I felt a wee bit awkward shooting this. I was crouched down in the grass, behind a tree, wearing a bright orange jacket while two police officers watched. Oh, the things I’m willing do for a mundane photo…
If you don’t know what this is, it’s a power pole guy-wire. It’s my submission to this week’s Just Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Rebekah, Nuvofelt and Mara. Each week, they invite their readers to join them in celebrating the mundane. The idea is to focus on something that is ordinary for you but might not be so ordinary for others.
Last week, in this Just Thursday Blog Hop post, Mara announced that she was making things more challenging for herself by posting a photo snapped with her phone every day. Go, Mara!
Mara’s post motivated me to get started on my own daily photography project. A daily photo journal is something I’ve been considering for a while. I really want to get in the practice of using my camera every single day. I probably won’t post every day though. I shoot in RAW (with my Canon 70D) and I develop all my photos in Lightroom. It might make more sense for me to edit and post my daily photos in batches once or twice a week.
I haven’t yet decided what website I want to use for my endeavour. I know for certain that I don’t want to use this blog—I’d eat up all my free storage space in no time. I’ve considered creating a Facebook (fan) page for it, but I’m not in love with that idea. Right now, I’m seriously considering using a site I discovered on the weekend while searching the net for options— 365project(dot)org. If you use that site, please let me know what you think of it in the comments below, or if you can recommend another free site for this purpose let me know. I should probably mention, before someone recommends Instagram, I don’t have a device compatible with the app—I can’t set up an account.
