So uhh… about that whole Project 365 thing…

Remember back in June when I said I was going to spend the next year taking pictures and posting them every day?

I failed. Obviously. But then again, so did my photography accountability partner. What a pair, eh?

Now that my life has settled into a state of normalcy, I’ve decided to pick it back up again. Only this time I’m not going to bother posting to Tumblr and Flickr. For simplicity’s sake, I’m just going to post them right here. And I’m intending to give myself a little more grace this time around too, in a few ways. First of all, I intend to be realistic in my expectations. Every day is not going to be a masterpiece. In fact, most days (especially nasty cold winter days, when I can’t even think about venturing outside) I’ll probably just try to find a way to document life. Other days will be more artistic or technically inclined, but I want to give myself freedom. Plus, I have a whole mess of new photography equipment (Thanks, Sven!) to learn how to use. I’m sure the creative juices will be flowing. But be patient with me if my work kinda stinks for a while.

Secondly, I will post 365 pictures on this blog, Lord willing. However, if life happens and there’s a day or two between pictures, I’m not going to implode or throw in the towel completely. And you probably won’t either.

I’m also hoping that more time spent on my blog will encourage me to actually write in it again.

So. That being said, here’s 001/365.

  1. i definitely agree with your points…

    (1) i have a sort of 365 project too, though i don’t admit it–i just name it “Today’s Exercise.” hee hee. but anyway, let’s not beat ourselves if we miss a day or two.^_^

    (2) i used to have a separate Tumblr account for photography as well, until i realized that i’m just making it harder for myself to upload the same photos on two places…

    (3) “Every day is not going to be a masterpiece.” –true. i’ve recycled old photos because my photo for the day isn’t up to my liking. :( but that’s OK, there’s still tomorrow to make up for it!

    Anyway, congrats on your first venture towards 365! :D i got to write/blog often because of Windows Live Writer^_^

  2. Hey Katie,
    Nice to see a little life here again. I thought the whole reason ppl do the photo a day thing is because they want to get better, not because they are already great. It’s a way to push yourself to practice. I don’t think anyone expects a super photo every day. Are you following Andie E’s photo a day project? http://eggtropolis.blogspot.com/

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you post whenever you get to it. :)

  3. Hey There. I found your weblog the usage of msn.
