Camera And Photography Linky Party | Whims And Fancies

 

Wandering Camera is an idea that came to me quite suddenly and I thought it would be a great way to involve all of you.  As you already know, I love seeing the world through my camera lens.  I really enjoy taking photos of foreign lands, old cities, civilizations and ruins.  Nature also provides me with endless opportunities – light reflecting off mountains, wild flowers at the foothills, the night sky, flowing waterfalls, the stillness of a forest, just to name a few.

I also take just as many photos of everyday life.  It is a rare day when I haven’t taken at least one photo, suspending a moment of life.  This year I decided to continue on that note and officially take one photo per day for 365 days.  It is based on an idea that has been circulating for a few years now.

This year, most of my photos are going be about journalling everyday life. I am letting my camera wander and direct the photos I take.  I am often surprised by how much more I see this way.  I am hoping to be creative in taking photos around my house and also looking to learn more about the area where I live.

You also already take photos and share them on your blog posts.  They range from your creative projects, vacation photos, family visits, walks in your neighbourhood and your daily musings.  I love seeing those photos and reading about them.

Past Links With Photography Tips

 

 

I invite you to join me by linking up to the Wandering Camera event.  You don’t have to take a photo per day like me, but you can use the link-up excuse to push yourself past your comfort zone.  You can be creative with the settings, use low light to your advantage and reacquaint yourself with your camera.  Every photo is special because it captures a passing moment.

 

After a lot of thought I decided to make Wandering Camera a monthly event.  That way we get a lot of time to play with our cameras.

 

On the first Thursday of every month I will share my photos from the previous month. The link-up will start with that post.

I will try to include a tutorial on photography as well.

You can add any number of links to your posts from the previous month.  The posts should have photos in them, with a story or anecdote. Your project photos (quilting, sewing, painting, knitting, etc.) are most welcome.  You can also write a new post to link up.  Please do not link up anything older than posts from the previous month, they will be removed.

Please include the badge or a text link back to this site on each post that you link up.  You can also add the badge to your blog. I am happy either way as long as you link back :-)

** Linked posts not including a link back will be removed in fairness to other participants. **

 

Here is a little badge for you to share on your page.  Please invite others to participate.
