365 days…365 photos

1.1.11: Renewal

So, I’m starting another 365 photo project this year.  It’s a little bit different than last year’s in that I don’t have to actually take a photo EVERY single day.  Instead, there’s a list of 365 “themes” to capture throughout the year.  Of course, it’s easier to try to do one per day, but sometimes, there just doesn’t seem to be anything to photograph, so I like the concept of this particular 365 project.  For more information on this particular project, click here.

One other thing I want to change this year is to challenge myself to post only square images.  I want to challenge myself to see outside of the usual rectangular camera frame this year, so look for my square images throughout the year!

Here’s my first image of the year, the theme, “Renewal.”

P.S. If you’re looking for the last four months of my 2010 365 project, stay tuned!  They’re coming soon!

    An excellent image for the beginning of this project.

    I’m coming off two years of a photo-a-day. At first, I felt real relief at not having to come up with something every single day without fail. In that aspect, this seems easier. But as I was contemplating the list this afternoon, it does seem a bit overwhelming! It’s actually a totally different challenge.

  7. I find that when I am looking for a photo to put into a square frame…I can’t find one that fits. Squares are outside the norm…so you have set yourself another challenge…finding 365 square photos! Good luck!

  10. I like how your shallow depth of field emphasized the 11 in 2011. Nice!

  12. Love the creative view, was this a particular lens or just normal depth of field which caused it?

    • It was just a very shallow depth of field shot with a “normal” 18-55mm lens.
