    I didn't see that Mobitog had this challenge until now but have been taking pictures everyday as a challenge to myself so I hope I am not too late to join??! Ah well, am posting anyway and I hope that is okay.

    The first 5 days were easy because I was on holiday and taking pictures everyday anyway. Some of the next 5 days have been more of an effort as I have been indoors most of the time and now I know why Geri has been doing some still life!

    Now that I am documenting my pictures live, it will force me to make more of an effort!

    DAY #1

    This was a jellyfish just beneath the surface of the sea in shallow water. I was trying to keep my shadow out of the way but in fact only this picture which included my shadow showed the long stinging threads at the end of the tenticles.

    DAY #2

    Sitting in my lounger on the beach, this little fellow was darting around on the sand. I quickly pulled out my iPhone and added my Olloclip Macro lens and managed to get close. The bug hesitated for a couple of seconds and I managed to get this picture.

    DAY #3

    This is when I at last decided to download Hipstamatic and give it a try. I really love this picture. I just happened to get the right film and camera when I took it. My husband was playing golf and I sat in the buggy and tried all the different films and cameras. I have been very restrained in what I bought having read that day what people used on Mobitog.

    DAY #4

    This butterfly kept on landing on my leg while I was on the lounger. I think it liked the salt on my skin. I have been trying to get to know some of the painting tools so I took it into Brushes and painted over it to give it a painted look. The white was actually the edge of my skirt. I should have done more with it but I ran out of time.

    DAY #5

    We were on our way home and I got a picture of a moth on the wall and combined it with quite a few other pictures I had on the iPad (the house was an old one not taken on a mobile device but the rest were!). I worked with it on the plane but never really came up with anything I was satisfied with.

    D005.JPG I can't remember the apps used on the other photos but the apps I used to combine everything were: Snapseed, Diana, Repix, Superimpose, iColorama and Pixlr

    DAY #7

    I had a full day of photo taking and in the end it was hard to decide which one to include for this day but my macro pictures were the best and this was a favourite:

    DAY #8

    I went with my Hong Kong Chinese friends to a seafood restaurant in Clearwater Bay and I was expecting to get some great shots but these restaurants are like canteens and the area was quite untidy and I struggled to get a well composed shot. Also, I had a limited time to take the pictures. In the end this one was one of the best. If I was to process it now I would reduce the strong green tint.

    DAY #9

    I found out about the Effexy app through Geri's Flickr submission so I took a picture of a flower and tried out some of the effects. Not one of my best but gave me an idea of how I could use it in future.

    DAY #10

    I went into the back barbecue area of our apartment building to try and get a picture. The area is really quite worn with few flowers and ordinary foliage, faded plastic barbacue furniture and a faded children's jungle gym so this was a real challenge. I felt that I should have tried to be creative with the jungle gym but I wasn't inspired. I took a picture of the these palms trees which were in front of an old storeroom. I liked the symmetry of the trees and bars. However, on it's own it was pretty dull so did some enhancing. The result is okay.

    I think what this project is emphasising to me is that if I am not inspired by the picture I struggle to do a good enhancement.

    Great photos. I love them all but my fav is the golf course with its rich colors, shadows and light rays.

    Thanks, mwolfer. I agree. They say lighting is everything and the light was perfect when I took that shot.

    Thanks, lisamjw and StickyQuote. If there was ever a year for me to do it, it is this one. My husband has to do lots of travel for his work this year and we are making the most of being in Hong Kong. So over the next 4 months we have short trips to Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia and back to the UK and I will be taking short trips into China too!

    DAY #11

    My husband and I spent the day at the Kowloon Cricket Club on the Hong Kong Mainland. This part of the building was built in 1932 so I wanted to give the building a slight old look. I'm not great with buildings and I have taken some better pictures of flowers today which are my favour but I wanted to use this as a learning experience.

    Knew I would be in day all day today so had a apple ready. Was going to do a really surreal manipulation but it didn't work out great. So decided to do a sketchy effect:

    Awww, Ann, what a wonderful treasure chest your thread is. Can't tell what picture I like the most. Each one has it's beauty. :inlove:

    Are you home again or still in Hong Kong?
    Would like to send you a picture I've taken and I wonder if it COULD be a Chinese symbol (I'm not sure at all), and if what is upside and what does it mean ... or maybe you can read Chinese? Sorry, but your pictures gave me the idea to at least ask ... Hope you don't mind.

    Thank you all for your kind comments.

    GroovyGouvy, send me the pic. I will be living in Hong Kong for a couple of years so not back for a while ! Miss being able to photography the countryside but it's a great place for street photography which I find a real challenge.

    Yes, send me the symbol. I have loads of Chinese friends and they will be able to tell me.
