Yesterday I took part in my first #1day12pics where you take a picture roughly every hour for 12 hours, sharing the pictures on Instagram and Twitter. This is something I’ve wanted to do since reading Nice Cup of Tea’s post back in 2011 when she took pictures every 30 minutes. I had thought about doing it a couple of times a year but somehow it just never happened. However, when I read about #1day12pics on Photography for blogs during last week I knew now was the time to do it.
I’m used to taking photographs every day for my Project52 scrapbook layouts, but it was different to take so many evenly spread (ish) through one day. I didn’t trust myself to remember to take the pictures so I set an alarm on my phone to act as a trigger to look for a photo opportunity. As it was a day with no plans, my set of photographs give a great impression of what life in our house is like on an ordinary Saturday.
