365:2007

365 Days – a project to take a self portrait every day for a year. The rules are simple. I must be visible in the picture, and I must take the picture. This is my first complete 365 days project. All I had to help me get into the pictures was a 10 second timer. It’s surprising how fast you can get at getting into position!

Apart…(365:270) – for now. A collaborative picture with Ginger.

Many hands mean no work gets done (365: 242) – I have important things to do, so how do I spend my time? Ignoring the important stuff in the vain hope it’ll go away while I play with my camera and Photoshop.

Bi-centenary celebrations (365: 202) – 200 days deserves a bit of a song and a dance.

Fresh (365: 175) – And that’s all I have to say about that. 2 pictures

Stunned (365:171) – This is what it looks like when the financial rug is unexpectedly pulled out from under you. One-minute read, 5 pictures

Denouement (365: 161) – This morning I told Elaine I wanted a divorce. One-minute read

Calm Centre (365: 135) – Many years ago I visited this spot at a time when I needed to make an important decision. I also needed a place and memory to act as a calm reference point to carry with me and help in the years to come. Two-minute read, 2 pictures

A quick break (365: 118) – Chasing out for the electrics, I took a quick break for today’s picture.

An Englishman’s shed is his Castle (365: 113) – I’ve never had a shed before, but now I’ve got two. This one for a workshop and another for my spare timber, paint, empty boxes, and disused electronics that one day might come in useful etc. 2 pictures

Disappointing (365: 109) – Re-edited, so no longer straight out of camera. However, I think this is a much better picture.

Modesty (365:108) – My ‘artistic’ notion was to challenge the idea of modesty. Can a naked person be modest? One-minute read, 4 pictures

Saturday in the sun (365: 105) – Just for a change I thought I’d take a picture straight after coming home from the traditional Saturday morning shopping (more nice ties bought), and before enjoying an afternoon basking in the sun. One-minute read, 5 pictures

Looking for… (365: 103) – heaven knows, but I’ve not found it. I’d settle for a couple of photo ideas. 2 pictures

On the beach (365: 99) – I had to wade into the sea, to get one shot, so I thought I might as well take my 365 days self-portrait at the same time … One-minute read, 3 pictures

Firelight (365: 98) – It was 27°C (81°F) in the shade here today, so what better way to celebrate in the cooler evening than sitting by the fire with a glass of wine. 4 pictures

What a Difference a Beer Makes – Product Placement (365: 96) – Today Thursdays and the 365 days project conspired to really get me down.

Tempting (365: 94) – 365 days can do this to you…

And why not? (365: 93) – My planned 365 days picture was okay, but too mundane, so I took this.

Break (365: 90) – Work on renovating the hall has begun. Today we took down the ceilings on the middle and ground landings and my work room. we also took out the wall between the landing and my work room.

Just Me (365: 88)

Annual Returns, Accounts, and Invoicing – Oh My! (365: 85) 2 pictures

Bliss (365: 84) – Oh the benefits of a sheltered, south facing, garden when there is a cold wind blowing from the north.

Thursdays (365: 82) – I recently wrote that I had yet to capture the ‘essence’ of myself. This, I think might be it.
