First of the Month

My subjects are these sycamore trees located next to the tennis courts.  (I don't know about anyone else, but I'm having a lot of problems with my photos disappearing or only half appearing; it's happened on several post on different blogs.  Here, I've actually posted the same photo twice, once I didn't enlarge it.)  

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 or so, to give everyone a chance to post. Let's see if this flies. (Please link back to this blog, thanks.)

Go take more photos,


  1. I got to see your picture! Glad, even though I'm jealous of all the leaves!


  2. Looks like your spring is in full swing! Lucky Lady!

  3. oh your trees look so lovely compared to ours...we did have crocus but they are covered in snow now...

  4. I had a bit of trouble with Mr. Linky yesterday but it sorted out. Wondered what was going on with your photo. Thought you might be just holding a place until you had a chance to take your FOTM shot. Shows what I know about photography.

    Anyway, your sycamores are making big promises for spring!

  5. I remember when you first posted this photo and launched the first of the month. Looks like the spring is finally kicking in

  6. Well, it definitely looks green in Murrieta!

  7. I love these trees. We have lots of them lining the creek behind our home, and I especially like the huge leaves.
    Your pictures came through just fine.
    Have a happy week Jan.

  8. Finally some buds are appearing on the trees. This is my first time posting a photo to your group. I found it mid January and have taken a photo each month from the same spot. Today I finally got my act together to join your linsky on time! Hopefully next mth I pull it together too. :)

  9. Hi Jan,
    Beautiful shot! I wish we had leaves, but not yet. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  10. Interesting concept for a meme. Will try and think of a subject worthy of this kind of documentation.

  11. Great idea; I have choosen nature :)
    Have a nice week!

  12. Hi Jan!
    This is an exciting challenge and I am joining if a bit late. ;-)
