How cool is this?

It's called The August Break and is the brainchild of  photographer Susannah Conway.
Here’s the plan for the August break: you simply share one photo per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you want. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, 35mm, video – with or without words – anything goes – for the whole of August. No pressure -  just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.
I'm thinking of joining, anyone else want to play along?

I don't think I could go a whole month without talking. I can hardly go an hour.

OK, hon', I can post on your blog using the real me because none of them seem to be taking wordpress entries. So, about the picture thing, I'll give it some thought and let you know.

Paula - Something new and different

Geewits - you don't have to not talk. you can talk and just add your random pic of the day...

Ian - ok, I know, Wordpress rocks... maybe I should move...

I post photos I take virtually every day - in fact my last post was a very rare exception. So it wouldn't be much of a change for me.

Wait a minute - would this mean no writing? Because I definitely wouldn't follow a rule like that.

I'm in!
I need a mental challenge that isnt too challenging. This might fit that bill. Whoo!

(and blogger isnt taking my comments; trying again from my old blogger account)

Jazz said...

SAW - no it definitely doesn't mean no writing. I means a picture a you took every day - if you want to add more it's all up to you.

Jazz said...

Rachel - yeah, it seem blogger is boycotting WP. I'm importing my blog into WP as we speak. I'm sick of this.

Hey, just posted a photo for you!

sounds like fun. at this point i'm stuck with my phone's camera. sigh...

You're asking me to not only find my battery charger, but put batteries in it, plug it into the wall, take the batteries out and get them into the camera, but then to actually remember where the camera is every single day for a month on top of all that?

Tell you what - if I ever find the remote control I'll get right to work on that next.

Just to let you know, I've had to change my blog's URL. This avatar links to the new site.
