First of the Month



I thought I'd start a new meme called "First of the Month".  The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month.  It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine.  It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month.  I'll open the linky each month on the 1st, and leave it open for a week, to give everyone a chance to post.  Let's see if this flies.  (Please link back to this blog, thanks.)

My photo is of the sycamore trees, next to the tennis courts.  I always love the way they change with the seasons.

Go take more photos,

  7. Love it! What a great idea, Jan! Oh, are we supposed to shoot the same thing? I'm not clear on that, as we get out quite a bit!

  8. Okay, I went back and reread it. It can be wherever you are on the first of the month, right? Phew! We haven't been up to Joshua Tree National Park for nearly 9 months and I doubt we would go there once a month!

  13. Hiya Jan,

    As chance would have it, I was planning this as well. Taking so many views over the years, catalogueing them seemed a good idea.
    So glad you now force me into doing it in an organized way.

    Best wishes for the coming year.

  14. Hi Jan--saw your new meme over at Pamela's Dust Will Wait. It's a good one and I was looking for something new that would jump start my photography efforts. I signed up and am heading over to Summit Musings right now to post my January 1 photo.

    Happy New Year to you and yours, BTW.
