Day 365 of 365 days

For 365 days I’ve taken a picture every day. It became a kind of way of living. A picture is easily taken, but to show up every day with nice picture was sometimes a big challenge.

Through the year I learned a lot. Usually I have to take loads of pictures from a subject/situation before I am satisfied. Now it takes me a few clicks. A lot of times I was suprised by a picture and very happy with this project because otherwise I never had taken that picture. Like this one.

To post 365 pictures in a row on a blog is also dealing with the thought what I want to share from my life with the ‘whole world’. I think more bloggers are struggling with this dilemma. So I decided not to post very private pictures from my family or others.

This project gave me new friends and learn from the different way of living. My meeting with Doniene and her husband Mike was a highlight of these 365 days.

Every picture is taken on the day I posted it. Some I had to post a few days later because I didn’t have connection or computer by hand. Except… and here is my confession: Day 220. I didn’t take a picture on day 220. In my opinion I had to stop this project and start again. But then I thought that my readers will forgive me. Nobody is perfect. I was already so far. I took 2 pictures on day 221.

 A lot, really a lot of pictures didn’t make it to be posted, while they are beautiful. I had to make a choice.

Picture 365 is my camera which traveled with me in my purse to a lot of places in the Netherlands, but also to Germany, Belgium, England, France and even the US. I will miss the weight of it on my shoulders. (914 gram, almost a kilo). I love this camera.

 I still want to learn more about photography so maybe I come back with a '365 days blog in black and white' or something. I have more ideas in my mind. For now I will take a time out and you can follow me on my main blog ‘ Quilting with the Past’. I have a photography blog. I will open it again and I will post a picture once in a while.

Thank you all for your visits, comments and emails. Your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you.
 I would love to hear which picture of all 365 is favorite to you.

 'Lucy’s 365 days' is a diary of 365 days in my life.

Day 340 of 365 days

We live close to an airport and a long time I have a picture in my mind of traffic with cars and a plane. Every time when I come across that point the plane isn't there, or I don't have my camera with me.(the last is very frustrating) I have 25 days to go for that picture :-)

 (BTW This isn't the picture I have in my mind)
