Crumbs: A Photo A Day

Geetings, internet friends! Prepare yourselves for a wild ride. On February 1st, I'm embarking on a noble quest, a photographic odyssey, an attempt to take one photo a day for a month. Again. Like a moth inexplicably drawn to a particularly flammable lampshade, I'm hurtling back into the world of forced creativity and questionable camerawork – all immortalised in the questionable digital abyss known as my phone. Crumbs, as they say in this neck of the woods! 

Prepare for an avalanche of mediocrity as I document the riveting saga of... well, let's be honest, it'll probably be mostly pictures of my toaster.

Now, before you start showering me with virtual confetti and inspirational quotes about living your best life, let me clarify: I've done this before. Like, several times before. And each time, it ended with a whimper, my phone overflowing with half-eaten breakfast shots and pictures of my toes (don't ask). But this time, it's different. This time, I'm delusional enough to believe I can actually stick with it. A shorter month helps too ;) 

But, you never know, it is possible that I could succeed, and decide to continue snapping away into March and beyond. Stranger things have happened, like the time I woke up popular... Wait.. Never mind. 

Why, you ask? Well, my reasons are as profound as a goldfish's memory, but here's the gist:

  1. Boredom: Let's face it, staring at the same four walls is getting old. This is my escape, my one-way ticket to the thrilling world of, um, taking pictures of bins (yes, you read that right, bins are surprisingly photogenic).
  2. Creativity (allegedly): They say taking photos makes you see the world differently. I say it makes you question your sanity when you spend 20 minutes trying to capture the angst of a single crisp.
  3. Bragging rights (on the internet, obviously): Who doesn't love documenting their life for the validation of strangers online? Plus, if I manage to not accidentally delete my phone or lose it down a drain, I might even impress myself. 

Will I succeed? Probably not. Will it be entertaining? I certainly hope so. So, join me, dear reader, on this month-long challenge of questionable photography, dubious life choices, and the ever-present fear of accidentally uploading a photo of my sock drawer. Remember, laughter is the best medicine, and let's face it, we all need a good chuckle in the bleak midwinter.

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for any eye strain, nausea, or existential dread caused by viewing my questionable photography. Proceed with caution, and remember, bleach is readily available for online emergencies.

P.S. If you have any suggestions for photo challenges (besides "don't take pictures of your feet"), hit me up in the comments. And if you're feeling brave enough, join me on this journey! Just remember, misery loves company (and internet fame).

P.P.S. If you see me muttering to a rogue sock or trying to bribe a pigeon with cheese for the perfect shot, please pretend you didn't. My therapist has enough material already.

  1. Don't worry - the toaster has been cleaned after I abused it for the above shot 😇
