A photo project

Last year I posted a few pictures in January and February in response to the idea of a 365 project. You may recall that a 365 project is the effort to take & post a new picture every day for an entire year... 365 new pictures. There are many fun blogs out there showcasing the results of such undertakings. I've had fun following one or two of them.

Now... there is no way that I have time to do an entire 365 right now... I couldn't even do a 265 or a 165. But... how about a 48?

I got this note from a friend today:

Taking photographs is fun.  Sharing them is even better.  Sticking with one theme a month, upload one photograph a week that somehow represents that theme.
One theme a month.
One photograph a week.
12 x4 = 48 photographs.
You in?
If so, click on February’s Assignment and start shooting and posting!
Clicking "February's Assignment" gets you this:
The assignment for February is neighborhoods.  Deadline? Post one photograph each week of February by Sunday, there are four during the month:  February 6, 13, 20, 27. You may choose to include commentary on your photo.
An idea to consider is what makes your neighborhood unique or ubiquitous.  Your neighborhood is familiar, home…how can you represent it to others? Consider also using different types of cameras, SLR, DSLR, phone camera, point and shoot, and alternative process.

I'm game (I think). I'm going to give it a go. Watch for a picture here about neighborhoods by the end of the week.

I love the idea of taking a picture every day/week/month or whatever. I'd love to take part in the "one theme a month" project. How will I know each month's theme? Also, I'm not a photographer. I use a simple digital camera with very limited capabilities. Regardless, I'm willing to at least post one picture per week based on a theme. I'm in!

This idea sounds great. I mean great for you to do and me to see. My sense of space and how it can be occupied usually leads to bizarre or ironic photos that nobody else finds ironic. But I'm glad you're doing it Clarkmeister cuz you the photoman!

Hey Clint. I'll ask the blog admin to send you an invite. More on that soon, I hope.
