I can’t believe that it’s 5 years ago that I started my photo of the day challenge ‘I Saw This & Thought…’! If I’m being honest I thought it would only last for a year before I stopped. But it’s an addiction, trying to out do myself with each photo, challenging myself to take better pictures and show you what I find interesting and quirky in everyday life. The photo’s I take are not just for me, they’re for everyone and I hope I’m able to spark memories, create talking points or even just make you smile.
I’ve taken over 1,300 photos during my challenge and these are just some of them. It was hard to choose which photos to put in my montage, but I decided to just go with the flow and pick some of my favourite and most popular pictures. You can see all of my photos on my Instagram page, where I continue to post my daily pictures.
Each photo has its own background story to tell and I know exactly where I was when I took each one, it’s almost like looking back at family photos, these pictures remind me of certain times in my life; happy memories, sad memories or even a time I just want to forget! But at the end of it all I love taking photo’s and my challenge now is to never stop, but to continue and see where it takes me; an exhibition? A book? Watch this space!
Oh and if you’d like to buy any of my prints they’re available at my Folksy shop here!
