365 Days

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.

Watching (365:267).

Notes – Facilitation, dealing with problems, finding solutions, this is what I do.

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.

Flickr meet (365: 217)

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

NIFOC (395: 192).

365: 187 Reject.

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

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

Mirror, Mirror (365: 141) – across the arcade and backed into an alcove for a better angle and something to lean against. I was just about to leave when I realised I was sandwiched between two mirrors. +2

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

Polling Day (365: 117) – Local council elections, and Gary does his civic duty.

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, +3

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

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