52 weeks and the first four

Yes, it's been a while since I've posted here. Lots going on keeping me busy and it seemed hard to justify the time to sit down and compose something worth posting when there were so many things that needed to get done.

So anyway, the other day, I wandered over to my Flickr stream and ended up wandering through a bunch of my Project 365 pictures and it made me remember how cool an exercise it was. The downside, of course, is that it totally burned me out on taking pictures and 2010 was largely a wash. I also found I was trying to take "interesting" pictures, which was great in that it was a great way to work on my creativity and sense of visual composition, but also a problem because I'd often find when we saw friends that afterwards I'd have a bunch of pictures of food or things I'd see in our surroundings but no pictures of our actual friends. Oops.

I decided that it was worth doing *something* this year and I figured I'd take what I learned from the last experiment and take the pressure down a notch. So this year, I'm going to try and have at least one postable picture a week and cut myself some slack when it comes down to what I mean by weeks. (I'd say that I might get creative, but I'm pretty sure there's that OCD part of my personality that isn't going to let me pull any fast ones, except maybe the first week which actually worked out to 9 days.)

So here are the other pictures from the first four weeks:
