A Month of Everyday Adventures

If you’ve read my new interactive journal, Everyday Adventures: Tiny Quests to Spark Your Creative Life, you know that I’m obsessed with everyday adventures.

As I explained in my journal:

“ . . . I’ve found that I don’t have to visit faraway places to experience the joy of traveling. For instance, I’ve discovered dozens of magical places near my home in Siskiyou County, California. My husband, Logan, and I take frequent day and weekend trips because we love exploring northern California. Exploring local sights reminds me that my adventures can be tiny, yet extraordinary!”

During July, going on adventures will be part of my daily routine. Also, I’ll be documenting my adventures with my camera. I invite you to join me.

I created a list of photography prompts that you can use throughout the month. Some of the prompts are vague; others are more specific. Use the prompts below as a guide, and remember that there are no adventuring rules. For example, your everyday adventure could be an epic day-hike or a 10-minute nature walk. As Gloria Steinem said, “ … adventure starts the moment I leave my door.”

A Month of Everyday Adventures

Here’s how the daily photography challenge works:

1. Take a photo every day.

2. Share your photos on your blog or social media. For example, I’ll share my daily shots on Instagram using the hashtag #EverydayAdventures2017. Keep in mind that sharing your photos online isn’t a requirement.

3. There are no emails for this challenge, and there is no pressure to keep up. I’m keeping this photography challenge simple.

Other important notes:

1. You don’t need a special camera to document your everyday adventures.

2. If you need additional guidance, consider buying my new interactive journal—Everyday Adventures: Tiny Quests to Spark Your Creative Life. The journal is available in print and digital formats. Also, the PDF version is on sale for $1.99 until the end of July!

    Thanks for this Tammy, I’ve been looking for something to stretch and challenge me, without undue pressure. I’m looking forward to taking part.

    I’ve done badly at these in the past, because it is hard to meet other people’s prompts, to the schedule and maintain my artistic vision, so I’ve set up a separate Instagram so I can explore the community side of things, without messing up my client focused account. So you may have seen me as Jen Farrant, but now I’m going to do things like this as Jen Liminal Luminous. @liminalluminous I’m not sure how this will work out, but I’m looking forward to being able to have a space to explore in and have fun, rather than worrying about my ‘image’ and clients, which has stifled me quite a bit in the past!

      That’s a great idea Jen! I’m looking forward to seeing your images. 😉

    What a fun idea! I love it. It’s so important to create those everyday adventures and having a list of prompts makes it so simple. I love to create summer routines based on themes for my kiddos. But having a list of one word prompts will help them create their own adventures. Thanks for the challenge.
