365 Project

One of the challenges I've decided to take on this year is the 365 Project.  Basically you take a photo a day, everyday, for a year.  You're probably thinking, "Oh pshaw, that sounds easy!" but au contraire mon frere.  Considering I have a full time legal job (a.k.a. way more than 40 hours a week) and often go for weeks at a time without taking a photo, I think this is going to be quite the challenge.  Though, to be honest, that's a large part of the appeal.  I know my "day job" is going to be quite time-consuming this year and I'm afraid of letting my beloved camera fall by the way side.  Forcing myself to take a picture everyday, no matter what, will help me stay in touch with the creative side and maintain the balance that is so important to a healthy life.  I fully expect days where this will feel like a chore rather than a pleasure.  I also fully expect days where I'll want to just call it quits and give up all together.  Nonetheless, I know this will be a great learning experience for me and I just want to give it a shot (*hee hee*).

It's already quite a few days past January 1, which is when most people start this type of project, so I decided to start on a day that is more meaningful to me.  As of next Thursday, January 13, I will be 29 years old.  Yes, I know.  SO close to 30!  What better way to experience the last year of my 20s than by documenting it with a photo a day everyday?  If nothing else, Year 29 will be the easiest to remember when that good ol' memory loss sets in!

So here's the plan: I will post my photos regularly in my Flickr photostream, which you can find by clicking here or over there to the left in the side column titled "Have You Noticed I Like to Take Pictures?"  I don't know if I'll be able to post everyday (depends on work schedule) but I will at least shoot everyday and post as regularly as possible so the photos don't get backlogged.  I will also do a Week in Review post on either Saturday or Sunday here on Big Mario to summarize the week.

If any of you are doing the 365 Project, leave a link to your photos here in the comments.  I'd love to see the world through your eyes, too!
