Time for the last of three one-a-day postings to close out 2018, where I write about some of the pictures of September and October (November and December will be commented on in the new year). These two fall months are often quite pretty in this part of the world with all the changing colors in nature, so photographic opportunities are definitely out there (assuming you don’t shoot mostly black and white film as I do now of course! ;-)Read More
It’s no secret that I've taken quite a long break from posting stuff this year...especially for those few who followed my Instagram 365 project on Instagram. The last post I did on that one was on May 1st. Like I said in my last blog post; for a variety of reasons I ran out of the urge to upload things, so that account became dormant along with many other online outlets of mine.
However I didn’t stop taking photos during the “downtime”, so I still have pictures for my yearlong project. They’re posted here in galleries on my website instead of in one big gloop of pictures on Instagram, because it would be wrong to spam the heck out of that account with all the pictures!Read More
Since today is April 1st (and don't worry, this is a 100 percent April Fools free blog post) it is time for another wrap-up of this year-long project, the third in this "series". March was a month with some challenges on the personal front, so it was not the easiest to keep the project going, but somehow I kept going and managed to put this third month of the year behind me, making one fourth of the thing done.Read More
2018 is just shy of three weeks old as I write this on January 20 and if you happen to follow me on Instagram (instagram.com/tomasnilssonfoto), Twitter (twitter.com/tomnilsson) or Facebook (facebook.com/TomasPhotos) you may have noticed that there has been a few daily Instagram photo postings from me under the #instagram365 hashtag since January 1.Read More
This is my 12th and final Wrap-Up post for the year-long project I had during 2016. That means that for 366 straight days I was able to take, edit and post a picture on Instagram. (that's bending the truth a bit though about the take a picture part...there were days when I didn't take the actual picture but had to resort to using the "archive").
I'll probably do a whole year retrospective blogpost in a little while, once the project has sort of settled in my mind, so this will be "just" a December wrap-up in the same vein as the previous ones; a cover image and then some pictures from the last month's batch.Read More
So...here it is, my last but one wrap-up post for this year's project. I've done well over 330 pictures so far on something I quite honestly wasn't sure I'd be able to complete. I've got a habit of starting projects that I end up not finishing for various reasons. But this one has stuck with me for 11+ months now. I have no intention to quit now that I'm so close to the "goal", and in fact in the last few days I've toyed with the idea of keeping it up into next year.Read More
Once again it's time to do a monthly wrap-up on my yearlong photo project. This was the tenth month in a row of taking, editing and posting an image every day via Instagram. This month also meant I passed the completely arbitrary, but still somewhat impressive, 300th image of the year. As before I've picked 5 images plus a "cover" to write a bit more about them.Read More
Outside the colors have just started to turn towards yellow, red and brown rather than various shades of green, which means that the summer months are now just about over. It's also time for my eighth wrap-up post for this year's "one picture per day project".
As before I have one "cover image" and five other images that I write a little bit more about. If you're interested in seeing more of my Instagram 365 project all the images can be found under each month if you click the Instagram 365 menu on the left.Read More
Another month has gone by and we're now into June of my 365 year. Soon I'll even be halfway to the finish line, and it still feels like fun, although it's a bit of a challenge to come up with something new every day, something you've not shot before. But hey, that's part of the fun, to challenge oneself a bit.Read More
This week’s blog post is not going to have any new photographs, since I’ve not done all that much of it lately. You get into a “lull” at times...and that’s nothing to worry about. It’ll come back soon enough. I am still doing my 365 project and have no plans on leaving that until December 31. :-)
Instead I’m going to write about something that is a part of my (almost) daily routine: listening to podcasts.Read More
