As you may know, I am currently taking part in March the Month to walk 11,000 steps a day, every day in September to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
Early this morning I went for a run and we were out and about. However, it looked like I might not reach the target today so I went for a walk.
I was simply taking a walk around the block. Nothing special.
It was when I happened against a butterfly resting on the pavement I decided to take a photograph. I also saw the weather closing in and took another.
Recently I have been considering producing a new zine and had some ideas but didn’t settle on anything in particular. But then today, during the walk, inspiration struck.
Why not utilise the days I am out and about raising money to take a photograph each day to record what catches my eye and produce a zine to illustrate this month. I can then also donate the money from the sales of the zine to Prostate Cancer UK.
I don’t know what I will shoot, I will use each day in September to take at least one photograph whilst I am building up my 11,000 steps and see what the result is at the end of the month.
I do not plan to use a particular camera, format, preset etc, I will decide on this when the month is complete. For now, I am keeping things fluid.
I won’t be sharing these photos every day this month (unless there is something really special). I will save this for the zine when I produce it.
With 30 photos it might be a big zine but I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
Wish me luck!
