Day 1: April 5th, 2008

I’ve decided to make a year-long photography commitment – I’m going to take at least one photo per day, every day, for the next year. I haven’t been doing enough photography lately, and this seems like a good way to give myself a “boost.”

I like these guidelines, so intend to follow them:

This is Day 1. I’ll be posting photos to my LiveJournal (and possibly a 365 Opera community); I probably won’t post every day, but will post them at least once a week.

It seemed appropriate to begin the project with a self-portrait; I took this one while playing around in Mac Photobooth.

I know several of my LJ friends have done something similar (or are in the middle of their year right now). I’d love to hear about your experiences! :)

Yeah, my take on the pyramid thing was the same as yours . . . how could they flood that area? Plus, it seems like that would make a BIG impact on tourism to Egypt, which is probably a fairly big industry, isn't it? In any case, I'm glad you've not heard anything about it; I figured that if it was true, you'd have heard something.

I know what you mean about things starting to feel like work. Instead of planning to let myself miss a day now and then, I've decided that I will be okay if some days I just take some crappy picture with my cell phone (or a cheesy self-portrait with Photobooth on the computer, like the one I posted yesterday). I think that will help me feel less pressure. I don't need to do a Big Photoshoot every day. But on the days I'm in the mood for that, I'll have some motivation, I think. Definitely I think you should come along for the ride! You tend to post pictures regularly anyway. :)

Oh, and my picture for today will have an Egyptian theme, since I spent the morning at Rosicrucian Park, which is home to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum.
