A photo a day. That was my original intention when I launched this blog back in January 2010 and I did indeed post 365 images that first year and then another 366 in 2012. (2011 was a much different story, my rationale at the time having something to do with quality vs. quantity.) Having now tried it both ways, I’ve come to believe that quantity (or rather the consistency of daily practice) is in fact the surest and most direct route to quality.
Because the whole point of this blog, and the purpose of making myself accountable in such a public way, is to evolve and improve as a photographer.
That being said, my year has gotten off to a rocky start and I’m simply not up to the pressure of daily posting this time around. So in an effort to maintain some semblance of momentum I’ve decided to split the difference and post 225 images this year. This isn’t as arbitrary a number as it might at first seem when you consider the fact that my blog archive will have grown to a grand total of 1,000 images once it’s been achieved. Quite a nice round number don’t you think?
Your comments and feedback are welcome and appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by!
