Photo 365 - Number 365 - Their First Anniversary

Photo 365 - Number 365 - Their First Anniversary

18 Oct 2012 7:55PM   Views : 3502 Unique : 414

Ok - actually I'm sure I got my numbering wrong with this 365 blog and in fact the real 365 was a few days ago. However having decided on what pic I was going to do I decided to go ahead anyway and set this little lot up.

I fear a lot of tidying up will be required before I can do any more pics now.......

Well done Ali!
I've numbered each of mine individually and I've still gone wrong a few times.

Thanks Smile

Whether I'll be quite so diligent from now on I'm not sure - it'd be no trouble to keep doing a daily entry - I've been doing a daily upload elsewhere since 1st June 2009 and have only missed 12 entries.

Mind you if I keep going for a while there's a good chance I could overtake Pete and end up top of the Blog leader board Smile

Well done Alison! Not only have you uploaded one a day for a whole year, but most of your images have been well thought out and of brilliant quality and content. Smile

Thanks Chris - can I let myself go now and post utter dross? Smile

Actually I'm vaguely thinking about setting myself weekly themes to follow which would mean yet more blog uploads - I've not decided yet Smile

Quote:I'm vaguely thinking about setting myself weekly themes

I began my 366 with that idea and it worked for a time. My first upload was a shot of 'The Sweet Station,' a traditional sweet shop in town.
Jack (Strokebloke) suggested using 'stations' as a theme for a while and for a while, it worked.
I photographed every 'station' that I could access fairly easily and I had been planning to try to get some shots inside the Police and Fire stations, maybe with a friendly sergeant leaning on a desk or a fireman in full kit; that kind of thing.
It wasn't a lack of ideas that swayed me from that path but a lack of time for the groundwork and preparation that would need to go into getting the shots.
In the end, I resorted to taking varied, random, opportunist shots which is what I'm best at anyway.
As a weekly theme though, presumably, one shot a week, it could work.

Congrats Alison. I am currently doing a 52 which has been testing enough just getting one photo a week that I am happy to share, to do it on themes would be doubly testing, for me, but for someone who has completed a 365 (or however many) it may be entirely doable and I look forward to following it. Maybe I will even draw inspiration to start one myself for next year. Well done on this one.

Well I've not made any decisions yet on what to do next. Doing a 365 hasn't been that difficult - mostly probably because I live alone, have lots of props and plenty of time to play in the evenings. Even then I still had to do the odd emergency upload when I've been away or busy at other things.

If you do go for a 365 Paul you might have to lower your standards just a wee bit - it's night on impossible to produce a masterpiece once a month let alone every day Smile

I could probably manage a once weekly themed pic - definitely not a daily one though!
