One year

One year.
It can be a long time, or flash by in the blink of an eye. I guess it all depends on your point of view. And this time my point of view was through a camera lens. Err... so to speak.
A year ago today I started a 365Project. I thought taking a picture every day would be a fun way to get better photography skills while documenting some of my life. Well, out of the 366 days in the year (leap day),  I took 337 pictures. Not perfect, but not too shabby.

Here are some of my favourite shots:

Things I've learned?
1) I still, in general, suck at taking pictures. Taking good pictures takes TIME.
2) It's easier and more useful than you'd think to have so many random pictures. There's been tons of times when it's been useful to have a record of my life.
3) Taking a picture every day, in some ways, makes you look at the world differently. I'll notice more little things. The details of them.

So, will I do it again? Yeah. Probably.
At least for another year...

I think the barn pic is AWESOME! And where are the sunflowers?
