Noticing Texture: September’s Photo-a-Day Invitation

September arrives on our doorstep tomorrow and announces the unofficial end of summer. There’s something about the way Sssss roll off the tongue that suggests a texture that you can feel if you pay enough attention.  This month, for the September photo-a-day challenge, you are invited to notice texture in your world and capture it in photographs.  There are no rules–you are in charge in determining whether your photo fits the category!

Take a picture each day that captures the spirit and feeling of the texture and post it to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Flickr using the hashtag #sdawpphotovoices.  (You can post anywhere—if you want others to be able to follow your photos, Instagram and Twitter are best!) For more information about posting click here.  At the end of each week let’s add an additional challenge:  curate your pictures from the week and select one to highlight.  You might post it on your blog along with some musings about why you selected it.  If you don’t have a blog of your own, you have a couple of choices—you can create a blog (be sure to share it with us by including your blog address in the comments here—or better yet, tweet it using the hashtag #sdawpphotovoices) or you can post to the SDAWP Voices blog.

September 1-8:   smooth

September 8 or 9: reflect on your week and share your thinking and picture (or collage) on the link up

September 9-15:  scratchy

September 15 or 16:  reflect on your week and share your thinking and picture (or collage) on the link up

September 16-22:  scaly

September 22 or 23:  reflect on your week and share your thinking and picture (or collage) on the link up

September 23-30:  silky

September 30:  reflect on your week and share your thinking and picture (or collage) on the link up

As an extra invitation, at the end of the month, pick your five favorites to inspire a bit of writing or art or something else you want to make.  Be sure to share your creativity and what you discover through the process.

What will you find to photograph as you explore the texture in your world?  Join us…for a day, a week, or the entire month!
