January has been and gone and I’m feeling ready for a photo challenge.

Back in November I brought a Canon DSLR camera and I’m making it one of my goals this year to learn how to use it. I want to make sure I’m getting the most out of my investment. Because I don’t know about you, but to me the amount of money I spent on it was definitely a considered purchase! And definitely not something I can leave gathering dust on a shelf somewhere.

I have seen many photo challenges over the years and even taken part in some myself. I do however, struggle to stick to a daily task like this for a long period of time. So I thought, why not create my own photo challenge and share it with you guys and girls. Hopefully this way, it’ll keep me accountable and I can keep track of my photography progress.

It may not be the start of the year, it may not even be the start of a new month but hey, you can start whenever!

I decided to make the photo challenge 52 things as there’s 52 weeks in a year, and I hope to stick to this [eek!] but take whatever inspiration you wish from this!

You don’t have to take part, but you are more than welcome to if you’d like to. I’d love to see your images too! All of the prompts are completely subjective, so I’d love to see what you snap a picture of after seeing these prompts.  Just make sure you tag me @simplyvioletuk.
