One photo a day – half-way

Since the 1st of January 2008 I’ve been taking part in ‘project 365+1 2008‘, signing up to take a picture every day and posting it on flickr for all to see.

Today is the half-way point of the project and so far I’ve not missed a day. This is a far more difficult task than I would ever have imagined, I mean, how hard could it be to just take a picture every day? Well, if you want a nice one, then it can be a bit tough.

I went into it with no particular plan or goal other than to finish the year out. I kind of regret this now a bit as I think there is huge scope for projects within the project. I can still do many of these of course, but it would have been nice to have done them from the start.

I’ve tried to take good and, where possible, arty shots, but I think now that it may well have been more interesting to do a proper daily ‘photo diary’ documenting my life. I sometimes think ‘maybe next year’ but also ‘I wouldn’t put myself through this again’.

Quite a few people in the group have fallen by the wayside, but I feel quite determined to see out the year, It’d be a huge achievement.

See all the ‘one ohoto a day’ posts.

One thought on “One photo a day – half-way

  1. I forgot about the halfway point last week! I’ve really enjoyed doing my project 365+1 and plan on starting over again on January 1st every year. With kids it’s and easy way to document their lives. Like you, I also look for artsy or interesting shots for the project, but many days fall back on my goofy kids for my shot of the day.

    Looking forward to more of your photos!
