My friend Trish posted about Project 365 as something she’s going to do this year and I thought I’d give it a whirl.

The idea is that you take a photo a day for 365 days. I think this seems like an ambitious goal for me, but Brianna has shown a lot of interest in using my camera to take pictures recently, so I’m going to do it “with” her and use a combination of her photos and mine. The first three days are all pictures she took.

One thing I did make sure to clarify was that I don’t have to POST the pictures every day. I just have to take one each day and can post them in batches once a week or whenever I get around to it. That sounds more doable than promising to post a picture every day. I already know I’d fail that. What I did do was set up my Flickr account and add it to the sidebar, so if you’re curious about my project, you can either check out my sidebar or add the RSS for my 365 set to your feed. If you hover over the picture it will tell you the title/date, but if you click on the picture and go to it, I’ll add a little blurb about each one on Flickr. And if you’re interested in other photos, there’s also a 365 Flickr group.

I have to say, looking at some of the pictures is a little intimidating, because people are taking these amazing photos, editing and photoshopping them and creating some beautiful art. I, uh, I’m just going to slap photos up there. If I get all anal about this and try to take the perfect picture every day, I’ll give up in days. So don’t expect to see any works of art here! Some days, you may even see camera-phone pic and anyone who knows the iPhone knows it doesn’t take the most amazing pictures.

I didn’t find out about this project until yesterday, so if you’re like me and want to join a few days late, Trish said it was okay to post pictures that represent those first days that you missed. The idea here is to create a photo journal of your year, both the memorable and the mundane. I hope you’ll let me know where to follow your photos if you decide to join in!
