365 Days of Photos – Almost

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?

  1. I read this a few days ago and meant to write a comment – sorry for waiting so long. I am loving your pictures here, they really are gorgeous. And I know what you mean, sometimes taking a picture every day is just so tedious. But it’s kinda worth it at the end. Keep it up! 🙂

    Oh and I have an app to remind me to take a pic every day. It helps. 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting! I love to look back on pictures, the memories they bring are so wonderful! I have the app with the reminder, but never bothered to set it up to remind me. Thinking about now, I really should have. Oh, well, it is too late now.

  2. LOVE that first photo! I have never been able to follow through with a 356 or even a 52 project…I’ve given up on them for the time being but I always love following everyone else’s 🙂

    1. They are one of my favorite challenges to follow, and there are plenty of people who start so it is really an easy topic to keep an eye on. Thank you for your comment. I am glad you like my photo, and coming from you it is definitely a compliment, I always love your photos. 🙂

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
