I have to say September was by far the most difficult month for me with this challenge. There were quite a few words that I would get stuck on for days. I am just hoping it was a temporary funk. I have been doing this challenge for 5 years now and I would hate for the inspiration to be waning! The list for October clearly has a theme and I am bummed that the 31st doesn’t have to do with Halloween. The creator of this list isn’t from America so that probably has something to do with it. Not sure how popular Halloween is in other parts of the world.
In this post you will find the challenge list, some ideas for each day’s prompt and then the list with it’s corresponding hashtags so you can use those on Instagram, Facebook, & Twitter if you would like. If you need a refresher on how to play/where to post your pictures click here. If you would like to see my pictures from September you can find them in my September Photo A Day album. Happy picture taking!!
