Most people are with their pets, as they are/would be with children, and take images of their every move. Well some do. Crazy, loving, eclectic pet owners do.
So whether you are a memory snapper or not, I challenge you to this year’s photos challenge, all about your pet(s) and you.
The goal is to document (photograph) special moments in the lives of you and your pets and to show at year’s end, how far you both/all have come.
So if you have a dog, your title would be, “The Dog and Me”. If you have a cat, your title would be, “The Cat and Me”. (In my case, my title will be. “The Pack and Me”, since I have a variety of pets who share my life.)
If you don’t already have an online sharing medium like Facebook, Flicker, or similar social media, blog, or online image galleries, now is the time to sign up for one. You will need a place to upload your images.
Set up your image gallery with the title, the date, and a brief note about what you intend to do.
And what will you be doing for this challenge?
- You’ll need to take at least one image per week, of you and/or your pet(s). You may take more than one image of one or all of you or your pet(s), but at least one per week is a must.
- Each of those images must be in accordance with one of the following 52 key words; one for each week of the year.
- Images must be taken in the calendar year 2013
- Use only one key word per week, and make sure to use all 52 key words by this time next year.
- You may use the keys words in any order.
- You may start the challenge at any time throughout the year, just so that you have it finished by the first week of January 2014.
- Upload your images with a brief description and share with your friends and family each week.
- Feel free to share links to your “stories” on the comment section of this article. Other readers may enjoy sharing your image story.
- My pet(s)
- Feeding time
- Play time
- Best Buds
- An outing
Simple images galleries will work fine, even the ones on Facebook.
At the end of the year you may find you have created quite a story and may choose to publish your images as a keepsake. Publishing you images in a tabletop book is a very simple process and can be done through various local stores or online through image printing labs.
You’ve been challenged, now get busy, and let’s see what you’ve got!
I am going to keep my project in my blog which makes it all very simple for me to add to each week. That way I can also share my blog post each week on my Facebook page.
