Hi guys!

I'm Julia and I'm one of your hosts for the 2014 365. Neil was very stubborn while convincing me to do the job again but I really like to do it. I just need all the help I can get from you guys concerning weekly theme ideas. :)

Most of you probably know who I am. I'm the crazy one who's doing her fifth 365 in a row in 2014. It seems that I just can't stop to do it anymore although it's hard sometimes and some of my pictures aren't very inspirational. Ah well, I hope it gets better in 2014.
I'm a huge Doctor Who fan as well and I'm a knitter, just to let you know what you can expect from me.

I hope we'll have a great year together with many old and new Flickr friends.

I'm David, from Greenville, SC (USA). 2014 will be year 3 for me. I did my 1st 365 from April '08 to April '09, then year 2 was during the 2010 calendar year (and that's where I met Julia... not met met, but met her on Flickr ;) ). Year 2 was a selfie-only 365, and after doing a couple "52 weeks" projects, I'm ready to take the plunge into another 365 (but it'll be a general 365, not just self portraits)

I'm a geocacher (for anyone else here who may be), I love to bowl and I have a toy crab named Bowie who you probably will be seeing during my 365. =)

I'll be turning 40 on May 2, so be sure to save that date on your calendar so you can dedicate your 365 pic to me. ;)

2014 will be my fourth 365 in a row. I think I want to get to five in a row, but I guess we will see how that goes!
Not been into photography that long, 2011 was my first 365 and also my first year with an SLR.

Looking forward to seeing everyones shots on Jan 1st : )

I'm Ellen and I live in Decorah, Iowa, USA, a town of 8,000. I did 5 years of 365, missing only 2 shots and those were in the last year. Took a break in 2013 but have come to miss it. The proposed changes to Flickr were distressing to me when they were announced and I haven't posted much. Photos have gone on Facebook instead, but it isn't the same. My challenge will be time management. I want to be a good member of this community, but keep my time on the computer reasonable.

G'day, Deb from Melbourne Australia. This is my third 365-2011, 2013 and now 2014. This is my way of recording my life so I look at it primarily as a journaling experience and second as a photography experience, but being in a group keeps the momentum up. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the world is up too.

Hi! I'm recommitting to a 365! I've attempted some, and finished none, but this is going to be my year, right? I just recently upgraded my camera (well, it was upgraded for me, a lovely gift) and I need to learn how to use it! The first 365 I attempted helped me learn so much! I'm also a Doctor fan, and memory keeping (with words, pictures, and pretty paper) is my passion. I am the mother of a 25 year old and a 4 year old, both girls, and I'm also a GRANDMA! (GASP!)

It's great to see some familiar faces here!!!

Hi, I'm Lisa and I live in Wiltshire, UK, fairly close to Stonehenge. This is my third attempt at a 365, the first in 2010 lasted until April with the second in 2011 being a lot more successful...

I turned 40 a few days ago and have decided that this is going to be a year for getting things done (though other than this I am not sure what those things are!) I have many, many interests that include Geocaching (although I am a fair weather cacher) and I am also a Doctor Who fan (albeit a mad, slightly obsessive one). I also collect Lego Minifigures, so you may see a theme developing over the course of the year :o)

Howdy folks, my name is Jim and, call me crazy, but I'm in. This will be my third consecutive 365. I had previously decided to stop at two, but I know I'll be taking pictures anyway, so why not keep it going.

I am in a couple groups this year so there will be some overlap and I think the variety of themes will help. Nice to see some familiar faces among the new ones. Two more days...let's do this!

Hi all

My name is Mark and I'm an Ex-Pat Brit living in a small town in southern NSW in Australia. This is my fourth attempt at a 365, I've failed for several reasons. Last year I was going really well until I went away on holiday and struggled to catch up with the uploads and editing when I got home. This year WILL be the year.

Recently moved jobs which sees me out and about a lot more instead of being office bound so I'll be lugging my gear and tripod absolutely everywhere with me over the next 12 months. Hope to get to know quite a few of you over the course of 2014.

Hello everybody!

I'm Elle and this will be my very FIRST 365. This seems daunting to me, but I see some of you are veterans -- going on multiple years! Hopefully I will make it. I live near Las Vegas, NV -- there are other cities around there, but no one knows them unless you are a local. It's basically a desert out here.

I want to try to improve my photography and use the "Manual" mode more on my camera this year. Also, it seems over the years the only times I take pictures is when traveling or holiday events (xmas). It would be a good change to take photos of the everyday. Here's to 2014! :)

I'm Eryl, and live in south west Scotland. I attempted my first 365 last year, but didn't complete it. As I stopped making photographs at all once the 365 fell apart I've decided to have another go. I need the impetus of a group to keep my mind on pretty much anything I do, I even forget to eat if left to my own devices. So I hope to start again tomorrow (January 1) hangover notwithstanding, and keep going for the whole year.

I use an Olympus EPL2 (though may have to resort to my phone at times), and tend toward still lifes, but would love to do more landscape photography, and love crumbling buildings. Hoping to do a bit of travelling in 2014, too, so who knows what I'll find to shoot.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's daily shots. Best of luck!

Hey there,

I'm Jack, I will be turning 23 in April this year and I'm from the northernmost capital of the world, Reykjavík, Iceland. I bought my first DSLR, a Canon eos 400d, in the summer of 2007 and upgraded to a 60d in spring 2012. Regrettably that camera hasn't done much other than collect dust on my shelf despite my avid interest in photography. This is where the 365 comes in.

