I have been enjoying a bunch of blogs that are doing photo projects about everyday life. I decided that I wanted to do it too. So, for the next 366 days (it's a leap year, did you know?) I am going to try tracking my life with my camera. Just one photo a day... (yeah I know 1.12.08 has two photos... but it was the first day, lol) that is a random moment of my everyday life. I'll be posting the photos in my Flickr gallery HERE. Don't worry, LOL, I won't be boring you with it here. Well, that is of course unless I get a really really good picture that you just have to see.
This art project is more for myself then anything else. I can't wait to look back at these days a year from now. I hope it helps me grow a little as a photographer and I hope it helps me to look at my days in a different, more appreciative and hopefully humorous, (check out 1.13.2008, can you tell what that is about, LOL) way. I think, all to often, I get caught up with this or that and I forget that I have a really good life. I am one of the lucky people that get to follow a "calling" to create and I shouldn't take that for granted.
If you have a camera, I think you should do it too. Really, what could it hurt? I am also challenging myself to leave the photos as taken. No editing, at all. You'll see them just as they come out of my camera.
