I was looking through my Instagram feed yesterday and really enjoyed looking at old photos I had forgotten I had taken. If you’re on Instagram too you can find me as Midsommereve.
I thought this grouping actually worked pretty well as one!
Its that time again when I think about next month’s challenge.
For anyone who follows this blog you will already know that I have been preparing for my December Photo Challenge this year by making my own Christmas themed challenge.
It had to be done.
And it can be found here.
I happened to post it on Instagram #thechristmaslist and it looks like people will be doing it there too! Because of that I then I made a facebook page called ‘The Christmas List’ for people to share links to their photos. Social Media blows my mind sometimes.
Why A Christmas List?
I wanted to do something Christmassy because I enjoy the feeling of Christmas. For me it has always been positive and I get happy glaze just thinking about it.
I think it can be celebrated (or at least aspects of it) irrelevant of your personal beliefs on different levels. Who can resist a holiday that celebrates positivity, giving, generosity and happiness? Whether you choose to participate in religious or commercial aspects is entirely up to you.
I tried to create a list that had some easy(er) photos (we are all pretty busy this time of year) and some prompts that take a little bit more thought and provide more of a challenge. I also challenge anyone non-Christmassy to undertake the challenge interpreting the challenges in non-Christmassy ways.
I am looking forward to seeing people’s interpretations. I haven’t done a list before so I am a little bit excited! Just adds to the Christmas Spirit.
I decided to make a facebook page, HERE for The Christmas List as another way people can share their photos online easily. I noticed that the list is getting a few followers particularly on Instagram so people can easily leave a link to their photos through that if they like.
I don’t use Instagram as much as some people, but if I’m messing around for fun I do post some photos. Its usually ones that weren’t good enough and I hope that the filters will help somehow. The results are varied. I thought these turned out fairly well.

The Pub at Largs Bay has really interesting architecture, especially for a Pub?!
