A Photo A Day

Last year I subscribed to and viewed often the 366photo group and wondered if I could possibly manage a photo a day myself. Spurred on by the commitment of those in the group I thought why not start a group and invite friends and colleagues to participate. I did consider joining the larger group – which this year has become very large – but decided I wanted a bit more of personal touch and to at least begin this experience with those that I know.

I have managed five days so far and already I can see that it will be difficult to manage a photo a day – but I am keeping my eyes open and maybe beginning to look at the world in a new way. I hope to that over the course of the year I will become better acquainted with my camera and begin to play with a photo editing program. I am delighted that others have begun to post – some of my friends and colleagues are very talented – but even more important is that this can be another way of building community; of sharing our knowledge,  our expertise and even a little of ourselves.

Stop by and see our photos on flickr.

  1. What a great idea to put this in your blog! I’m totally going to copy that idea – maybe it will keep me going with it! I’m looking forward to seeing your photos this year!

  2. My digital camera has almost become like an extension of my hand…
    I carry it daily and take it everywhere I go. As a result, I have found the best pictures were the ones I wasn’t looking for.
    Many of the photos end up in student assignments and they know if they see something that no one sees they can capture it with my camera or their own which I allow on field trips, outdoor classes etc as the need for photos is so necessary on SlideShare, VoiceThread, digital story telling etc.
    In fact just today, my class shot 35 photos for a virtual field trip we are planning to take our Reading Around the Planet collaborators on tomorrow.
