Here's another idea for a "not far away from your armchair" bit of New Years Day photography that everyone can join in with......

Photograph your Calendar
Jim makes 3 Members contributing photos of their calendars....who is going to be the 4th!

Here's a collection of Calendars from places in England with a motivated tourist board, which when collated form a pleasant calendar in their own right:
:-D

That photo for the Secret Sussex calender is supposed to be at Stedham Common - which I put up a photo from not so long ago.... though I'm not too sure it isn't Ipiing Common which is next door. Weather and enthusiasm permitting, I might venture out tomorrow to try and find that spot and take my own photo :)

Not necessarily that photo, but it would be disappointing if you didn't make a contribution of an original photo taken on New Year's day 1st January 2021.....even if it has to be an indoor one :-D

No calendars in the house, if not a colander will do :-D

This is a joining in thread, come on joiners in lets have some photos!

Of course, important thing is that it is an image taken this very day, doesn't matter what it is :-D

I hope you made an announcement, should there be an assembled throng at Bobins Manor, that you were just going to take a picture of a sieve and post it on the French Car Forum. I do think odd behaviour, and others reaction to it is always an added bonus :-D

Well if you weren't lucky enough to get out for a walk in the great outdoors today here's a few pics from Northumberland hopefully with a little drama and interest in the changing light.

Not a sieve but will Chris Sievey, AKA Frank Sidebottom, do?

Sadly not my own photograph. Nor really anything to do with New Year's Day. Excuse my whimsy.

Simple. Your FCF needs you :-D
On New Year's Day when you emerge for your "exercise"/ dog walking/ bike riding/ or just wandering around your garden join in take a photo and post it up on this thread.

Got to be the simplest Day one task ever. Everyone has a camera. You don't even have to leave the house...take one from your armchair, photograph an album cover or a book, even take a picture of Champion the Wonder horse on your television (might have to time travel back to the 1960's I admit.)

Your FCF needs you, come on flood the thread with some January 1st photos, no photographic skill, or interestingness threshold.

As ever as the clock strikes midnight on January 1st entries close!
Regards Neil
I think we are entering the "indoor" photography stage now, unless, we do indeed have some FCF members who took their photographic devices on a walk earlier today and took some original January 1st 2020 photos.

I think we have discovered 3 FCF households that have no 2021 Calendar, and only one with a colander....unbelievable :-D

I need one and can't exist without one... I need it to remind me what day it is ;)

Otherwise I'm in serious danger of forgetting... One day is much like any other in my world...

Best I can do for a New Year's Day.


Otherwise I would need to move from my chair.
