Instagram Photo a Day Challenge: A to Z

Recently I participated in an Instagram Photo a Day Challenge from A to Z and found it to be extremely rewarding. Fortunately I have an extensive photo library that I’m able to access, but some days there were some challenges. The month had 31 days and the alphabet only has 26 letters, so for the last 5 days of the month letters were substituted for numbers, from 1 to 5.

My theme for the month was travel photos, as this is my passion. Without further ado here are my 31 photos for the Instagram challenge:

    Such great photos!

    This photo challenge would have just been too hard for me to complete not having such an extensive library of photos!

      Yes it does help to have lots of photos or the ability to get out and about each day to take an appropriate photo. I always rather enjoy doing these photo challenges and it makes you think. #TeamLovinLife

    Wow Kathy, AMAZING! And gorgeous photos. I was thinking of people like you and Jan and Sandy when I said I knew travel bloggers who would have WAY more info about travel and destinations than me booking something via travel agents! I just need to work out how best to get suggestions and make plans!

      Thanks Deb. I think following other bloggers has definitely helped me make travel plans and also talking to friends about their travels. Travel Agents are good if you don’t feel like taking the responsibility of booking for yourself. It’s a big job.

    You did so well with this challenge. I always start out with the ‘yeah, I can do this’….& tend to lose focus halfway through. Great pics. #TeamLovinLife

      Yes we stopped here on a Caribbean cruise a few years ago. It was a dry arid island with a Dutch influence. We really enjoyed our day here. :)

      Thanks Kerrie. It was a great challenge to try and think of places we had travelled to that commenced with the letter of the day. Luckily I had an extensive photo library! #TeamLovinLife
