March Photo of the Day

There is something hopeful about March,

something benevolent about the light,

and yet wherever I look snow

has fallen or is about to fall, and the cold

is so unexpected, so harsh,

that even the spider lily blooming

on the windowsill seems no more

than another promise, soon to be broken.

It is like a lover who speaks

the passionate language of fidelity, but

when you look for him, there he is

in the arms of winter.

— Linda Pastan




MARCH-photoaday-Ma-and-GrandyLast month’s photo of the day attempts where hit or miss… but for the most part I had fun and I liked taking the pictures, and in a few exceptions going back into my archives to find them. All pictures have been take with my cell phone, unless noted.

So what are the rules? Glad you asked


Playing photo-a-day couldn’t be easier. It really couldn’t. Here’s how to play:
Grab your camera or phone or photo-taking-device.
Look at the monthly list to find the prompt for the day. {The number corresponds to the date of the month}.
Now you’ve taken a picture, it’s time to share it. This is the fun part. You can share to whichever social media platform you like, for me I like Facebook and Instagram best, oh and Twitter too. Make sure you add the hashtag #FMSphotoaday to your caption so people can find you, and others know what you’re doing.


Instagram: Just upload your photo, and add a caption and the hashtag #FMSphotoaday and then share.
Facebook: There are a few options here. You can simply share on your own personal page, among your own friends. Or you can upload to FatMumSlim’s page wall,
or to the FMS Photo A Day Facebook group. You can join it here: Now that Facebook has hashtags, simply add the hashtag #FMSphotoaday when you share your photos and you’ll be able to see which of your friends are playing along too. It’s cool!
Blog: If you have a blog, you could share each day or do a wrap up of all the photos at the end of the month.
Tumblr: Add your daily photos to your Tumblr feed.
Flickr: You can get their app and share your photos there, or upload on their web version. We also have a photo a day group
Twitter: You can share on Twitter by uploading the photo and sharing the hashtag #FMSphotoaday.

June Photo Challenge

For months I have been seeing people doing photo challenges or photo-of-the day things… and I’ve always wanted to do it, but it seemed like I would be starting at the middle of it or some of the prompts lefts me asking, “what??!! So I on June 1st. I just so happened to come across another photo challenge with the prompt, “B is for…” and I thought to myself, “girl you can totally do this”… the only problem was I was having a days long brain fart and couldn’t find anything… until I looked at my super adsorbs salt and pepper shakes… I’m mean come on they are lady bugs …

So back to when I was on integral I say the hash tag #fmsphotaday… and goggled it… and it took me to this website, and my first though was that it was a weight loss blog cause I read it as fat Muslim…(in all fairness I didn’t have on my contacts) Then once I put my contacts on and realized it’s fat mum slim…. my bad…lol

As time went out, I got more creative and started thinking out of the box….. I’m looking forward to next month’s challenge

It’s super easy to get involved… read how to play, follow the prompts and get clicking….

All of these photos except for #5 and # 15 were taken by me with my cell phone camera
