It’s pretty neat to see what your idea of “from down low” might be from another friend who is following the same photo challenge ideas for Instagram. Follow along with us and hash tag #AWSphotochallenge with these creative photo ideas for July...

1. Your Favorite Mug...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

For July 1st’s photo challenge idea for Instagram, post a photo of your favorite mug. Every morning I love waking up with a cup of coffee and I have a few mugs that I like to keep to myself. For Mother’s Day my step-daughters gave me a Winnie the Pooh mug with the quote, “It’s the Simple Things that count,” says Pooh. “Like bees, balloons, and honey, or a friendly paw in yours along a path that’s sunny.” It’s my favorite mug and when I drink from it I’m reminded to remember the simple things in life.

2. Summer Vacation...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Whether you’re on vacation, dreaming of going to Paris, or waiting for the week to be out so you can start, share with us what you’re doing for Summer vacation. I love seeing the fun ideas people come up with even when they stay home for the Summer. There are so many creative things to do without leaving your own backyard, if that’s what your budget calls for. Show us what you’re doing this Summer.

3. Your Favorite Stuffy...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Through out our lives, from the day we’re born to our first date, we all have some type of cuddly, stuffed animal that someone gave us. Take a photo of your favorite stuffy to compare with everyone what animals we all have. I bet we’ll see more than just a cute little teddy bear as everyone’s stuffies!

4. Celebration...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

In America, July 4th is Independence Day and we’ll be celebrating with fireworks, barbecues and probably beer! But perhaps you are in another part of the world and you’re celebrating a birthday, a marriage, or a new baby. So whether your celebration is for Independence Day or for a family member’s big day, show us how you are celebrating!

5. Something about You!

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It’s really fun to take selfies, but let’s get more creative than that, shall we? Take a photo that is of something about you, something that makes you who you are, or something that inspires you.

6. Best Part of Your Day...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Snap photos on your phone throughout the day and then go back over them to remember the best part of your day. Share with us that moment that really made you smile.

7. Neighborhood

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It would be so neat to see what everyone’s neighborhood looks like. I love seeing historical buildings and different architecture from around the world. Is your neighborhood city-like, more suburban, or are you in the backwoods living the country life?

8. Food

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you are obsessed with sharing your photos on Instagram like I am, then you’ve probably taken a food photo before. So why not do it again, but this time let’s have some fun with it. Show us what someone else is eating! Okay so don’t go bothering a stranger, but maybe take a photo of your significant other’s meal or your friend's!

9. Home

My favorite time of day is nap time! Are you a morning person, a night owl, or just enjoy the middle of the day when you have the most energy? Snap a photo of your favorite time of day and let’s compare to see who is up late at night and who rises early in the morning!

14. Flowers

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh flowers? Well, maybe those who have allergies! But that doesn’t mean they still can’t enjoy the beauty of a garden. Share your favorite flowers with us so we can be reminded of just how beautiful life really is!

15. Fresh Fruit

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Besides flowers, there is nothing more beautiful in the Spring and Summer than fresh fruit! I love going to the farmer’s market and getting fresh fruit and vegetables for the week. They are so colorful and are just such an easy, healthy snack to enjoy.

Just like the word love, the word beauty has so many different meanings behind it. Where do you see beauty, where should we look for beauty? Inspire us on Instagram and open the eyes of everyone to your beautiful world.

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Some days it’s the only thing I drink, but perhaps water will mean more to you on this day. Are you swimming in the ocean this Summer or fishing on the lake? Show us what water means to you on Instagram and don’t forget to use your hash tag #AWSphotochallenge!
