A Photo a Day for 365 Days

I have a rather large and varied set of interests. One of those interests is photography.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m no professional photographer by any measure, but I’ve always had a working fascination of what goes into taking a compelling photo. So, finally, late in 2009, I started carrying my beat-up (and by beat-up, I mean coming apart) Canon SD700 IS with me and actually using it for more than the occasional picture of the kids.

The camera I started the project with: the (retired) Canon SD700 IS.

As the end of 2009 approached, I decided that I was going to take a picture a day during 2010. I remember feeling a bit creatively adrift and sort of wanted to take on a project. And I wanted to figure out how to actually use all these different settings built into the Canon point-and-shoot cameras.

The initial idea was I’d take a picture every day and post it. This idea soon fell apart; I didn’t have time each day to search out an interesting image. Instead, I started taking a lot of pictures at one time, usually over the weekends, and pop them up on flickr, one per day, as the week unfolds. I only cheated once when I used a photo from 2009 that I was particularly fond of.

So, anyway, here’s how that’s going: 365 from 2010.

Some are contrived, some are accidental, some are good, and some are bad.

But they’re all mine.
