The 365 Daily Picture Project
In 2014 I took on a daily photo challenge with my cell phone as the capturing, editing AND uploading device to Instagram, because “the best camera is the one you’ve got with you”, and I always have my phone with me (much to the chagrin of my loved ones at times). I ran out of steam on that project in July of that year and didn’t finish it, due to the shortcomings of my phone camera.
2016 was my second attempt and this time I did reach 366 images, one for every day of that year (including February 29th). All these pictures are now in a gallery on Flickr if you want to peruse them (or on Instagram if you are willing to scroll that far back).
I didn’t do another daily pic challenge in 2017; it would only feel like a repeat, so my IG posts that year were much more infrequent. It wasn’t until I switched to a new phone in November 2017 that I thought “hey…this camera isn’t bad, perhaps I should do a daily challenge again during 2018…”
I’ve renamed this project since I began in January, because there’s a void in my postings on Instagram from May onward. This was due to a break from social media that lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. It just doesn’t feel right to call it an Instagram 365 project after that. I am going to restart uploading pics to that account again soon, but the galleries on this site will have ALL the pictures for the year, including the ones taken during my social media hiatus.
