Group Description

Inspired by 3191 a Year of Mornings ...{Mav and Stephanie are currently doing a Year of Evenings now. The book, "A year of Mornings" can be purchased at book stores if you are interested}

A group to post a year of YOUR mornings.

Group Rules

The A Year of Mornings group is a project in which members submit one image of a morning each day for a year.

You are only allowed to submit one photo for each day. Only one. Feel free to do whatever you want to do within your own set, but only send one to the pool.

You should plan on taking a shot every day for a year. If you miss one or two days, that's fine. If your camera breaks and you miss an entire month, we're not gonna kick you out. But if you take a picture once every five weeks and send it to this group along with every other group on Flickr, your photo will be removed.


Most likely, any further questions you may have can be found below. If you do not find the answer to your question listed here, feel free to create a thread or send a message to any admin.


On What Photos Are Allowed

Any photo taken before noon. Photos of things that are 'very important to you' are fine.

What assistance is allowed?

You can use tripods, timers, or whatever else you need just as long as you take a photo yourself.

Can I use image editing software?

Of course! This is digital photography!

Is nudity allowed?


On Multiple Photos and Missing Days

What if I have more than one photo I'd like to submit for a given day?

Multiple photos for a given day are not allowed. If you would like to use multiple photos or simply wish to draw more attention to the collection, you can either create a mosaic or link to the additional photos in the description of the one which you did choose. Anyone who posts more than a single photo for a given day will have the extra photos removed - repeatedly abusing this rule will result in your removal from the group.

What if I can't post for several days?

Sometimes people go on vacation or experience extended periods of time without power. In these instances, it is ok to upload multiple photos given that the photos uploaded are from different days. To cut down on the amount of pool flooding, a limit of five photos per day has been instituted. If you happen to be unable to upload for more than five days, you can either play catch-up for multiple days until your entire set has been added to the pool or you can simply add your most recent five photos with a link to those photos that have not been added to the pool in the description.

What if I forget to take a photo for several days?

If you go several days without taking any photos, it is entirely up to you as to whether you start the project over again or just leave a gap in your set. If you decide to restart, there is no need for you to remove your old photos from the pool.

Can I just make up the missed days by taking multiple photos on one day?

No. The idea is take one photo each day. If you want to cheat yourself by 'making up' days in this manner, please just keep those photos in your set and choose one to submit to the pool. EXIF data is checked on any photos which seem to be suspicious.


When can I start?

Start whenever you want! You can wait until the first of the year, your birthday, or some other important date - or you can start today!

Do I have to tag my photos?

It is not required that you tag your photos; however, most members use the 'AYearofMornings' tag and it is highly recommended that you use that tag as well.

Do I have to have a A Year of Mornings set for my photos?

Again, this is not a requirement, but it is strongly recommended. This allows people to easily see your progression through the project.

Do I have to comment?

You are not required to comment on any photos; however, you will find the group experience to be more enjoyable if you spend the time to check out and comment on other people's photos.

Why is there a posting limit?

A posting limit has been put into place to keep people from flooding the pool. The posting limit does not mean that you are allowed to post five photos each day - it is simply there to keep people from posting 20+ photos at one time when they return from vacation or whatever circumstances which have prevented them from being able to post their photos on a daily basis. Please review the questions under 'On Multiple Photos and Missing Days' if this is still unclear.
