Project 365 | A PHOTO A DAY PROJECT 2011-2012
So, maybe some of you have already heard of Project 365 where one must capture a photo a day for an entire year. Well, I’ve attempted to do this a few times and never succeeded. It’s like making a New Year’s resolution and then it falls through the cracks because either we’re too busy, lose interest, or lack the motivation. When 2011 began, I told myself that I will never start this up again for those simple reasons. But, lo and behold, here I am back into it and this time I truly believe I am going to see it through to the end… Why? Well, first of all, I am so much more passionate about photography than I was a year ago, read my last post here. Second of all, my youngest is now in Kindergarten, so both my boys are in school giving me some time alone. (YESSS!!!). Lastly, some close friends of mine decided to do Project 365 as a group and every day we post our photos in our Facebook group to keep each other motivated and accountable. There are others who have joined that we never met, but now it’s become like another extended family. It’s been awesome so far, everyone is so supportive and the friendships that we’re forming are what keeps us so inspired!
Most would think, that it’s best to start P365 right at the beginning of the year which seems only fitting because it’s simply a ‘new’ beginning to a new year. But, it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way and you can begin ANYTIME. To me, I like that we started this project about 2 months ago, smack in the middle of year. It kinda takes that pressure off of having high expectations like resolutions do, ya know what I mean?
Every Monday, I post a weekly theme that is optional to the group and is really for myself, but thought that it wouldn’t help to share with my group if they want to follow along. So far we are in Week 8 and it’s been so fun seeing the different perspectives from those who do participate. Here are my weekly themes so far:
WK 1: GROWTH
WK 8: THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO–HMMMM….
Below is my faves from each week and hopefully I’ll begin to post my photo of the day from this point on or perhaps a weekly round up if things get too busy for me to do one each day… I’m really determined to keep this going, so any encouragement or support will truly be appreciated!!!!
