I’ve had it in mind to take part in Project 365, hosted by The Boy and Me for a long time now. Basically you take a photo every day and you share it.
I love taking photos. I’m a parent blogger who takes lots of photos of her kids. But I am also a parent blogger who never shares recognisable photos of her kids on her blog. Which is why I’ve never taken part in 365 before. It didn’t seem to make sense for me.
But nearly a year ago, I started using Instagram (sarahmo3w) and it changed the way I saw photography and the world. I started taking photos every day and seeing beauty in things like clouds and trees, as well as random and quirky images in both nature and the man-made world, which I’d never taken notice of before. I started using my phone to take more photos than my camera.
And I realised maybe I could take part in 365 after all.
So without further ado (and with a faithful promise that I won’t write such a long introduction in future), I give you my Project 365, week 1…
Day 1 – Wednesday 1st January – the year starts as it ended – with torrential rain (view from my bedroom window)
Day 2 – Thursday 2nd January – my daughter starts work on the Paint it yourself Gromit she got for Christmas
Day 3 – Friday 3rd January – flooding in our local park
Day 4 – Saturday 4th January – getting prepared for moving house next week!
