Two years ago, when I turned thirty, I decided to start a Project 365. I took at least one photo every day for the entire year and picked one to represent each day. 365 photos in 365 days. I posted them all here.
I decided that after a year hiatus, I am ready for another round. Today is my birthday (yay!) and officially day one of my second Project 365 project.
There are lots of wonderful things about doing a Project 365. During my first project, I found that it kept me much more present -- looking for the wonderful in the ordinary -- and I was more apt to seek out interesting experiences to capture.
In anticipation of this project, I recently got the back of my iPhone replaced to repair the scratched camera lens. The scratch on the lens made all of my photos look a little fuzzy/romantic. Like this:
Not horrible but annoying when I didn't want all my photos to look nostalgic. Now my photos look normal again! I even took a photo of the ground right after getting it fixed. That's how excited I was about it. See?
Crystal clear, right?!
In addition to my iPhone, I will also use my Canon Rebel T1i because it is one of my favorites.
My project will begin today and continue through June 19, 2013, the day before I turn thirty-three. I will post this project's photos here, at a minimum of once a week.
