Hey everyone, 

As part of this photo challenge, we'd like to announce our partnership with Fujifilm.

 

In October we'll be hosting a huge exhibition of over 10,000 photographs by young people.

 

The exhibition will be over 4 days in London and the photos will showcase life through the eyes of a young person. Take part in our exhibition and upload your photos from this photo challenge by heading over to Fujifilm's website here.


You can upload up to three photos and for each photo you upload, you’ll receive a free print, and for each photo that's displayed, Fijifulm will donate £2.50 to The Mix. There's a chance to win some prizes too!


Good luck!

    Love this challenge! Thanks for making it @BubblesGoesBoo <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Something sentimental, my necklaces, they're all so special to me, the cross is from my dad when he thought he was gonna lose me, the courage one is the last gift I got from my aunt before cancer took her from us and the wee turquoise one is from another aunt, the doesn't normally send gifts but she did since I was inpatient for my birthday 💕  I wear them all always lol

    I don't have photos of these things so I will just mention them.

    2nd August- Blue

    3rd August- When I am laying on the sofa looking at the lamp 

    4th August- 43 because it is the day I was born+the month+the first 2 letters of the year I was born+my age (21+3+6+13.)

    5th August- My boards family and my biological family. Or my teddy bears and cats.
    It's Christmas time. There's no need to be afraid. At Christmas time we let in light and we banish shade. And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy. Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time.

    I'd have to dig to find photos (so I will edit this with photos if I find any) but my happy place is Duxford, big lover of all the tanks and planes and lots of fond memories of visiting it with my dad and grandparents.

    Good news, the gf took some photos from our last visit so I'll have some shortly :D

    6th a flower:
    And 7th happy place - outside in nature.


    The sun will rise and we will try again 
  • davcr0ckdavcr0ck South Oxfordshire (homophobic Oxfordshire) Posts: 774 Part of The Mix Family
    7th August happy place - well this basically any train station, the rural the better but also a mix of urban busy stations too,

    one station I do like which I know a lot of people hate is Birmingham New Street (second image) and Moor Street (first image) 

    One very modern and one very old and classic

    6th August- the local Asda near the self service checkouts. 

    7th August- The boards

    8th August- Prom in year 6. I will try and get a photo of the dress I wore as it is hanging up in the spare bedroom.

    8th August memories - so this time 7 years ago I would be recovering in hospital in Southampton, this was one of my actual happy days in hospital, its 11 year old me holding the Olympics torch in my hands before it carryed on to London for the 2012 London Olympics, (I'm happy to reveal my face in this one as it doesn't look anything like me now 😂😂) 

    In spoilers because in the pick at the time is also a drop machine, just in case it triggers anyone

    Memories - one summer after I got out of hospital for mental health, my friends decided to help me tick things off my bucket list to cheer me up, so we made Daisy chain crowns 😊
