My Life. In Pictures- Session 3

The purpose of this photo challenge project is to encourage you to pick up your camera and start capturing details of your life. This project should also serve as a way to look at what others are finding to shoot and will hopefully keep you inspired to look for more moments in your life you wouldn't always think to capture with your camera.

My Life. In Pictures #3 challenge will start on November 16 and run through November 20.

The assignment will be: The five senses!

Thanks to Naomi at Delhi Bound for suggesting it. I have been so busy and didn’t feel the energy to come up with some great topics. If you have not been to her blog, please take some time to check it out. She has the coolest experiences and I love reading about her life in India. I think we can have so much with this! It will be fun to see how everyone interprets this and what you find to share.

Monday: Sight
Tuesday: Hearing
Wednesday: Touch
Thursday: Taste
Friday: Smell

New on Challenge #3… I’m trying to mix it up a little bit here, and will be giving away a prize at then end of the week. Now, I’m not rich- so it’s not much! I just wanted to be able to make it fun and have a little incentive for playing along with us. Each day you enter I will count as one entry. At the end of the week I will count all of our entries and choose a random winner for a $10 gift card to Target- my other love.

The other day I won a flip camera on Mama Kat’s blog. I don’t know how long it will take me to get the camera in the mail, but if I have it by then, I might even get the nerve to break it in and create my first vlog entry when announcing the winner!!! How fun would that be???

The point is... be creative! You can interpret these "assignments" any way that works with you! I want you to have fun and enjoy looking at Your Life. In Pictures.

Here are a few details, but please feel free to email me with any more questions you might have!

* How does the challenge work?
I will post the challenge "assignments" for the week and you pick up your camera to capture a photo that meets the assignment. Post the picture on your blog (or Flikr) . You are welcome to write a story with your photo or just include the photo if you would like. There will be a Mr. Linky for you to to fill out with your name and the URL from that assignment's post. (Mr. Linky is a link hosting program for websites. It allows blogs to host all of the links to participants in the challenge. Your job is to sign the Mr. Linky each day you participate so we can all view your post and photo. )

* Who can participate?
Everyone! You can be a beginner or a professional. It will be interesting to see all the different styles of photography.

* Do I have to have a blog to participate?
No. You can use your Flickr account and post a link to a picture from your account. Remember- you can get a Flickr account for free!

* Do I have to participate every day of the week?
No. You can participate all 5 days or just one. It is up to you.

* Does my photo have to be edited?
No, but you are welcome to edit it if you like. If you are interested in some free editing sites, check out Picasa or Picnik. They are lots of fun to play around with your photos, and did I mention FREE?

* Can I link to your blog?
Yes- please do! If you are participating in My Life. In Pictures. please help us spread the word. The more people who know about this and participate, the more photos we will have to inspire us and the more fun it will be for all of us! You can place the button in your side bar or post it in your blog. Share the love!

* What next?
You are encouraged to use the Mr. Linky and visit the blogs of all the participants and see Their Life- In Pictures!
