Introduction

I heard about the Project 365 from my friend Brooke (three days ago) and thought that it was a good idea and that I should play along. We'll see how it goes. I love the idea and we'll see how I do.

The basic idea is simple:

Take a picture every day. Post it online.

The practicality of it may be a little trickier, but I'm going to try. I have a great camera (Canon Rebel DSLR) and I have multiple great photography books (including one I just got this year for Christmas) so I have that going for me.

I have a wonderful family to photograph and we'll be traveling to Ethiopia and bringing our daughter home this year and wouldn't it be awesome to have such great documentation of her first few months home with us? Plus, I do take a lot of pictures anyway. I just have to be a little more regular about it. I can do it. Right?

The biggest problem will be posting them because it requires using our old dumpy desktop computer upstairs. Blech. I figure even if I post a week's worth of pictures at a time it would be okay.

Let the challenge begin!!
