I started 365 at the end of January 2011, scary don't you think ?

If you read my lengthy profile notes you will see how my photography has changed throughout my time here
YEAR 12 and 13 : I have reached 400 strangers, I love my strangers project , traded my full frame Sony A7 for an APSC Sony A6700 (summer 2023)

YEAR 11 : I thought I might get to 300 strangers, but I got to 295, Covid restrictions limiting my street time. I am all Sony now, A7 , A6000 and the beautiful little RX100VII

YEAR 10: I reached the milestone of 250 strangers !

YEAR 9 : I completed round 2 of 100 strangers i.e. i reached 200 strangers. It took me 4 years to reach the 200 milestone. In January 2020 I put an expired black and white film into my Olympus OM20 SLR ...should be interesting !

YEAR 8 : I discovered the joy of shooting with vintage lens attached to my modern Sony A6000. Manual focussing, aperture priority via the aperture ring, quite old school photography on a DSLR :)

YEAR SEVEN : Saw me complete my 100 strangers project and move into my second set of 100 strangers. I also bought a mirrorless camera, the beautiful Sony A6000 (highly recommended)

YEAR SIX : 100 strangers and street photography , together with 100% RAW shooting on my DSLR'S seems to sum up year 6.

YEAR FIVE : Completed 50 mono portraits, now doing a 100 Strangers Project.

YEAR FOUR : Major change in year FOUR is that I started a mini project of 50 mono portraits with my 50mm lens. I should finish the project during year FIVE

YEAR THREE : Pretty much like year two i.e. 'post / update photos when I can', that said I did seem to manage 4 or 5 updates per week which is pretty good. I got quite into post processing via GIMP and a fantastic plugin named G'MIC in year three.

YEAR TWO UPDATE : After completing my 365, I took a few weeks break from the daily update of images. After the 'break' I came back for a second year, but year two will be 'post / update photos when you can', because (a) taking photos during the week is difficult due to rules at work regarding 'cameras on site' and (b) the daily update of photos sort of gets in the way of 'real life' .

Whenever I post I'll comment too, because the banter and camaraderie on 365 is what makes the experience worthwhile
