March Photo A Day

I've been doing Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day challenge almost every month since I discovered it last July. It's a fun way to play around with photography - sometimes I share great photos, sometimes it's small snapshots of my life, and sometimes it's just something normal, and I play around with filters and effects. I try to take a photo specifically for the prompt, but if life gets busy, or I already have the perfect photo snapped and sitting on my phone, I will use previous photos. (As my friends can attest, I almost always have my phone in my hand, and I snap a lot of photos of random things.) I haven't shared my photos on my blog for a while, so I thought I'd share my March collection.

This was the set of prompts for March:

And here are the photos that I used:

1 - Something Beginning with "L" (Laura!)
2 - I made this (diy bleach dyed tshirt) (tutorial coming soon!)
3 - Key

4 - Lucky (to live the life that I do!)
5 - Under (construction) 
6 - Chair

7 - Fear (I am their Overlord - they shall fear me!) (Jk, I swear I’m very nice!)
8 - Favourite (love these shoes so much!) 
9 - Faceless self portrait (Names of SU graduates in Die Burger newspaper)

10 - I want… Dessert. 
11 - Important (Family - say hi to my brother !) 
12 - In the distance (Table Mountain from Durbanville Hills winery)

13 - Sound (Street Soiree vibes)
14 - Tasty (Graduation dinner at Apprentice - seriously the best tasting thing I’ve had in ages)
15 - Explore (beach adventures!)

16 - 9 o’clock (morning walk through Stellenbosch ) 
17 - Green 
18 - Shoes

19 - A sign (the BEST kind of street sign)
20 - Clean (finally got rid of the mountain of stuff that was living on the foot of my bed) 
21 - Working (Or not. Public holiday, woohoo!) 

22 - About you - PhD Chemist // Red wine enthusiast // Blogger // Stellenbosch lover // Loyal friend // Forever Whimsical
23 - What you do for fun (hang out with these two crazy ladies!)
24 - Up 

25 - In my drawer (Nothing - camping out at an extra desk in another office while our office is being repaired for flood damage)
26 - Something you did (Coffee break from working on script revisions) (Yes, it was an odd day for a science student)
27 - Pair 

28 - In the mirror 
29 - Goodnight (view from my bed)
30 - Relax (Frozen Margeritas at Fat Cactus)
31 - Stuff (More birthday goodies :) Yay!)
