Photo a Day April: Days 1 to 6

Wow, short work weeks are always the busiest!  I’m excited for lots of reasons…but the main one is I’m on holidays and visiting friends in Iqaluit!

Here I go for my next photo project with Photo-a-Day-April thanks to @FatMumSlim for putting together another amazing list of photo prompts.  I’m going to try to think-outside-of-the-box…but already in the first 6 days…I think I’ll need some more work on that aspect.  I  will post my photos every Friday! I’m excited because a couple of my friends from university are doing this too!  Michelle’s photos can be found HERE.

Day 1:  your reflection…

I was looking through some photos from my Christmas vacation…and saw the photo below… I never posted it..and love my reflection in my Aunt’s horse’s eye!

Day 2: colour…

Blue is MY favourite colour…here’s my Haliburton Teddy Bear sitting on my bed!

Day 3: mail…

…my Easter package didn’t arrive yet!(..that’s ok because Easter will last LONGER now!) But I did get the regular, bills…magazines…& coupons for my favourite clothing store(sad thing is they are IN STORE ONLY, wont’ be using those!)

Day 4: someone who makes you happy… 

* Photo taken in Cozumel, Mexico 2011 *

Kim is an amazing friend, and friends make me happy!  I’m excited that I get to spend some time visiting her while I’m in Iqaluit…. (on Wednesday, the day of the prompt…it was just 2 more sleeps until I left on my trip).

Day 5: tiny…

* Photo Taken April 2009: At Crater Lake, Auyuittuq National Park *

On Thursday, I was flipping through photos and found the one above…taken from a trip to the Arctic Circle in Auyuittuq National Park.  We were walking across Crater Lake.  It struck me that those people are so tiny…and natural landscape we live in is so majestic.

Day 6: lunch…

Lunch today…plane food… on my hour flight from Pang to Iqaluit! It wasn’t as appetizing as it looks…yahoo for ‘soggy’ sandwiches, I think I prefer the toasted sandwich that has the potential to be a bit frozen on the inside over a SOGGY non-toasted sandwich.  (that’s just a difference depending on which company you fly with!)

March Photo A Day Challenge: Days 19-31

…well I made it through most of the month with getting the photos done on time. But then after 2 weeks of travelling for work–I fell off the grid.  After getting home, I put my camera away…and didn’t take many photos.  So I had to play ‘catch-up’ with the last 12 photo prompts.  I must admit these photos weren’t all taken on the ‘right’ day…but I finished the challenge.  As my mum taught me, “you always have to finish what you start!”.  It was a really FUN challenge to take part in, thanks Chantelle from Fat Mum Slim for putting together the March Photo a day Challenge.

Here’s the list of all of March’s Photo Prompts…

Here is where you can find my other March Photo-A-Day-Challenge photos: Days 1 to 5, 6 to 11 and 12 to 18.

Without any further ado, here’s my last 12 photos of the month… (only 2 days late!)

Day 31: Where you relax…

That brings me to the end of my March photos… thanks again Chantelle from Fat Mum Slim for setting up this challenge.  She’s announced the next one and is hosting ‘Photo a day April‘…

… and I’m totally doing this again.  I’ve really enjoyed taking a photo each day…and the idea of having a fun prompt helps with the creativity aspect!

For the month of April I’m going to post my photos once a week every Friday. I’m going to TRY my best to take EACH photo on the actual given day… here’s to another month of taking photos! Feel free to join along in the photography fun…let me know where I can find YOUR photos.

March Photo A Day Challenge: Days 6-11

This month I’ve joined the March-Photo-A-Day-Challenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim!  Click on the link to see my photos for Days 1 to 5.  It was a busy week, but here are my last week’s photos…

Day 6: 5pm…

(well a few minutes after 5pm…)

Day 8: Window…

Day 11: Someone I talked to today…

(*taken a few weeks ago, but saw Nicole at the airport!)

This week looks just as crazy… I’m on the road for work, leaving the Eastern Arctic and heading to the far-far-Western Arctic!  Should be a great time…I’ve never been to the Western Arctic…but hear that it’s way colder on the west side,  and potential for blizzards and weather delays for flights greatly increases!  But that’s just part of the adventure of travelling in the Arctic!

March Photo A Day Challenge: Days 1-5

During the month of October, I participated in a 30 Day Photo Challenge…  It was so much fun to stretch myself creatively and I found a lot of new blogs to read.  One of these blogs was The Hemborg Wife’s Blog (go check her out!) a few days ago she was talking about doing a new photography challenge for the month of March.  This Photo-A-Day-Challenge was created by another blogger Fat Mum Slim…it should be a fun month of photos!

Day 1: Up…

Day 2: Fruit…

Day 3: Your Neighbourhood…

Day 4: Bedside…

Day 5: A Smile…

…I’ll be posting my photos every Monday in March!  I’m a bit late, because I used up my 3gigs of internet this month.  Decided to byte the bullet and purchase another gig…last night was too much with slower than dial-up speeds..and no ability to surf the net, or blog! Gotta luv when you purchase 1 gig for $31.50…but I suppose that’s a totally different rant/post!
