Made In Scotland made a great suggestion for the next "5 on the fifth" - the idea is to offer some suggestions for those who want to take part but are unsure what to photograph. So... you can either take 5 pictures of anything that happens to you on the 5th of October or perhaps go for these 5:
1. The morning view from your bedroom window
2. The first person you meet on the day
3. Your favourite piece of art in your home
4. A treasured possession
5. A self portrait
I hope that these suggestions will inspire you to take part this month. You don't need a fancy camera, a mobile phone will be sufficient. If you are looking for a place to store your images, you can create photo folders via Hotmail or Google (called Picassa) for free.
I find the best way to follow blogs with varied and regular postings (like mine!) is to use a blog reader site. Google reader is good and so is this one:
It allows you to collect all of your blogs together in one place and receive emails as they are updated (if you choose to receive them).
