I first heard of the 365 project when a friend of mine took part a few years ago, and I've been toying with the idea on and off since then. Inspired by her and a few other friends taking on this and other daily challenges, I finally decided to give it a go.

I've been a bit lazy with my photography over the last few years as my husband is so keen - I tend to just sit back and enjoy the views whilst he does the photo taking! I've also always liked the idea of keeping a daily diary, but again not been so good at actually doing it - can you see a pattern forming here?! So I'm looking at this as more of a photo diary than anything, and a personal challenge to actually commit to doing it every day. There will be days when I don't upload that day's photo, especially as we're travelling on and off so don't always have internet access, and I am committing to actually taking a photo every day anyway. They'll likely come in as batches when I'm busy, as have the last week's!

I only use a point and shoot at the moment, and indeed take quite a lot of photos with my iphone, as that's what I always have on me. Interestingly I find the iphone better for some shots, such as sunsets - the colours seem to come out better than on my little Sony Cybershot. Perhaps I'll learn more about "proper" photography as I go on - I'm already having to look up new jargon as I read through some of the discussions and challenges!

I also don't have much in the way of editing/processing other than being able to crop and sharpen the colours a tad, that's about my limit at the mo! Looking forward to learning more about that as well.

So here I am, warts and all - I look forward to meeting some of you on my journey!
