    Six days ago I started my personal 365 project. I'm trying to take a photo a day for a year (as many of you might know) to see how creative I can get, how i progress, and to hopefully find my own style of photography. Some of these photos might not exactly be "photography" but just a photo that sums up my day.

    Just wanted to share my first six pictures and the link to my project. Not exactly looking for C&C, so please don't tell me i posted too many pictures, but of course C&C would be useful. Also, if anyone has any tips on how to make this project more successful (finding new subjects to shoot, how to not run out of ideas, etc.) or any comments, please do share. :p hope you enjoy.

    haha thanks guys :p always nice to have support/comments

    thebeatles: I definitely recommend you to try this out. I find myself using my camera more and more nowadays. i barely touched it before (if it wasnt school work it was laziness). Kinda forces you to think outside the box in order to find a nice shot when you feel as if you're out of ideas. BTW, i see you have a canon g9. how's that treatin you? my friend's interested in getting one haha.

    I have to say I am shocked that people haven't heard about the 365 project. It's the most trendy thing on Flickr. Dustin Diaz became famous fro
    his 365, and he's not even done. I am going to start one on new years day.
