Hello July {Instagram Photo Challenge}

July is almost here!  July for me marks lots of things;  it’s the month where I feel like summer in the UK really begins, even if the weather doesn’t always agree 😉 it also marks the end of the school year which, for us teachers, means we have a six- week long holiday and lastly, it’s the month of my birthday 🙂DSC03371

This July, Camila from Adventitious Violet, and I are hosting an Instagram photography challenge.  We have chosen thirty one prompts for the month, one for each day; some more obvious themes and some that can be interpreted differently to allow you to be really creative.  You can join in everyday, or whenever you wish to.  It’s a great daily activity to participate in as well as being a fun way to take new photos and explore with your camera.  And, of course it’s a great way to interact with others by sharing photos and getting the chance to discover new Instagram accounts.

Each Monday in July we will be choosing our favourite photos from the week before so be sure to link up by using the hashtag #instachallengejuly2015 and by linking to mine and Camila’s Instagram accounts so we can see all of your wonderful photos.

Challenge starts on Wednesday 1st JulyINSTACHALLENGE July (1)blate-marcella

As a little bonus, for any other fellow yogis out there, I will also be working through 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene on YouTube, which is a thirty day series of yoga and it’s really amazing!

So, a month of summer, photography and yoga – who is in?!  I can’t wait to see all of your great photos 😀  What are your fun July plans?

  1. haha I love this! Damn it’s making me want to go change my post and also add that photo of us 😀 And oh my gosh I’m just finishing 30 days of yoga with Adriene, I love her soooo much! It’s a great challenge!

  2. I love instagram challenges/prompts…the bad thing though is that I need to check the theme every day before posting!! I practice yoga too and my studio runs a 30 days challenge, but in summertime I feel kind of lazy to practice every day (plus hot weather in Greece doesn’t helps either)!

    • Yay, hope you can join 🙂 I will be checking a lot too so I don’t forget all of the prompts! That’s so cool, I love the YouTube one as it’s only about 30mins per day which is achievable to fit in and I know what you mean about the weather, I go to some hot yoga classes but it’s just too warm for that at the moment!

  3. which reminds me I dont have an Instagram account, which I ‘ve been meaning to set up for a while lol 🙂
    good luck with the photo challenge, I wish I could join in, but my schedule is pretty tight for daily photos…
    enjoy your vacation and your upcoming b-day 🙂 my younger son is born in July (on the 11th), I love this month 🙂