I attempted a 365 last year but didn't even make it through January; I'm aiming at completing it this time 'round. My biggest struggle last year was the limited hours of daylight we get up here in the winter months, but hopefully I'll be able to overcome this first hurdle. Just expect a fair share of long-exposure nighttime shots from me at first ;-) Alongside the 365 I am doing a 52 week challenge and 100x challenge to assist in keeping my head in the game.

I do also have some interests aside from photography. Mainly I like drawing and I hope to one day write and illustrate children's books. Maybe there'll be some workinprogress shots that'll slip into my 365 on the slower days, hah. I live with both a cockatiel and a girlfriend; they're the ladies in my life and undoubtetly will be making an appearance sometime or other. Then you know, the classic stuff, films, tv shows, cooking, some other stuff, not reading so much unfortunately. Okay, I'm probably not making sense anymore...

Aslo, sheep. There's just something about them, they're fantastic animals. And there's a lot of them in Iceland.

Anyway, nice to meet y'all and look forward to seeing all your shots this coming year!

Wow, I'm impressed by how many 365s people have done!! I just thought the other day that I'd give it a go. Being lenient with myself but plan to keep it going even if I miss a few days.... Easy to think about it now, while I'm traveling, have time, taking lots of photographs. I need a little more inspiration when I'm back at home in Massachusetts, USA. Looking forward to inspiration and dedication.

I've had a few aborted previous attempts at Project 365 (my personal best being 200 days in 2007 before getting too stressed about it!) and I've decided it's time to give it another shot to stop my camera drowning under a layer of dust!

Hopefully I can stick with it for the full year this time and get myself motivated by viewing everyone else's images in the group.

I'll apologise in advance for the days when I'm struggling and end up going a bit over-the-top with my processing to compensate for a bad photo :-)

I'm John from Dublin/Ireland and I only started my first 365 last January but missed out on a day around day 200 and stopped only to start over again a week later but have decided to keep going on the count for that 365 but start a calendar year 365 also using the same photos so as to run to the end of the year like most people do.

I shoot everything and anything and I’m a member of Tallaght Photographic Society camera club and my camera or one of my cameras is always with me. Looking forward to seeing what others shoot and post as it’s always interesting to get some ideas from others.

Good luck to everyone starting out and the main thing is to enjoy it.

Hi everyone, from Cynthia in Oregon.
This will be my 4th consecutive 365 but—I missed a few days in each one. Best tip I've seen for succeeding is, Take some pictures early in the day: you may take better shots later, or you may not have time at all. Bearing that in mind, I'll try to reach 365 nirvana this time around. Despite missing days, the 365s have been very rewarding, and it was during the first one that I began learning about my year-old camera and took it off auto.

Looking forward to seeing photos from new and old 365ers, and intending to make time to comment more!
TIM R F: Hope you continue to upload even though you're not in the 365, I enjoy looking at your stuff :-)

Hi everyone. I'm Yasser from Medan, Indonesia.
This is my third attempt in doing 365 project. Last year I failed on day 200 something because there are much backlog on photoshoping and editing, and it make me exhausted. This time I will leave the picture as it is at the camera. If I edit anything, I will add the edited version on the comment area, and it would be from my other account.

Feel free to comment, critiques and supports are much appreciated. I'm looking forward to seeing photos from all 365ers. I also usually comment on other photos, but many times I lost words and cannot say it in english (cause it's not my main language), so I will usually saying "great shot" or favoriting other photos.

Good luck to every one, and happy 365 day shot!

Hi all! I'm Shane from Northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA to those who live here). This is my third full 365; I've done other mini-projects on a theme as well, and had another 365 at one point based around pushing myself and my camera to produce my vision without editing, but I ran out of new ways to push :)

This year I'm focusing on the idea of exploration - going beyond my comfort zone in terms of location/subject/composition and in how I process to achieve my vision. I'm a huge fan of DuChemin's wok on Vision and Voice, and have found my own style, but wish to add some nuances and other tools to my work. Thus, exploration of subject and self! Please feel free to let me know what might have worked better, or other ways a shot could be interpreted!

Concurrently, I am working on a personal project documenting endangered species of North America, a tongue-in-cheek documentation of everyday objects that are rapidly disappearing from our lives; I'm assigning faux Latin genus and species names and anthropomorphizing these objects. There may be some crossover so keep your eyes peeled if that kind of thing interests you!

Good luck to all!

Apologies for being late in replying to this, I am Emma and live in Norfolk, England, I spotted I am not the only one!

I started to do a 365 in 2010 whilst I was travelling, so I have been to some of the places you guys live which made me smile when remembering them, however I got really behind in uploading them when I was in Asia due to internet access so I gave up, however this time I plan to complete it!

Like many others, some days I find it much easier to find things to photograph than others, but I think having a theme is a brilliant idea and really helps with the motivation.

Look forward to seeing all of your images and getting to know people.

Hi all, I'm Natasha from Saddleworth, near Manchester, UK. I'm more-or-less a stay-at-home mum to a 3 year old and a nearly-2 year old. I have just had the time, space and energy to pick up my SLR again for the first time since my second child was born and I want to get re-acquainted with it, hence the 365. I hope this project creates a fresh awakening in me as to what is good in my life. So I expect it to be mainly documentary, and hopefully challenging my photography skills too. I do however appreciate that my time is still tight, some days more than others, so I will probably do a sizeable portion of my shots with my phone.

It's great to read about others' experiences and I look forward to journeying through this year's 365 with you all.
