Maybe I am a few days too early to be writing about my photoaday project, but I am anyway. Today is day 358 of 365 and the last few weeks have been the hardest. I don’t know if I am just getting tired of taking a photo every single day, or if I have finally run out of things to photograph. My last few photo entries have been, well, have been pretty boring really. In my iphoneography defense, I have been so busy lately, that the day is almost over before I even remember to take a pic.
I started this project mostly as a different way to document my life for a year, in addition to the daily journal I already keep. Towards the end of 2013, however, I slacked completely with my daily journal entries relying solely on the small description I had added to each daily photo, which is in an app on my phone. Now I am wondering how to get the photos and daily blurbs to a place where I can look back and review my life, should the need arise. The only thing I can think of is to just upload the photos in order to my computer and go from there.
Taking a photo a day was not hard, remembering sometimes was, especially on the weekends when I tend to use my phone the least. Sometimes on Saturdays, I don’t even have it with me, so most days my Saturday photo is of the dog, blurry and dark.
I only have about 10 days in which I didn’t take a photo, not too bad considering it has been almost a whole year – I did much better than I thought I would. I liked doing this project, but should I do it again, I think I will use my regular camera. Iphones take pretty good pictures for being a phone, and all of the photo apps make it fun and easy to edit your pictures, but for me, there’s nothing like a real camera!
Now that this photo challenge is about over, maybe I can talk my boy into letting me take a photo a day of him for the next three years, so when he is older we can watch how he’s changed. I’ve seen some neat youtube videos like this, and I have wanted to do it for a while. I wonder if he’ll go for it…
Here are a couple of my favorite photos from the last year. (I know a few of these may have already shown up somewhere on this blog, but I am going to go ahead and show them again.
How many of you use your phone cameras more than a regular one? Any phone editing apps that are your absolute favorites?
