Project 365

I heard about Project 365 some time ago and ever since then I've been wanting to give it a try. The concept is a simple one, take and post one picture every day for 365 days. It becomes a visual diary of one year of your life. I'm told it makes you a better photographer as you strive to find something interesting to photograph every day. Sounds good to me!

The key to this project is to keep doing it every day. There will be days when I'm busy, days when I'm tired, days when I just don't want to be bothered. I'm going to try to snap a picture anyway. I may not post the photos each day, in fact I think once the novelty wears off it will probably be more like once a week or so. But hopefully I'll be able to take a photograph every day. It will give me a good excuse to play with my new camera and try out the fun features. And when I've completed 365 days, I may just make a book of it!

And just to add a challenge to my project, I'm going to try to include one photo each week that fits with the DPS weekly themes.

So, want to see where life takes me this year? Tune in! (And don't hesitate to leave me some words of encouragement now and then!) You'll find my Project 365 at Photography Gene.

Care to join me in a Project 365 of your own? Leave me a link to your project in the comments below! TK, what about you? (She and I just recently got the same camera, a Canon of course! ;-)
