I started my own 365 project 5 days ago after seeing many other such projects by people all over the world. It's an interesting idea and one that should be up my street. After all, I carry a camera everywhere I go and even when I haven't got my camera with me, I'm sure to have my camera-phone with me.
The good thing about the 365 project is it acts as a photo-journal of a person's life. The rules are clear: you have to take at least a photograph a day and post it on the web. You should not post a photograph taken on a different day. That sounds easy enough.
But although I'm very much a camwhore, if you'll pardon my use of a word that sounds incredibly rude but has since gained universal acceptance, I did rack my brains yesterday as to what pic to take. The rules for a 365 project are wide enough - it can be any pic and it doesn't have to be a photograph of a scenery. As it happened yesterday, I had just read a novel and so I took a pic of it. Not much artistry in that but it serves to tell a story of my life - on 26 November, I completed my reading of a novel.
There are countless books you have read in your time but you probably can't recall even a small fraction of them ever again. With your own 365 project, it gets woven into that huge tapestry of your life. It doesn't matter if you aren't artistic; I'm not at all artistic in my photography. Most of the time, I use only my camera-phone and even if I use a proper camera, it's always a compact camera. But what attracts me to this 365 project is its usefulness as a graphic record of my personal life. I do keep a daily diary of everything that happens in my life but the 365 project makes it all come alive. A picture does paint a thousand words.
