Talking #Sharon's 48

Okay, so I still haven't got the hang of doing this blogging thing on a regular basis yet!

I've had a bit of a roller coaster year, and it's flying by at such a speed that I can't keep up. To slow things down, I've started doing some 'photo a day' projects via Instagram. I did #AugustBreak2014 first, and since then I've also started doing #fmsphotoaday for September.

I loved August Break, and took my time sorting and presenting many of the images, which I will present on here at some time. But it lead me to wonder what I do throughout the year, until it started again next year. I've therefore set a challenge that I'm calling #Sharon's48.

My mum is giving me a new word every week, in the run up to Autumn Break 2015, and I will take that photo prompt to take and present different images every week. Sometimes it may be one, others I may take half a dozen or more. It's all going to depend on how much time I have each week. All my photos are taken on my current iPhone 5c.

So back to this week, and the prompt is Talking. I will be honest, I was a bit flummoxed when that popped up, and wasn't sure how I would tackle it. When you live alone with a cat, the only talking you do at home is to them, and they don't often make sense when they answer you back! I therefore had to think a little more abstractly, and I didn't think I could get away with taking photos of random people having private conversations.

 Photo One - Talking from the radio, BBC Radio 4 and The Archers.

Photo Two - Arranging to talk to my boyfriend, a screen shot from our text messages.
Photo Three - Me. I used the selfie idea to take a serious of photos while I was talking, and then put them together on Diptic as a collage. No make up apart from a slick of lip balm!

I think I've covered this photo prompt well for my first attempt, and I am looking forward to tomorrow's new prompt word.
