In 24 hours | A Photography Project

First off, can I just say “WOW!”

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to notice I was “Freshly Pressed” on the WordPress homepage bringing in so many wonderful people to my blog. I am truly elated by all the kind words and thoughts left by all of you. Thank you SO much, you really did brighten my day. I am in the process of replying to each and every one of you and visiting your blogs in return. I am overjoyed by all of your visits and I can not thank you all enough for taking the time to let me know you liked my blog, either by a comment or a like. It is truly, truly appreciated.

Today I want to share with you a photography project. A wonderful fellow Blogger named Helen commented on one of my posts the other week and with the visit to her blog, I saw she has some pretty fantastic photos! One of her posts entitled, 24 Hours in Photos 5983 miles apart, gave me the idea to try it out myself, and with her permission, I set out to capture a day in the life of me with photos.

I thought it would be easiest to take a picture with my iPhone every hour on the hour; I even had Siri set all my alarms for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ She is very handy. So without further ado, here is my completed project! If you do this, I’d love a link to see your project!

0000-Hanging out in my bed, as happy as can be.

0100-Still awake, that is my view from my pillow looking at the picture above my head.

0200-0700-That’s me being a lazy bum and actually sleeping.

0800-I find my pup laying on my pillow beside my bed. Yes….that is a dog.

0900-Doing Sass’s hair for Preschool.

1000-Waiting on my friend Holly from her driveway below. She is a bit slow in the mornings. ๐Ÿ™‚

1100-Checking out pillows at BB&B for my new couch, soon to arrive.

1200-Driving back into my housing community. On my way to pick up my daughter from Preschool.

1300-Getting Sass and Sprout a happy meal after school.

1400-I realized I was “freshly pressed” and I was pretty excited!

1500-I made a camera and Eiffel Tower necklace with stuff I found from Michael’s crafts store.

1600-Getting ready for me to go to school.

1700-“I’ve got my lunch packed up, my shoes tied tight, I hope I don’t get in a fight…” All ready for school!

1800-Me LATE to class…*sigh*

1900-Needing all the poison I can get to stay awake!

2000-Using my time in class wisely by replying to my blog comments!

2100-There is a little carnival in my town, I love Ferris Wheels!

2200-Probably not the best thing to eat before bed, but I was hungry. Leftovers from the night before.

2300-And my bed, before I racked out for the night.



-All photos were taken with my iPhone 4S and edited with Instagram

  1. I saw Helen’s post and found it inspiring too. After seeing your version I’m even more inspired. I should really try it myself soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ And oh, I also found your blog via freshly pressed, and I decided to follow immediately. Looking forward to posts to come. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hello! Thanks for the comment and the follow. I saw her post and thought it was an awesome idea and it seemed up my alley on something I’d like to do. Always cool to look back on as well. I am going to try and do it at least once a month. I think you should do it! Using my phone made it much easier! I just set my alarms and when it went off, I took a pic where ever I was. I would like to try and get more creative shots the next go around!

  2. That’s a great idea. I think I’ll try it out. Just not sure how to set up my camera to take auto photos of me while I’m asleep. I think I’ll wait for a day when I’m flying across the Atlantic to show multiple scenes thousands of miles apart within the same day. Too bad I don’t have one of those flights to Singapore via Europe lined up anytime soon. That would be awesome – photos from 3 continents and 2 flights in 24 hours. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hello, and thank you for stopping by. You should give it a try, it was pretty fun. The ones of me sleeping were taken by me *awake* lol and it is the same picture posted for when I was sleeping. I didn’t actually take any pics while I was sleeping on a timer or anything.

      That would be really cool to do this when you are on a trip! If you do this, please link back to me, I’d love to see it!

      • Hi again. Thanks for the reply. I am going on a transatlantic trip in 2 weeks’ time, so I’ll let you know if I decide to do this and post it on my blog.

        Have a great day!


    • Hahaha… days are not so interesting LOL. I am a single, stay at home mom of two little munchkins and I go to school full time at nights….This lady does not lead an exciting life these days. ๐Ÿ™‚ Give it a shot! ๐Ÿ™‚
