This is the first of hopefully many posts for my new project for the year. The idea seems simple enough: just take one picture a day and then post my week's labors every Sunday. The bigger goal for me is to keep my camera from becoming a dormant bag-dweller and to force my creative horizons beyond dozens of pictures of our dog and, when the boys come, zillions of pictures of them. To me, photography has become a new way to express the way I see the world around me, a challenge beyond the typical medium of words that I'm used to. With my Rebel as my trusty sidekick, I want to see beyond what I see, capture cultural nuances, and reveal realities of life here. Hopefully, my photography skills will get better along the way and at the end of it all, I'll have a portfolio of the craziness that 2011 is shaping up to be.
Most people call this kind of thing Project 365, ie-one picture a day equals 365 pictures. But then again, most people don't have issues with being indecisive like I do and actually start their project on January 1. My project started on January 13, hence then name Project 353.
So here are my first shots:
