Back in 2009, a friend brought to my attention Project 365, a way to document your year through photographs, typically starting on January 1st. I thought it was a fun idea, and though it was already September when I heard of Project 365, I took part in it anyway. Eventually, I got too lazy to take photos every day, and resolved to begin it properly on January 1st 2010. But in the chaos of New Year’s celebrations, I neglected to take a photo and, again, resolved to begin the project the next year.
A conversation with Jane led us both to decide to take part in Project 365 in 2011, both with polaroids and with notebooks made specifically for three hundred and sixty-five journal entries. Now 2010 is coming to a close, and I’m anticipating the photo I’ll take on January 1st, 2011 to kick off my Project 365. My photos will document a year of firsts, challenges and milestones both in my life and in the lives of the people that make up my world.
