Instagram Photo Challenge

Here it is, the promised follow up to my previous post! To start us off I’ll have to point you in the direction of an Australian based clothing brand called Blackmilk, they specialise in nylon clothing with a lot of cool prints, everything from a galaxy picture (taken by NASA) printed onto dresses and skirts, a license agreement with Disney, BBC, Game of Thrones, DC comics ++ that lead to some really cool gear, or the rainbow coloured snake skin print dress I wore in the picture on my last post! Everything is made and sewn in Australia to support fair working conditions and wages, which is a huge plus I feel! And it’s all incredibly comfy to boot! 

Blackmilk only operate online and the fanbase (Sharkies) are pretty active posting selfies in their Blackmilk pieces as each piece has a designated hashtag and when you apply it to your photo it shows up at their website alongside that piece so that people can see how it looks and fits outside of a studio!

Blackmilk (bm for short) Pic A Day May is a month long photo challenge in May where each day has a theme and sharkies all across the globe participate in posting pictures that goes with the day’s theme, the only rule is that you have to incorporate bm into your photo in some way. It’s a fun creative thing to participate in and a great way to discover other sharkies. Blackmilk gather their favourites for each day in an album on facebook and at the end of the month there is one prize winner of a $100 australian dollar gift card and two runner ups. I’m not thinking that I have a chance there as I know there are some pretty photo skilled sharkies out there, but it’s really fun to participate! 

This is how it looks:

The sharkie community is also the most loving group of people I have ever met and some have even become close friends of mine! 

If you’re curious to see some of the entries you can pop on over to my instagram and just click on the bmpicadaymay hashtag to see other entries as well! Today’s theme is, as you can see in the picture above, I Love Animals, so of course that was a perfect excuse for me to snap some pics of my cat!

Happy Sunday to you!
