365 Photo Project (2011)

This project started at the beginning of 2011 ( I first heard about it over at klsbear.wordpress.com).   I joined in during March – almost three months in – in the hope that it would encourage me to take more pictures, and that practice would help me to improve my photography skills.

It became a treasure hunt of sorts; I had moments of absolute joy in coming across surprise scenes that would be perfect for one of the words, and I had times of great frustration in not feeling creative enough to find anything to fit some of the themes.

I did learn along the way, too. I learned about photography, and I learned about how kind and supportive people are on the internet. There’s a lot of us about, all experimenting with being creative and all learning from each other.

I didn’t manage anything close to the 365. My final count was just over 130, but I’m happy with that. I’d definitely do it again next year.


So here’s the list.
