March Photo Challenge

Here's how to play:

♥ Starting on March 1st take a photo each day with inspiration from the prompt. For example prompt 1 is 'up', so take a photo looking up. Or of the word 'up'. Or something that lifts your mood 'up'. It it totally up to you how you want to interpret it.

♥ Once you've taken your photo you can share it on Instagram, Facebook {on your own profile or business page}, Twitter, Flickr, your blog, Pinterest, Tumblr or even just keep them in a folder on your desktop. If you're sharing on Twitter or Instagram add the hashtag #Marchphotoaday so others can find your photos too.

Note: For day 20 you'll see that it says 'before / after'. Again, you can interpret this however you like. I thought it would be cool for people to use an app like picframe to show two photos in one. It could be a meal before eating and the plate after. It could be anything! If you don't have any iPhone or don't want to buy an app - just use your imagination and either take two photos or work it into just one.

Feb Photo Challenge: Day 9: Front Door

Day 9: Front Door
This is the front door of a pharmacy that operated in the Jewish Ghetto during WW2 in Krakow. The man that ran this pharmacy, even though not Jewish, help save many lives during this time. He was the only non-Jew allowed to reside inside the Ghetto. In view of this front door was the square where the Jewish people had to wait in line to be transported to Auschwitz to the gas chambers, but many were shot on the spot in the square. 
 I took this photo on our recent holiday.

Feb Photo Challenge: Day 8: Sun

This photo was taken on our road trip holiday last September.  We had such a lovely time down at the snow then stopped for a few nights on the New South Wales coast.  Australia is such a beautiful country and perfect for a road trip.

Feb Photo Challenge: Day 6: Dinner

This is one of our favorite quick meals.  Bacon, Onion, Garlic in a chili tomato sauce.  So easy, so tasty.  We love the new free range bacon now available in most supermarkets.  Not only are the pigs happy, it tastes amazing!

Photo Challenge Day 5 - 10am

10am is normally very quiet in our house on a Sunday.  Our teenage children seem to think it is perfectly normal to sleep in til midday on a weekend and a wee munchkin loves to get up, give us a quick kiss and watch TVin solitude as he is not allowed to watch morning TV on school days.

I tend to catch up with news online and a few friends via Facebook, and Mr FF loves to catch up on the sports news, although he does not limit this activity to a Sunday.  We the ever looming Rugby season soon upon us, this mad Rugby loving Kiwi is just only beginning to gear up for his favorite season of the year!

Photo Challenge Day 4 - A Stranger

This was a hard one.  I wasn't quite sure what to photograph for a stranger.  Then I thought, well I haven't actually seen my iron for over 2 years, so here we go....... I am still trying to start a revolution - if everyone stopped ironing,  the ironed shirts would be the odd ones out!
