A few years ago, several people had the brilliant idea that it would be fun to document a whole year in photos - one photo per day. The idea resonated, and soon thousands of people all over the world were documenting their lives one day at a time. I followed along, on and off, via Flickr and other websites, but never participated.
Until this year.
Naturally, in keeping with my slow start in 2009, I didn't start on January 1st... or 2nd... or 3rd. Nah. I started 9 days ago. How's that for fashionably late?
The daily challenge of taking at least one photograph has been surprisingly enjoyable. It has motivated me to carry my camera with me more often, and I find that I'm paying closer attention to things that I might otherwise have rushed past. It has also helped me to silence my inner critic, knowing that I've committed to posting something, even if it's not "good" or doesn't live up to my artistic standards.
What's even more fun is to see the photos others are taking and what they're discovering on the other side of their lenses. It's a party, of sorts.
Want to play along? Button up your pretty dress & slip on your shiny shoes. It's never too late to join!

Here are a few fun 365 photo sets I've found by people I've never met. Completely random.
Careful - if you get lost in Flickr, you might never find your way back to the real world.
Happy Friday the 13th...
