my365 or i365?

Well. I've decided to do it.  I've been toying with the idea for several years actually.  But yesterday, I went over the edge.  Not only did I decide to do it, but I started it.  My very own 365 photo project.  I take at least one photo everyday anyway, so I am not sure why this should feel so daunting.  But it does.

Thanks to Maegan over at Life Set To Words for throwing out the final inspiration that brought me to YES.  She is embarking on her second 365 project and is inviting us all along for the journey.

Photobucket

I won't be blogging about all 365 of my photos, but will post them in a set on my flickr page.  My current thinking is that I will blog about my 365 once a week, either with a favorite photo from the week or a collage of highlights, or something--I am still working this part out. I am even considering starting a weekly meme where people can link up to a post about their 365 from the past week (thoughts on that?)....all these possibilities are swimming around my head.

In the meantime, I have begun with a self-portrait of sorts.  This is me at the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.  Actually it is my reflection in the window of the JCrew store there (no, I didn't buy anything).

One other thing I haven't figured out yet is whether I am doing a general 365 using various cameras, or whether I want to do an iPhone 365 to go along with my current obsession with the little devil.  To my365 or i365, that is the question.  I'll keep you posted.

I prefer i365

I'll be interested to see your photos. I love when bloggers do 365 projects. I of course, could never remember to keep my camera on me. Mine would turn out to be like a 150 project! Anyway, good luck! I can't wait to see your pictures!

I'm also in the project *and* was also thinking of doing a weekly post - I think that, given my schedule, I'll stick with it in that format... can't wait to see your photos and I'd love to play along with a meme :)

I'll be watching. And you can't go wrong (though I do love the idea of all the creative ways to use the iPhone camera). : )

Love the idea of i365 but I'd probably want the option to add other photos as well. You're off to an amazing start, this portrait is great. Just wondering, do you have any favorite apps for photos? I like Hipstamatic but I'm always looking for more.

So many people are talking about doing this I am "almost" inspired to do so myself. I just don't function well with obligation! hehe I look forward to seeing your photos though!

Yes! I'm thinking the same as you. I'm probably going to blog my 365 once a week. So fun that you're doing it, too. Was glad to see that you were when you posted it on blog frog. :)
