Project 365 - day 4

My friend Natalie told me about a photo-a-day challenge that she had read about at Scrap Artist and I was intrigued too. I popped over to Photojojo and read up about it, here is what they say about it

"Why do it?
Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:

Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!)

Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.

Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, you’ll start to care about lighting, and you’ll become more creative with your photography when you’re forced to come up with something new every single day."

Sounds good doesn't it? So I thought why not? I'm not the best photographer in the world and I could do with some more practice. I hope it helps me to look at things around me differently!

I'm adding my project 365 to my existing blog under it's own label but Natalie and many of the others have created a seperate blog for the project (I'm too lazy LOL)!

So I know I'm starting a bit late but here is my first photo of my project 365 which is technically day 4!

The recent rain while not breaking the drought has bought some lovely visitors to my backyard - these adorable little mushrooms.

Good luck with the project! I'm 42 days into a self-portrait-a-day project at Flickr. It's quite the challenge some days, but what I'm finding most interesting is that by putting my camera in my hands every day, I'm taking more photos in general, not just of myself.

What a great idea! I'd love to do it, but I'm going to struggle enough with our Encyclopaedia of me! LOL
