A couple of days ago, I posted a post about a project I started that combines daily photo journal with a song to go with it. I have to say that it’s been a great personal project because 1) I’m getting back to taking pictures (with my new camera) and 2) I’m researching for songs and listening to music more than usual 🙂
I invited some friends to join me in my journey and some of them have started on their blips!
I enjoyed a much needed break. During the two-week break, I came across a cool photo journal app, that got me to start a new daily photo journal. I’m enjoying seeing daily pics and enjoying the stories that accompany the images. I’m glad to take part in Blipfoto community!
This morning, I came across an interesting challenge by Cathaber who invited her readers to post their daily pictures with an appropriate soundtrack. For me, image + story + soundtrack = perfect!
Today’s blip is about cold, cold winter. It snowed about 7-8 inches overnight. This would not be that big a deal except that the local newscasters announced that our area is colder than Alaska right now!
So I got to think about what soundtrack I’d accompany my blip today. As I do for many of my classes, I just started listening to music and started making a “Winter” playlist….so here is the selection I made for many new winter songs I came across.
I’m tagging some people who are always listening to music and thinking about teaching connections:
For the friends I mentioned (or other readers): I invite you to start a daily picture-a-day (365 project) so that we can do it together. If this is too much 😉 I invite you to tweet or let me know if you write a post with a soundtrack that describes your day. I wonder how many soundtracks and songs we can track throughout the year. Life seen through music, doesn’t it sound just beautiful?
I heart my iPhone! I use it for just about everything – (ironically) with the exception of making phone calls (because I hardly ever phone people).
So when @aforgrave tweeted this to me and 4 others,
I’m thinking of an April iPhone-Pic-a-Day theme. Who’s in?
he got my attention. I’ve been learning to use whatever camera I have better. I have to say that some apps have made my picture-taking hobby really fun. Read Andy’s post here and join the fun!
We’re using the hashtag #iPPP and tagging pics as #iPPPDayXX. I’m also thinking of suggesting to my multimedia class to take daily pictures on their smartphones and share. I’ll see how that goes as the boys who are in this class are really into making movies right now.
