Part two of 365 Photo Project

I'm posting the second half of the year of my 365 Project and we're now into the second
week of January 2011 and I feel like I'm missing something from my life, because it had really become a good habit to remember to take 'that photo' every day .

I havn't yet made the commitment to even start the project late, not that it really needs to be started at any particular time, as I'm not sure I want to do that exact project again, perhaps something different, like a photo of myself every day (could be cringey) or make something every day like Noah Scalin tells us about, which is very inspiring , but extremely daunting too, and I'm tempted, but if I'm brutally honest, I'm scared of the commitment for that one too.

I'm extremely indecisive this week, so maybe next week I'll take the plunge and go for another 365 'something'.

Does anyone have any suggestions they can throw my way?

A photo a day for a whole year - Part One

Well I finally finished my year of taking one photograph each day - my 365 Project.
It wasn't just about taking a photo a day, but making it a meaningful photo every day, something that would remind me of that day when I looked back at it and something
to record a feeling or event that happened.

Some days it was really easy and some days it was hard to be inspired, overall it was a really enjoyable project, and I only cheated ( forgot to take a photo on a particular day, and added one from a different day ) a few times through out the 365 days. I like most of the photos but not all of them were something I would have posted if it hadn't been for the project.

I started the year just using my Nikon D50 , but I got my iphone in late january which helped to give me some good 'vintagey' looking shots with the many apps that I've become obsessed with.

I am posting the first five 36 grouped photos and will post the rest in my next blog post.
I was going to explain some of them , but I have trouble editing my thoughts and feelings, so I'll leave that to you .
All the titles are in my flickr set of the project.
