A Nifty Project in 2015

For a few years now I have participated in a yearly photo project. Participate being the key word.

In the first year, I tried to tackle the monstrous 365 Project. In this one you take a photograph and post it…

Every! Single! Day!

I think I made it to Day 56. And believe me, that was a stretch.

Day 11- First day of Digital Photography Class

The next year, I joined a Project 52 group. Because, surly, one photo a week is a heck of lot easier than three-hundred and sixty-five.

And it was.

But still…

As great as I started out.
Celebration - Week 1 of Project 52

Crafting and posting my shots.

Project 52: Week 45 - Motion

I just couldn’t seem to make it to the end.

Project 52: Week 49  - Red

Year after year.

Project 52: Week 7 - Love  (2) Self- Portrait Project 52 - 6/52 - Somebody  you love

This year was best run yet! I’d like to believe the only reason it failed was due to the moderator of the group up and disappearing.

Poof.

It kinda takes the wind out of your sails when the project (and most of the participants) come to a screeching halt on Week 47 (or so).

And yes, I could have kept going. I could have made myself journey on.

Project 52: Week 36 - Big

But I didn’t.

I quit too.

And I failed, yet again.

Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure… it just means you haven’t succeeded yet. ~Robert Schuller

Or maybe?

I just didn’t succeed (yet!).

Project 52: Week 37 - Nostalgia

But here comes a NEW YEAR. A year of great promise. A year of new! Hello 2015! I have NO PLANS to quit you. And this year, I will FINISH a Project 52. I joined a new group where I will post a photo on Flickr every week (based on the theme created by administrators). I happen to know these gals. I know their creativity. I KNOW their dedication. There is no doubt in mind about this project and the completion thereof.

SO!

Care to join me?

Shall we travel this path together?

Project 52: Week 15 - In a Row

Who knows what we will find?

I promise it will be worth the adventure.

Project 52: Week 3 - A Favorite Toy

Here is all you need to know (and links!) The what, the where,and the when.

    The what. A Project 52. It requires you take a new photo every week and post it on
    Flickr. This one is using a 50mm lens.

    The when. It starts the very first week of the year (52 weeks- get it?). You will take a photo and post to the Project 52 group. There are themes of the week waiting for your creation. At the end of the week, a few favorites are chosen. They will be featured on this blog.

I would love to see you there. And if you don’t want to take part, you can follow me as I post my weekly images here.

All the images I have used in this post are from earlier photography projects.

I promise a lot of fun, a lot of great images, and a little push in stretching your photographic creativity.

  1. I tried that Project 52. And although the project stated it was for everyone, and EVERYONE was very nice and kind . . . . my photographs were so amateur I gave up. Even though it is only ONE photograph a week, it would take a lot of time if I wanted to at least TRY to have a good photo. And some of those photos . . . . HOLY MOLY. And looking and commenting and everything . . . it takes time, so

    Good luck. You can do it!
