1/365: The very first one

Mommy & Nick

I'm doin' it. For 365 days in a row, I am going to attempt to post a photo a day. I take so many to begin with, I'm hoping this will challenge my photography skills and keep me thinking about different, interesting ways to take pictures.

I may put in a few words about where/when/under what settings the photo was taken, or where applicable, what I did in PhotoShop to modify the image afterward*. Most often? They'll probably be completely wordless.

Subject matter will change as I see fit. I may do a series of one type of photos for a week, I may change my mind after one day.

I thought the first day of October a great time to start this project - after all, I just helped my three-year-old learn how to use our point-and-shoot today. (I'll share his pictures in a post later this week.)

With any luck, he'll have his own 365 blog sometime soon!

*I don't often touch my photos at all, aside from cropping occassionally and adding my watermark. I don't say that to be all, "Hey, look at how freakin' great my photos are," but to point out that fixin' up and posting photos doesn't have to take a lot of time. I'd rather share imperfect photos than run out of time and share none at all.

Good luck! I originally started my photoblog with the intention of posting everyday for the citydailyphoto.com site but that didn't last long!! lol I keep thinking I'll try again sometime. Looking forward to what you come up with!

That is a great idea! I don't think I could keep it up.

Should be fun! Plus you will be able to look back and say "Oh my God, what was I doing wearing that!" Or something like that. :)

I love the pic!

Wow...I know I could never keep that up. I'm bad enough for a month (though I am trying very very hard to post daily for Downs Awareness month).
