On my 28th birthday I decided to start a new personal creative project; taking daily snapshots, and posting 1 photograph per day on this Flickr site, recording my life with everyday images as a photographic diary.
I had the urge to visually record all the inspirational things/items/spaces/buildings/people I saw each day around me while living in NYC / traveling the world, simply because I didn't want to forget. By forcing myself to photograph "that certain something that inspired me" on a daily basis, I got into a rhythm of opening my eyes just a tad bit more and to just look at whats happening around me in a different way, with a different eye.
And now? it's an uncontrollable (and sometimes annoying...) habit; I can not leave the house without my camera, bike around town without my camera, travel through small rural villages or big metropolitan cities without my camera...
Im an architectural designer with a passion for photography and traveling/exploring.

"Mariëlle's photostream is a tutorial in how to see the magic, beauty and humor in your everyday life. She ought to know; she's been taking a pic.a.day for years. Whether it's an oddly smushed banana peel, an outrageous pair of checkered pants, a beautiful panorama, an unexpected symmetry, or a poignant moment, M shows us the Zen of being a photographer. (Oh, and she has a book! Check her profile!) Thank you, Mariëlle, for your encouragement and friendship - I'm still learning from you every day :-)"
