#YMCPhotoADay Challenge: October 2014

Grab your camera and start taking pics!

After a few months’ hiatus, the #YMCPhotoADay challenge is back!

Remember that can take your pictures with ANY camera. (I always end up using my phone.) This exercise is about starting to notice the world around you in different ways, and stretching your creative muscles. You also don’t have to participate every day — just join us when you can. (There is no way to “fail” this challenge!) We really want to see the pictures you take, please use the hashtag #YMCPhotoADay when uploading your photos to a social media platform.

If you'd like to see what everyone else is taking, check out Tagboard and search #YMCPhotoADay. All the photos posted to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Google+ with that hashtag will be aggregated into one place. (Note: if you post your photo on your personal blog or Flickr, but then link to it on one of those social networks and use the hashtag, it will still show up on Tagboard.)

Remember, if you want everyone to be able to see your photos, confirm that your Twitter or Instagram account isn't set to private, and that your Facebook or Google+ posts are set to public for that photo. Be kind and leave encouraging comments for each other on those photo posts!

Here are the prompts for October:

Happy shooting!
