Alphabet Project | B is for bubbles

May 21, 2014
PODcast IMG_5314 edit

Thank you to everyone that joined the Alphabet Photography Project last week. It was great to see what you’d chosen for your letter A.

Bubbles ended up the preferred option for letter B after POD put in so much effort. She blew with such vigour it almost looked like she might explode!

How to join in 

The Alphabet Photography Project runs every Wednesday. A Linky is open from 6am that day until the following Tuesday if you’d like to share a short post (or a link to an image). There’s currently no badge but if you include a link back to PODcast I’ll share your post on Twitter and in the #alphabetphoto Google+ community.

You can share your photo in the Pinterest and Facebook groups or on Instagram (PODcast is here) too. The hashtag to use is #alphabetphoto.

Ideas for letter B

The #alphabetphoto theme can be interpreted in any way your choose. The letter B might be a photograph of a butterfly, an object that resembles the letter B or a photograph of the letter B using props. It could also be an adjective. Have a look at the letter B hints in last week’s post.

Inspiration for letter C

Here are a few ideas to get us thinking about letter C:

Cucumber, cat, CD, cherries, collage, cheese, child, clouds, camping, cars, cityscapes, churches, cathedrals, couples, candid, circles, candles, clocks, cats, celebrations, choise, close-up, clouds, cold, colours, contrasts, computers, critters, culture, curves, chandelier, crazy, curious, childhood, clean, clear, cloudy, colourful, crowded, cute.

There’s also a Pinterest board if you’re on the hunt for inspiration:

    I find bubbles hard to photograph. Think I might be getting the light direction wrong, judging by your success. Really ought to challenge myself. Not that I’m short of people wanting to help me by blowing them. Loving this linky. Thanks for hosting again.

    That photo of Pod is brilliant; the concentration on her face is immense, and she looks so sweet in her hat with her hair falling softly around the edges.

    […] May 21, 2014 thehookynook Leave a comment Beautiful. My eldest daughter is growing so quickly. It feels like only yesterday that she came into this world. Her tiny self being born with a hand placed on her cheek. Not letting out a single peep until the midwives pricked her with her vitamin K jab and even during her two weeks in S.C.B.U, she hardly made a fuss. The photo-therapy sessions, the wires coming from her, the beeping that freaked you out every time it came on…I could go on. But next month my girl turns nine. Nine! How can that be! We would’ve shared the same birthday you know. As I went into labour on my 25th birthday during my birthday BBQ! Due to being early, they stopped the labour progressing & Ellie-Louise ended up being born three days later and I love that they are so close together.  She is so funny, smart {more than she believes}, quirky, creative, caring, thoughtful, completely bonkers and beautiful.  Joining in with Charly from Podcast for this weeks Alphabet Photo Project!
