Since I found out about Project 365 so last minute and had to jump right in on the first day, I didn't have too much time to think about what I was trying to accomplish by participating. Now that I've slept on it and had time to read a little more about it, I thought I'd establish what my goals are for this year.
1. Most importantly, I want to document our lives this year. If I have to choose between a down and dirty snapshot that captures my family vs. an artistic shot of nature, my family will almost always win. That's not to say I won't be going for the artsy abstract photos, I'm sure there will be plenty. But first and foremost will be documenting the little moments that make up our life.
2. Because I really want to make sure I keep up with this project, I'm giving myself permission to rely on photos taken with my iPhone. I know there will be busy days and ones where I don't feel like participating. For those occasions, I know I can whip out the phone and get something documented without feeling guilty.
3. I will take one photo for every day of this year but they may be posted in small clusters here on the blog or in my Flickr photostream. I don't want this project to overwhelm my content on Peanut Blossom so I may not post each and every photo here. To see the full project, you may have to look over on Flickr once in a while. I hope to include a little button/link in my navigation in the very near future so it will be easy to find.
So that's about it. I'm so excited to see the collection grow. Already this morning in an attempt to play with my camera settings, I managed to get some accidental Christmas tree bokeh. If it weren't for this project, I'd have left my camera on my desk this morning instead. I just know I'll be learning so much in the coming months. I look forward to sharing it with you.
