A Day in the Life of Joe

What do you enjoy about this project?  Being able to look back anytime in the years from now and recall what I did on that particular day of the year.  It brings mindfulness into my day and reminds me to slow down and enjoy a moment of my life in time.

Is there something you takeaway from doing this project every year?

I know and I have heard that "Taking a photo a day will make you a better photographer. Using your camera every day will help you learn its limits. You will get better at composing your shots, you’ll start to care about lighting, and you’ll become more creative with your photography when you’re forced to come up with something new every single day." - from the photojojo website.  But I.....always come up with different excuses ...there’s nothing interesting left to take a photo of, or thinking I haven't done anything exciting enough to take a photo. But there is always a great photo to be made and sometimes I just wish I can capture it with blink of my eye. This project forces me to carry my camera (on and ready) everywhere on that given day with no excuse. It made me get out of the house and take a walk. It made me stay inside and look around and take a photo of the inside of my house so I can see how my life has changed over the years. I am just grateful to do this project every year because it is therapeutic and I find myself more keenly aware of my blessings and priorities in life when I look back on those photos.
