This month for the #1day12pics challenge I went with a theme again. It was suggested by Lauren who thought that “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” would be appropriate as I am getting married this month. It was great fun and not too hard to fit into the theme as it was the most beautiful blue sky day (which has since continued). I love this as it gives a great insight and will be a lovely reminder to me in the future of our first summer here in Trieste.
I took part using my iphone and posting on Instagram again, I did struggle a little bit to keep it to every hour but did take 12 pictures.
I thought I would share the pictures in reverse. Above is the gorgeous sunset that ended the day while we were having a bbq at our friends’ house. I am currently a little obsessed with the blue sky in the evenings. This was about 9pm and hence a big jump in the ‘hourly’ rate.
6(ish): A new necklace (worn to bbq). Who says you can’t put a little effort in, even when hanging out with friends at home? | 5(ish): Blue plastic bottle (reflection) filled with ‘frizzante’ water. | 4(ish): Two churches in Trieste which are pretty old. The one on the left is 17th century and the one on the right is 12th century. Taken while walking home. | 3(ish): Trying a new gelato flavour.
2(ish): reading in the shade. This seemed a popular book on my feed! I love this classic cover but this one from (I think) Rob Ryan is truly beautiful. | 1(ish) Shorts season! A new pair as I haven’t worn shorts in years but after the temperatures this week (a consisten 32ºC) think I will need a ton more. | 12(ish) Watching the world go buy while sitting on the pier. What better way to spend a blue sky day. | (11ish) Said blue sky.
10(ish) Laundry feels more manageable when the sky will dry it in a few hours. 9 (ish) breakfast for two with ‘borrowed’ plates (ie come with the rental). It was about the only way I could squeeze borrowed in.
I haven’t shared the 12th picture of a fan which I took on waking up. We have an old ceiling fan. I have to say I just wasn’t that happy with the picture and will probably delete it from Instagram. I suppose the one problem with Instagram (and that I have particularly found with challenges) is that you just take and share and sometimes even as you are sharing it you know it is not your ‘best’ stuff. This is also a problem I have found with my ’100 happy days’ challenge’ as what makes me happy isn’t always that photogenic. Posting on a blog allows more time for consideration while as Instagram is … instant.
What are your thoughts. Have you gone back and deleted Instagram pictures?
Also don’t forget to link up if you took part and posted on your blog or Instagram.
