365: The 2011 Edition (One Day at a Time)

It certainly feels wonderful to have made it to 2011. New Years were never significant to me until 1999 when I was only 11 and it was widely thought that the world as we know it was going to come to an end at the dawn of the new millennium.  Nothing happened. I have lived 11 more years and doomsday has now moved to December 21, 2012.

I am not convinced that anyone is aware of when exactly the world will end and I do not think it matters whether we know or not. What we all know that we will die sooner or later, thus it is important to take life one day at a time and try to enjoy every bit of it while it lasts. It is also essential that we take care of the earth we have been endowed with, and try to make it as safe as possible for those who will use it after we have departed.

If you have been following my last few posts, you will have realised that photography is among my hobbies. I have decided to, for 2011, take a photo on each day of the year in order to document my life and develop my skills. The first week was quite interesting, I was greatly discouraged at the start of it and I had a few sick days as well but I persevered. I hereby invite you to accompany me on the journey.

Happy New Year

    Very nice photos and I am pretty sure the world will end on the day I die. :-) Then again, I could be a little off on this one.

    it’s sad but i have to say I’d never make it through a 365 day challenge.

    When I get a new DSLR I hope to take it in baby steps, starting with a 7 day challenge then a 30 day then a 90 day etc.

    Good luck though, I’ll be following through flickr!

    […] started off 2011 with high hopes that at the end of the year I would have taken 365 photos – one for each day – as a documentation of my life and to combat boredom. At the […]
