In 2009 I decided to flex my creative muscles by undertaking a rigorous photo project, Project 365. It involved taking a photo a day, every day, for a year. I only made it through 2 months. While I loved the challenge I simply couldn’t keep it up since I was working a full time job in a cubicle gig and had just started dating my husband. It quickly fell by the wayside.
Enter Project 52
Project 52 is an abbreviated version of Project 365. Instead of a photo a day I’m taking one photo a week for a year, which seems way more manageable. I’ll be posting them here on the Project 52 page so you can follow along.
If you want to join me or if you’re already doing your own Project 52 leave a note in the comments with a link to your photos. I want to create a list of other 52-er’s so we can stay connected and check out each other’s creations. There are also flickr groups dedicated to Project 52 where you can share, network and get a little inspiration. And if you’re worried about being behind, don’t be. It’s never too late to start…you can either shoot a few extras to catch up or just start now and end a few weeks into 2014. There’s no rule that says you have to start on January 1st. I’m currently posting mine a week after I shoot them so I have plenty of time to edit and make them just so.
Here are my shots for weeks 1 & 2:
This time I’m making no excuses…instead I’m making a promise to myself:
I hereby promise I will finish Project 52.
You’re my witness. If I don’t finish you have my permission to publicly shame me, call me out, point your finger, make me wear a red clown nose all day…you get the idea.
Here goes nothing!
52 Kisses & Chaos,
