at the time, and this is the first thing I thought of.)

Jan 8--Something that begins with "T"
(What else?)

Neat, Barbara. The decorations with the ribbon in the glasses really caught my eye when you put it up a while back. Very clever, easy and yet so so pretty. Mike looks positively frozen on the ATV--yikes !~!

Ooo, it does look cold! It's forecast to be 80* here today and over 100* tomorrow!

Better late than never (that would be me)...great pics...this looks like fun - I just joined in...I was in a group for 2012 to take a photo a day - it was fun...I didn't keep up but took many more pictures than I normally would...I like the "prompts" idea with this one! Thanks for sharing!

I think I follow you on instagram! I love your Amish doll. I just helped Joc made a doll for Ellie -- it was such fun! Your pedi looks great -- I haven't had one in ages -- I miss them! The right foot is real sensitive--and the techs don't like working with it because of all the scars and I don't blame 'em! :)

Fun shots. I've been doing a photo a day, but haven't been posting them anywhere.
