Project 365

Whats that?? Well I was cruising around some other photography blogs when I started seeing all of these 'photo a day' or 'project 365' blogs. Basically, you make a commitment to yourself that you will take a photo everyday for a year. There are actually drawers and painters doing it do, and many other artist.
Why? Why not!? Imagine having a year long photo album. And time seems to move along so quickly these days... what a way to slow it down!! They suggest you do at least one photo a month with yourself in it too , so you can see how you change over the year. More so, it can make you into a better photographer and develop your creativity... you have to think of something interesting everyday, or make everyday things interesting. By using your camera everyday you'll learn more about your camera. You'll also learn whats important to you, and how you spend your time. As will everyone else, if you chose to publish it as I will.

So Day 1...

This is photo #1

I want to use this project as a way to diversify my work. Hopefully over the year this will happen and by taking my camera with me, to more places.
But today, while Bain's asleep, I didn't venture far for my first shot.... Some succulent flowers slowly drying/dying in a vase...

I will also be using a separate blog (see links..) called Leia's Project 365 as I want to leave this sight for other photography that I do, more specialised, more developed work. And it would get very crowded...
