To bring you up to speed, the Instagram challenge is designed to keep our photography flowing throughout the year, in the form of creating a nice collaborative rainbow. Each month will have a different colour theme. I'll announce a new colour monthly and then showcase my favourite shots on the blog at the end of the month.
If all goes according to plan, I think we'll be able to paint a beautiful spectrum on Instagram through the year, which you can watch unfold by searching the hashtag #kittyandbuckcolor
If you'd like to join in, there are no rules, other than using the hashtag #kittyandbuckcolor and taking a snap (or multiple snaps) that predominately features each month's colour. You can create a scene to photograph, or walk around your town and find new places that show off the colour of the month. Just use it as an excuse to exercise your creativity and photography skills!
I thought I'd ease you into August, it's not dramatically different from July's colour. I'm looking for all things green this month, I don't mind if it's forest green, moss, khaki, mint or spring green (you can get out your crayolas and check the shades) If it's green, tag it! The feature image is from the greenest place I've been: Yakushima, Japan. It's very closely followed by the forest around Muckross in Killarney, Ireland. Sigh. There's something about it that is just refreshing and peaceful. I'm really looking forward to seeing your photos this month.
If you'd like to spread the word, feel free to grab this button to share on your blog. You can resize it to fit your sidebar by changing the width and height values in the code when you copy it to your blog's sidebar. (just keep them the same so it stays square!)
