On New Year’s Eve 2009 I decided I would do a photo project; a photo a day for 365 days. I would start on January 1st and finish 365 days later on December 31st 2010. How simple – I wouldn’t have to do any mathematical calculations to figure out where I was. Except …. I forgot to take my very first photo! LOL.
So … my project started on January 2nd and now, in the interests of full disclosure, I will explain how it still came to be finished today. A trip to Australia and that funky little thing called the International Dateline is the reason.
When I flew to Australia I knew I would be losing a day on the way so I took a photo of the horizon as we hurtled over the Pacific Ocean. On my last day in Australia I took a photo and on my first day back in America I took a photo – they just happened to have the same date! As I had experienced both days I considered them to be separate shots in my project.
So without further ado – the final set!
361: – Off to work I went the day after the forecasted “big storm” non-event. These are roads fully treated with salt and chemicals, waiting for snow that did not arrive: Obviously I’m the only person who went to work on Monday!
364: A young man knocked on the door and said that he was selling items to raise money to go to a workshop on how to stay away from drugs! I bought a couple of candles for $4 though I couldn’t help being a little skeptical…
365: New Year’s Eve morning walk … I wanted to find a bottle shop with champagne in the window – it was not to be but I will leave you with the two windows I found.
A New Year can be rung in with whatever you fancy. So ring it in with gusto! Happy New Year everyone – I hope 2011 is a good year for you.
