Old v New

    Newer Older

    Taken for a few groups this time my new kindle, I just love reading and one of my presents this christmas was a Kindle.

    ODC2 - In with the new
    52 weeks/52 words - book
    52 of 2012 - New
    T189 Alphabet challenge - A is for Alphabet

    I cannot believe I have decided to start a new project. I was inspired by my friend Clare to do a December Daily project over the Christmas period, which I did offline, it also meant I had a short Flickr break, which I think I needed. I sure did take lots of photos of all the Christmassy activities we got up to. I then created daily collages of what happened including short notes and mementoes, I still have a couple of days to pull together, but I am really impressed and pleased at the result.

    That brings me onto my new project, as I loved doing the December Daily so much, I have decided to extend that and undertake my own "Project Life 2012" , it is not a traditional 365 (or should I say 366!) and as such will not necessarily upload each individual days shot, it is more a project whereby you look at your life and document it. As such most shots will be set as friends and family only, just fmail me if you would like me to add you as a friend and we have been contacts for a while.

      Enjoy your kindle! Would be interesting also to pile up the number of books that could fit onto a kindle and photograph it . . . or maybe it's been done??

      Nice contrast between the colourful book covers and the grey and white of the Kindle, good luck with your photo project !

      Sounds a fabulous and worthwhile project that could be a great experience. I look forward to hearing how you're finding it and getting a better feel for what it entails. So does it sometimes involve things such as journaling rather than photography?!

      Old and New - Im more old when it comes to books...

      yes it involves both photos, documents and short journals. I want to keep a record of my kids lives while they are still young. I am mainly going to do this for them, as something to look back on in years to come.

      Love the comparison between the old and the new! And I love my Kindle. Although books are cool, and I've got plenty of them, at least you don't have to dust the thousands you can store on one!

      I like the difference between the old and the new. The new one is more compact, which is good for travelling and lame arms, the old is more colourful and mor physical.
      Good luck on your new project, Karen!

      Your December project sounded a great idea, and the 2012 project will be great too I'm sure. This is a lovely shot, I love my Kindle too!!

      Also doing a Journal of Life 366. For some reason it feels easier than the themed 52 week one! Nice composition in the image.

      I too am finding this easier, I think mainly because I have not added the pressure this time of finding shots, being a Project Life means that it is just my everyday life shots. Also, as I am doing this for my kids it gives me more incentive to make it work again. Hopefully I continue to feel this way!
