I always liked the idea of a photo every hour, it makes for a more realistic photo diary. It also means you have to think consciously about what you’re going to frame for that hour. I like the honesty it shows, a real insight into someones actual day to day life, be it fun, boring or mundane reality. It’s also actually quite hard, and I probably didn’t do it strictly every hour on the dot… As my first one, I know some of the photos are not that exciting/great. But I think it’s good practise and hopefully I can improve as I do more of these!
Here is my first photo diary of a Saturday…
11am: my new favourite breakfast. Granola that doesn’t have bloody wheat flakes in it. I’ve cut out gluten again as my IBS has been crappy and i’m going to be put on a strict ‘fodmap’ diet soon by a dietician.
Ingredients: Jordans simply granola (it’s oats, which don’t contain gluten. Though sometimes people who are extremely sensitive to gluten cannot eat oats because they are made in factories with wheat a lot of the time! But for me, they’re ok) / Real greek yogurt – I like FAGE as it’s proper greek. Not ‘greek style’. / Blueberries and raspberries. So good!
12pm: Walking through Dalston to go to Andy & Eliza’s new house. Spotted a Metal Gear Solid fan. Strong hoody.
12.30pm: LAMBY. Eliza’s toy from baby days!
1.30pm: The life of a Hackney cat.
2pm: Stamford Hill – On the bus to IKEA. Stuck in hell traffic.
3pm: IKEA cafe, it would be rude not to.
4pm: I’m always so tempted to buy the kids stuffed toys at the end of the showroom. Anyone else?!
6pm: Waiting for a taxi. 8pm: Re-potting my new plant and moving older plants. I don’t have a garden so the living room floor is definitely the place for some indoor gardening..
9pm: I made some baked eggs with leftovers from the night before.
Small roast potatoes
A tiny bit of red onion
Salt & pepper to taste
Put them all in an oven proof dish and bake until the eggs are cooked. Easy :)
