January’s Photo-a-day Project

For those of you who don’t know, I have been participating in the January Photo-a-Day Challenge on Instagr.am.  I know it’s not Instagr.am exclusive, but that was the venue I picked.  I joined it a little bit late (on Day 6) & I’ve missed a day or so in there, but I’m so glad that I did.  It’s been a really fun thing to be a part of each day and I’ve come to really look forward to each day’s challenge.  Thank you to Frak for sending me the list!  I still check your text every day to see what the day’s challenge is, haha.

This was the list for January 2012’s challenge:

I figured that since you can only see someone’s Instagr.am photo stream from your iPhone or iPad (unless someone posts the link to Twitter, Facebook, etc.), I’d share my photos that I took for the challenge.  They’re all thumbnails, so click to enlarge if you’re so inclined.  And before I go, here’s the link/list to February’s Photo-a-Day Challenge.  Thank you to Fat Mum Slim for creating these lists.  I don’t know who you are, but you rock.

If you want to find me on Instagr.am, my username is Colleen84.  If you hold your mouse over each thumbnail, it will give you the theme of the day and the original comment I made with each photo.  And now I humbly present to you, my submissions for January’s Photo-a-Day challenge:
