365 Project - Week 1

1. Lunch
2. Begins with 'G'
3. My town
4. Words to live by (postcard from Paperchase)
So as we move in to 2014 it's a time to try new things, and as a result of this I've decided to retire my weekly 'Desert Island Essentials' series after a whopping 23 weeks of posting it. It was a post I loved doing, however I feel like it has well and truly run its course and it's time to move on to something different.

This year I'm attempting to do a 365 Project, which means taking a photo a day for a whole year. I've tried these before but things have got in the way or I've hit a wall when it comes to inspiration however this year I've decided to try and combat this by using the prompts created by Fat Mum Slim for help with ideas. You can find the rest of the January prompts and a bit more about the challenge here.

As 2014 only officially started on Wednesday I only have four photos so far but I wanted to start the series off right from the beginning. Every Sunday I'll be posting the photos from the previous week, starting from the Sunday of the previous post until the Saturday before. For the challenge I'm going to be using both my camera and my phone, depending on what suits the situation most. I'm hoping to use my camera more than my phone however we'll just have to wait and see! Most photos will be taken that day however sometimes things will get in the way or I'll have the perfect photo hidden away in my archive somewhere - as was the case with day 3 - and I'm perfectly happy with including that. I don't want to be too strict on myself or else I'll probably just give up.

Have you set yourself any challenges for this year?
