Ten on Ten: June 2014

Another month for my new photography challenge called Ten on Ten has passed. Rebekah Gough over at her lovely blog A Bit Of Sunshine, started this back in January 2008 after receiving her first DSLR for her birthday.

Rebekah says “The project has since grown to be a fun and interactive way for blogger’s from all around the globe to document a snap shot of their lives too, once a month on the tenth taking a photo an hour for ten consecutive hours. Finding life and beauty in the ordinary things of our day to day! To participate simply visit the blog on the tenth of the month and add your set to the linky party so that all can check out your day! Add a button to your side bar too and support the project!”

Now I must admit, I don’t follow the rules 100%. I didn’t take a photo on the hour, every hour for ten hours. Basically I selected 10 photos I had taken over the course of the day and used these. I still wanted them to show the simplicity of the lives we lead, and how the small and mundane things can actually be beautiful in themselves. I also intend to highlight these slightly differently to the way I normally would on the blog, and I’m going to challenge myself to only shoot black and white images.

  • Hi hi! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog! What a great idea to process all of your images in B+W. These are great! I love the lines and negative space. (And for the record, I don’t really do a photograph on the hour, either…I’m not organized enough for that! But I approximate! On the hour-ish?)ReplyCancel
