Project 365 Week One

I'm actually surprised I haven't participated in this before to be honest but I wanna give this a whirl!  For those of you who haven't heard of it before it's basically taking a photo of something every day for one year.  If you miss a day or more you just take extra photos to make up for the missing days.  The pictures can be of anything, something fun you did, something you love, something mundane in a new light, playing with your camera's settings, whatever you want!  I personally am following the Project 365 prompts and themes from Picaboo's Blog with photos to start on the 2nd of Jan (I guess everyone is too hung over from New Year's to start on the first lol).  The first week's theme is supposed to be goodbye holiday with a challenge of taking a bokeh (a fancy photography term essentially meaning fuzzy photo of light).  Now I already took down my tree on New Year's Day so I missed my opportunity to take an awesome bokeh photo, oh well I'm not hauling to dumb thing back out nor digging Christmas lights from the shed.  There's always Christmas this year right?  I admit I totally ignored this week's theme on account that I pack up Christmas crap on the first of the year, every year and I didn't actually start my project till today.  The photos in this post are this week's work (well all done today, but so what).  I'm not a professional photographer and I don't claim to be so some of photos are bound to suck, deal with it ;)
Lastly a few great T's for you to check out!


  1. Good luck with the 365 project! I've always wanted to try that with self-portraits (drawn, not photographed), but I'm afraid I won't have time now that I'm in grad school. Maybe after I graduate? Or maybe I should bite the bullet and just do it!

    Thanks for the inspiration - cool photos so far!
