Yesterday I took part in the ADAY.org global photo challenge about using “the power of photography to create, share and inspire perspectives on daily life – today and tomorrow.” People from all over the globe captured moments of their life yesterday and these images will all eventually be part of an online gallery and book with the goal of documenting what life was like around the world on this one day.
I captured everything with my iPhone and Hipstamatic. Photographer Star Rush inspired me to use black and white as she says, there is an “unrealness” to black and white. “This is not life. It’s a photo of it, a recollection.”
In all, I took about 300 photos and had to narrow that down to 10 to submit for the project. The hardest part! To see the 10 photos I contributed, go to my ADAY profile page.
But here’s more of a glimpse into our day yesterday. We did lots of pretty average, everyday things like the school run, the laundry, running errands in Oxford, having a coffee in Starbucks, and spending time at the playground. The weather didn’t disappoint by giving us the full spectrum of English weather. Rain, sun, wind, hail, and thunderstorms.
And I managed to capture proof of all our lives yesterday.
