#febphotoaday – A Month in Instagram Photos

This month I decided to participate in the #febphotoaday challenge on Instagram. I started a little late on Day 5, but I have since gone back and completed the first four days to finish up the month of February. I have never done a monthly, weekly, or daily challenge like this and I actually really enjoyed it. Some of my photos were (much) better than others, but either way, I still had fun. It forced me to capture a part of my daily life for a whole month and to find something creative or artistic in my usual activities.  I may do one in March as well :)

This is the chart I used for each day.

Photo of The Week, Week 10


On our way home from Santa Rosa. This spot looked so serene, I just had to roll down the window and snap a shot!

Photo of The Week, Week 8 (Sake Bomb)

This is my cat, Sake. Sometimes we call him Sake Bomb.

Photo of The Week, Week 7 (Angry Birds)

This goose was hungry. And by the looks on his face, he was going to eat me if I didn’t give him more bread. This is why large birds scare me.

Photo of The Week, Week 6

There were so many beautiful flowers in Monterey, but this one was my favorite!
