Scenes from our Sunday

Scenes from our Sunday

I don’t seem to have been picking my camera up as much as I’d like recently and although I’m pretty sure my hard-drive is enjoying the break, I’m sad that I’ve been missing stuff and I need to change that.

During October I’m guesting over at Living Arrows which is a great motivator to start thinking creatively again and I also decided to join the #1day12pics link up this weekend. Technically Saturday was the actual day, but as I spent nearly all day in the basement of the Science Centre in Winchester, I decided to take photos on Sunday instead when we were all at home together.

I always try and remind myself that the everyday can be very routine and dull to us, but it’s often what is intriguing to other people. Those little windows into our lives that show our similarities and differences.

There’s a similar photo project which runs on the 10th of each month (next Saturday) over at Rebekah Gough’s blog and I think I might jump on that too, I found as yesterday progressed I got more and more into the swing of taking photos and was happier with the results…

I always try to do these projects but the lack of any usable light puts me off OR I totally forget and only do the first 3 pictures 😉
I love that photo of Theo being carried off upstairs, gorgeous xxx

That’s so funny, guess which photo didn’t nearly make the cut? 😉

That’s the other thing I have to get better at… self-censoring.

I love 1day12pics – I don’t always manage to finish it, usually because there’s no light or real life takes over, but I did mash it up with wwim12 this Saturday and I think I may have counted slightly past 12! It’s a great excuse to just take pictures of random things isn’t it and I love your snapshot of a Sunday 🙂

Fab photos, and definitely a good idea to take #1day12pics on Sunday instead. I tried Saturday, but didn’t really manage to even get the ones when I was at home! Rubbish.

Was lovely to meet you on Saturday. Hope you enjoyed it.

I love the 1day 12 pics projects, and you’re right – it’s so interesting to get a glimpse of other people’s lives. I keep meaning to give this a go but never do!

This is a beautiful collection of photos. 🙂

Love these photos, Clare. Often think I should do the 12 photos on day challenge but I worry I wouldn’t have enough interesting photos!

Alice Project: Wanderlust October 6, 2015 - 12:46 pm

Such stunning photos #LivingArrows

Baby Isabella October 6, 2015 - 5:39 pm

Wow! What a challenge. It’s lovely to take photographs and you are very talented and manage to capture your family beautifully. We’re not that good at photography!! Love the one with you and the bump! #PointShoot x

Lovely pictures, the atmosphere is so warm and cozy, I love it.

Lovely photos! Such a nice idea to take 12 photos over 1 day. A glimpse into the lives of others. So happy to have discovered your blog – it’s fab! x

I love these photos – I think that they are so much more natural when you take every day activities – one day you will look back at the one of Theo being carried up the stairs and marvel that he was so small…

so lovely to see a snapshot of your life Clare, I think you’re right what is mundane or normal to us is so interesting to others! I might share some simple stuff from around our lives too on the blog, such a lovely idea. Lizzie xo
