Also known as the month I abandoned prompts.
I planned on doing fat mum slim's prompts, as usual, until I saw a new one based on Ann Voskamp's 1,000 gifts. I decided to do her prompts for the entire month, but, after one week, I abandoned both and just made sure I at least took a single photo every day for the remainder of August.
I really like Ann's prompts but did not like all my pictures being some combo of three. So, this is my semi-unprompted month of photos for August.
1-gifts in white
3-gifts at 10am, 1 pm and 10 pm
5-gifts today inside, outside & upside down
6-gifts in water
7-gifts in his word
