Goals, Resolutions, Projects? What are your plans for 2010?

So the first week of 2010 has come and gone. And while my Christmas decorations are all still up (sigh, maybe I'll tackle that one tomorrow), my list of goals, resolutions and projects for the new year has been scratched into my virtual notepad. One of the projects I hope to tackle this year is called Project 365. (Also known as Photo A Day.) Basically you take a photo everyday for a year. Some people choose to do Project 52 which means you take one photo a week for a year. Either way you choose an outlet for your photos. You could blog them, facebook them, flickr them, print them and put them into a photo album, scrapbook or journal. There are are a ton of other creative ways you could compile your 365 photos for a given year. I've chosen to put my photos together into a digital collage on a weekly basis. So one collage for 7 days of photos. The photos do not have to be works of art. They don't have to pictures of the amazing things you do everyday. Just daily moments. Simple things. Things in your life you probably would overlook if you weren't doing the project. I've been aware of this movement for awhile now ... but never had the gumption to take it on. As it is I usually am photographing my work for my website as often as 4 days a week. It can be a chore. The last thing I wanted was another reason to HAVE to pick up my camera. But the one thing I noticed over the last two years was that while I was spending so much time behind the lense shooting my wares, my kids and my life sort of disappeared from being on the other end of camera's lense. As I went through my photos and organized everything, I noticed I didn't have nearly as many photos of my family and our adventures as I used to. This realization of loss motivated me. So here is my P365 Week 1 Photo Collage:
