Project 365: Some Background

So what is Project 365? Well, it’s more of a movement than a project. Essentially, it is a challenge to make at least one photograph each day for a year. It’s a great challenge, and very difficult to keep up for a year’s time, judging from how many photographers try it and then give up on it. You can find out more by Googling Project 365, or by taking a peek at a writeup on Photojojo. There are many Flickr groups that focus on this kind of work, and there are plenty of other writeups around the ‘net.

I believe the push to find something to photograph daily forces me to look for photographic opportunities where I might not have ordinarily thought of looking before. And frequently, these are photos taken with my Best Camera — the one I have with me. In my case, many of these will be either from my iPhone or my Canon G10. One or the other of them is almost always within arm’s reach.

Today, I missed making any photos, so that’s why you’re getting the background on the project. I feel pretty confident that I’ll miss even more days throughout the next year. However, my intent is to stick with the project, and photograph for as many days as I can during the upcoming year.
