“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.” - Elliott Erwitt

365 certainly teaches you that. To take a photo everyday means looking for something interesting in the ordinary, even if you think you've done it before. I finished my 1st year at end Dec 2014, 2nd in Dec 2015 and started but did not finish 3rd year in 2016.

Jan 2017 update: Hmmm, I want to come back, I miss this place so much. So I will do what I can and see how it goes.. no big plans, no promises... Time is not always as abundant as I'd like it to be, so I've also decided that rather than thanking you all individually for comments (which I appreciate so much), I'd rather spend time commenting on your projects.

Me: I'm live in a small town in the Eastern Cape, South Africa and I have been taking photos since 1997 when I bought my first film SLR. Photography is my biggest passion and with digital it is even more fun! I know that I still need to learn a lot, learn and do! Comments, feedback and constructive feedback are always welcome. I appreciate it all!

Annual updates
2016 sees me taking on a lot more responsibility at work. That means less time than I would like for 365. Even though as an ACE member I have 4 albums, I am already struggling to fill my main one. 365 is a community that relies on friends and followers and commenting. I will try my very best to comment as much as I can, when I can. Please forgive me if it doesn't happen every day. Thank you to everyone who follows my project every single day and takes the time to stop and make a comment, click on fav or make a remark that has me smiling.

End 2014: I've certainly had some very creative times and some very low times (especially when I was finishing my doctoral dissertation), but I got through my first year thanks to this wonderful community and their amazing support!
