INSTAGRAM: Photo A Day Challenge (October) 2012

Are you hanging with us still? We are carrying on with the Instagram Photo a Day Challenge. After wrapping up the September Photo A Day we are looking forward to the great new list for October. We are having so much fun and the new October #Photoaday Challenge List looks like it will be fun.

Here are some of our favorites from this month.

#photoaday is a fun photo-sharing challenge. Using the app Instagram snap a quick photo a day based on the list below then apply one of the fun filters. There are no rules and you can be as creative as you want. You don’t have to take the most amazing photos, it’s all about the social sharing of it. Everyone is welcome to play!

Once you’ve taken your photo share it by using the hashtag “#FMSphotoaday” so we can all follow along.

Find / Follow us on Instagram by name @vintagegrey. We try to keep the VINTAGE theme going with our photos. We really hope you will play along and join with us in the fun!

October 2012 Instagram Photo A Day Challenge

(((WE LOVE THE VINTAGE PHOTO VIBE that INSTAGRAM OFFERS)))

This has been a very fun way to share with friends. It’s turned into a little competition amongst us to see who can make the cutest picture for the day and we have stayed in touch more by doing this.

One of our favorite part of photo a day is checking out everyone else’s photos. You can find them on Instagram or Twitter by searching the hashtag #FMSphotoaday.
