So here we are – at the end of the August, and 31 photographs taken for Project 365 : 2015.

August has been a weird month. For me on a personal level, for the weather, which has been up and down, and for my photos which have been a real mixed bag, and several duds. I do have a few favourites: Day 220 – Burst, of a real fluke shot of my niece reaching up to burst a bubble and actually capturing the moment of it bursting! I don’t think I could get that shot again if I tried! Day 226 – Ruby, of a chocolate tart that we sampled – it was lush, and I think the photo is lush too! And finally, Day 234 – Chance Of Meatballs, of the clouds – something I love taking photographs of.

As August gives way to September, and as the season changes from summer to autumn, I anticipate a change to my photographs for the final three months of the year. I’m looking forward to the changing colours of the leaves, of the autumn stuff – like conkers, and pumpkins, and fungi… I do suffer from SAD though, so there is part of me that is also dreading the next three months too.

I’ve made a decision not to carry on into a sixth year of Project 365. I don’t think I can mentally deal with the pressure I give myself to take photo a day, and this year has proved that with me not taking a photo a day, but several on one and spreading them out during the month – or even into the next month. Instead, I’m aiming for Project 52, which is a photo a week, instead. But we’ll see, I may be in a completely different place on 31st December.

Here are all of my Project 365 : 2015 photographs for August. I’d love to know your favourite(s) – why not tell me in the comments section?

Project 365 ideas and tips…

As well as a photo a day, I also include an idea or tip each day too. It’s not always easy to think of one, but I do my best and hope that you find them helpful for your own Project 365! Here are all 31 tips for August.
