100 Pictures of my Flock

2013 Edition


Welcome to 100 Pictures of my Flock, the 2013 edition!

100 Pictures of my Flock started out as a summer project in 2012, but I soon found that it was, well, surprisingly difficult to take 100 themed pictures over the course of only a few months. This time around, the project will last the entire year, and as such I have added seasonal themes to my list!


Basically, 100 Pictures of my Flock is a fun project for which I have thought of 100 different themes applying to my flock of chickens and Guinea fowl, and the goal is to take one picture fitting each theme before December 31, 2013. Many of the themes are open to several meanings and meant to be a sort of coincidental caught-by-the-camera happening. Some themes, though, have specific events in mind for, such as 'Hatchday Girls', and will occur on predetermined dates or whenever I happen to feel like it. However, none of my pictures will be staged in any way besides the date that they are taken on!


Anyone is welcome to try this with me, too, as long as they mind the themes and make sure they'll all fit the happenings of their flock! It's tons of fun and gives you lots of quality time with the ladies!
