“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

January 1st, 2018:
Well... I have just passed photo number 365... and I can't believe how fast this year went.
Looking back at 2017 brings back memories of both very easy shots and very difficult ones among my 365 photos, and I guess you could say that this project has turned into a photographic diary of sorts.
My main goal for starting this photo project (getting to know my cameras really well) was reached not even half way in, but this year of photography has brought me so much more than that - I have definately grown as a hobby photographer and I have discovered a true passion for using vintage Russian camera lenses from the 60's and 70's together with my two mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M5 cameras - the creative possibilities using these lenses are just too irresistible - so - I guess that what I'm trying to say is that I've decided to join the 365 family in 2018 as well :-).

July 2017:
Before taking on this 365-challenge I didn't even know such a thing excisted, but in December 2016 I stumbled across the photo project of another Danish hobby photographer and was facinated by the concept. This combined with me buying two new cameras in November and December 2016 made me think that a 365 challenge would be the perfect way for me to really get to know my new cameras... and now I'm half way through the year and my conclusions is: My plan succeeded... I now know my cameras like the back of my hand and the lenses as well. This project has definately made me grow as a hobby photographer both regarding the technical aspects but also regarding composition and being able to follow my vision as a hobby photographer.

A bit about myself: I'm 48 years old (wow... how did that happen...? Feels like I was 28 just yesterday???), I live in Aalborg, Denmark. I'm working in the IT-department placed under the The Department of Care for the Elderly and Disabled in Aalborg Municipality as an IT and Data Security consultant, and I'm married to my soul mate and best friend and I feel blessed for every day I get to share with him. We don't have any kids, but share our home and life with two Turkish Van cats and I couldn't imagine a life without them either :-).

I take photographs every day but may not always get around to posting it here that same day, since I work full time and some days are just more hectic than others :-).
And I may not always get around to post an answer to all the lovely comments you post for me on my photos, but please don't take that in a negative way, because I read every word and I'm very thankful to every one of you who have taken the time to post a comment, I really appreciate it.
