I have tried the whole “take a photo of yourself” every day for a year thing, and I have learned that I am just not cut out for that much face time in front of the camera… but I still love the idea of a photo for every day occurrences…
YIP, or “Year in Photographs”, is a project that feels a little more my speed. Some self portraits or photos of family and friends, and some random things that I see and do throughout my day. Truthful, honest photography that captures my life as it is *right now*. Memory jogs for later, or a simple reminder of something important to me… sometimes funny, sometimes poignant. There is even a special YIP group for “knitterly and crafty types” which often showcases people’s works in progress and their finished crafts, as well as regular life things…
So, I started this YIP project last week – and while I am only six days in, I am pretty excited about the prospects. I think it will serve as an sort of personal archive for years to come…
1:365 – September 4th
…and just like the old adage, each photo is worth a thousand words… or as many as I add in the description over on Flickr. So, click if you are interested to learn more.
I am hoping to well up enough “stay power” to keep this going. It’s fun now – and I hope I still feel that way come Day 237
