Project 365: Week 1

Our Project 365 Photos, Week 1
My fiancé Robbie and I decided last month that it would be really inspiring and fun to take part in Project 365 for 2011.  If you're not familiar with its premise, it's very simple: you take one photo, everyday, for one year.  At the end of the year, you have a lovely visual history of your life during that year. 

Robbie and I both adore photography, and I'm really excited to see how we do.  For one thing, the concept of creating for fun - not just for work - is almost like meditation for me, and is a wonderful way to overcome creativity block.  Our goal is to enjoy this little experiment as much as possible without putting too much pressure on ourselves.  (Robbie is on the road for over half the year with his band, and between my blogs, Mountains of the Moon, and Bubby and Bean Art, I don't have much in the way of free time).  We set only one rule: to do our very best, and be happy with whatever we've accomplished on December 31st, 2011. 

Are you participating in Project 365 or a similar project? 

Happy Saturday!
