The Official Photo-a-Day for July, 2016 edition

tl:dr

I spent £700 on a Nikon D70 in 2005.
Roped in other forumites to take photos daily throughout July.
Repeat for the last ten years.


Rules:
Take photos.
Choose one photograph and upload it into the internet.
Do it for every day of the July.
If you miss a day, you will die alone.
All cameras are welcome. Don't be anal. 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).
Beardy hipsters can still use film.
Wear sunscreen.
Post production doesn't fix a bad photo. 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 2016", "PAD2016" or even "PAD2k16" and I'll link it to your name below. Or whatever.

I'm in - last year didn't work for me, I think because I was in the midst of a fairly big house move and job change...will try harder!

I've been trying to sort out some ideas for July, I'm expecting it to be a difficult time again. Hell, I'm even thinking shooting some 120 film for the month as well!

As usual I've not done any planning ahead so have no ideas as yet!

Will there be 31 photos of your missus again this time?

Ha, no. Not all 31 anyway*. It was two years ago I did a month of portraits, and I'm not restricting myself this year.


*We have a little boy now so there'll probably be a load of him

Just had delivered a sigma 18-35 1.8, so I'm in. It will push me to experiment with the lens.

Day one. Gloomy & driving rain. Not an auspicious start

Nice one.

I'm at a wedding and haven't taken a photo yet. I have had several glasses of wine though, so it might not be an auspicious start to the month.
