It has been one entire year of Photo-A-Day and today I will begin another. Yes, I am doing another full year of photos. Something that I realized while doing this project is that I enjoy having a photo each day from where I was around the country. Sometimes the images werenâ€™t very interesting or artistic. Some were just plain weird. But each one invokes a memory from the day I took the photo and that has been something important to me. I would like to thank Christopher Williams for his Photo-A-Day project that inspired me to do my own project.
During this project I impressed certain rules upon myself.
- The image had to be taken that day. I broke this once for an important reason.
- The image had to be posted on the day it was taken.
- I had to take the image.
During this next year I will try to adhere to these rules as well as I can but I may allow myself to be in more images so if someone else takes the image I may post that, I havenâ€™t decided if I will do that or not. I do have a tripod and the ability to set the timer on the camera so that may be the way I get into pictures.
I have met some great people online who also do Photo-A-Day.
- Christopher Williams
- Kym Rohman
- Amy Sue VanDerWerf
- Lisa Spodak The best Photo-A-Day Layout ever. And she is fundraising for a great cause.
- Annie Mentzer
- Gabrielle Krupnick
- My friend Becky â€“ She has a great eye.
- Kevin Michael
And then there were some people who helped me during Guest Photo-A-Day week while Allison and I were on our honeymoon.
- Day One â€“ Christopher Williams
- Day Two â€“ Lisa Spodak
- Day Three – Andy – AKA andycamp
- Day Four – Kym Rohman
- Day Five â€“ Matt â€“ My cousin an artist and drummer.
- Day Six â€“ Mo â€“ Of Weâ€™re In a fight
- Day Seven â€“ Wes Molebash â€“ Of Youâ€™ll Have That
- Day Eight – Gabrielle
- Day Nine – Kostika
These folks were great to help me out when I had no way of posting in Aruba. I posted my images when I returned just so I could complete a full year, I figured it would be cheating if I had skipped nine whole days. Cheating in my own self imposed rules.
I havenâ€™t quite figured out what to do with all of these images. I kept a copy of each for the whole year and when 2006 rolled around I kept a copy of the original file as well. The images are all 450px X 350px at 96dpi. This doesnâ€™t translate well to printing the pictures. So I started keeping the originals as well so that If I ever wanted to do something with the images I could do so.
Are you ready to take the Photo-A-Day challenge? If so please let me know where your images will reside and I will link to you. Hereâ€™s to another year of photos.
