Project 365

I want to share one of mine with all of you. A friend put me onto Project 365. The simple task of this project is to photoblog each day of the year, for one year. That means that you will want to take one picture each day and then upload them to a blog as often as you can (you may certainly upload a week’s worth at once; the real idea is to be sure you take a daily photo).

One of the nice things about this project is that you create natural opportunities for writing: your kids may want to tag the photos with captions, for instance, or one of you may take a photo worthy of a freewrite or that might catalyze a poem. Somehow putting a camera in a child’s hands leads to a new view, to energy released, to enthusiasm for paying attention to the small things in life.
