The Official Photo-a-Day for July, 2017




Rules:
Look around you.
Take some photos.
Choose one photograph and upload it into the internet.
Do it for every day of the July.
End of rules.

All cameras are welcome. Try something you haven't done before, there's many, like macro or street photography.
Shooting digital is almost instant for posting online, and mobile phone cameras are now able to produce pretty good work (and it's going to be the camera you'll have with you always).
Potatoshop does fix a bad photo, however this is to better your technique.
Prep work is imperative as inspiration will not present itself every day; let's face it you will run out of time and ideas ('cos life, lol).

Upload to the likes of flickr (the basic account is free), if you keep the uploaded photos to 800 pixels on the largest side then you'll easily get all 31 photos displayed with the free account. Create a new set and call it "Photo-a-Day July 2017", "PAD2017" or even "PAD2k17" and I'll link it to your name below. Or whatever.

I was wondering when this thread would go up! Obviously I'm in. No promises as to quality though (so no change there then).

Great!
Had been meaning to start the thread the last week or so, but work & life of late has been verrrrry busy (after knackering my ankle at the start of the year, it's been difficult to catch up). Also haven't done much photography for myself for aaages, and haven't used a film camera for longer.

Sorry to hear about your ankle. Things have been very busy for us too, and I haven't used my camera very much either, so it'll be nice to have a bit of impetus in July!

Nice work. We're away for the weekend so I'll catch up in a couple of days.

Nice B&W there.

Day two of Lego Antman adventures, I'm not sure I can last a month with this theme.

Liking the Lego idea clockity! And nice work Boink! and fodder.

Here is my catch up; all quick snaps so far, not a stellar start to the month...

July 1st 2017 - Aunt/nephew affection


July 2nd 2017 - TIRED

I was so tired after a big weekend that this snap from in bed was all I could manage.

Haa, my couple of ideas from this morning were guff, and I left it until half past seven before heading out for a photo.

Then I found my D7000 had no memory card in it, so I had to rely on the D200 infrared conversion as the light was fading...

Still, this'll do.

A mouse a day would be hard, but the bird species a day went well last year.

No mouse today, and wasn't sure how a photo of the trout I caught would be welcomed so here's some more birds.

And no, I'm not doing a different bird a day this year
