Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

I couldn't wait until January 1st


I am pretty stoked about this Project 365 and spent last night setting up the blog.  I've decided to start the shooting early.  Maybe this will provide a few "sick days" during the course of the year if/when I just can't get a shot done.

What better way to kick off a Project 365 than with a self-portrait. I wanted to take an image involving two of my hobbies; photography & cycling.  So on this snowy morning, I set the tripod up in the garage and the mountain bike on the driveway and fired off a few self-timer shots.

1 day down, 364 to go.
