This project started on April 21, 2013 and was never intended to be more than a few days of taking photos during the reemergence of spring colours after a long winter. I took photos along the Ottawa river pathway during my first bike ride of the season and posted them on Facebook and Twitter.

The days stayed beautiful and I was busy resting my running muscles following the Boston Marathon so I kept on taking my daily photos. One week turned into two, two turned into four -after six months I thought I would make a year.

When the year ended, I didn't stop. I have no idea how long I will keep this up. It was born out of seeking and finding beauty after a particularly stressful weekend. I have come close to stopping just twice: a few weeks after I started (before it became "a thing"), I had one day with a single photo (and a low-quality phone selfie at that). My most challenging day was June 21, 2013 when I took photos each hour during the longest day of the year from sunrise to sunset.

Please follow along. I post a few of my favourites to Twitter(@jpeltzer), Instagram (@james.peltzer) and more of the ones I like in weekly albums in this collection.

Enjoy!
