Hola Mis Amigas!
I am jetting off to Lexington, Kentucky today to visit my feisty 87 year-young madre and then onto Tipp City, Ohio on Wednesday to visit Paul’s parents. I may or may not have reliable Internet connectivity and may or may not be allowed to take my laptop with me. My suitcase is already full with boots and challenge wear! Not sure I can convince Paul to make room for my laptop in his carry-on.
With that said, I might be out of the net so to speak for a few days. But will be participating in a month-long Instagram Challenge with a few of my blogger buddies and wanted to invite you to join the fun.
Each day in December you take a picture that represents TO YOU the word assigned for that date on the chart below. Post your picture to Instagram and add the hashtag #instaalbum2014. By tagging your pictures, they will all be linked to an album where the pictures of other participants are collected and displayed. It should be interesting to see everyone’s interpretation for the word of the day.
Here’s the chart:
If you don’t have a free Instagram account already, it is easy to sign up for one. Click here to get your account. You can also add the Instagram app to your smart phone so you can take pictures and upload them while you are out and about.
And Instagram has some neat features that allow you add filters to enhance your photographs. You can also take photos with your smart phone camera and then access them through Instagram.
Here is my picture for today, December 1. The word is BRIGHT. I chose a picture of my granddaughter Cadence wearing bright pink rain boots seated in front of a bright pink hearth at a boutique in Ruidoso, New Mexico. She is “reading” a real estate magazine and warming by the fire. The chair in the foreground is a bright orange. But the brightest part of this picture is my love for my baby Cady.
She is clever, funny and very intelligent. Cady is BRIGHTNESS personified. In my humble opinion.
See how differently the same picture looks with different filtering effects added? Fun, yeah?
So grab your smart phone and get started snapping images for the Instagram Challenge. Remember to add the hashtag #instaalbum2014 to your pics so I can find and enjoy them, too. Can’t see what you come up with!
Hugs and sticky kisses,
