I’ve been thinking about doing a 365 project on flickr for ages! But I haven’t gotten further than think about it. The subject came up in a mail Chantie sent me here the other day. And therefore I began to think about it again. And with Chanties uplifting words, it’s now become real.
Chantie wanted me to do a regular 365 of myself, but I didn’t really like that idea. I would need a remote control (which I haven’t) and just the fact that I would have to take 365 pictures of myself, didn’t seem like a good idea. I’ve taken quite a few self portraits and only a handfull of them am I satisfied with.
After a lot of thinking and some funny suggestions from Chantie (365 shoes of the day or 365 cats) I landed on 365 doors! I was also thinking about buildings, but I thought that would be a bit boring and difficult. I figured out doors would be way more easier and fun!
So for the next year, I will take a picture of a door each day. That is the plan, at least. I do not know if I will succeed in the end, but the goal is to make it. I have to focus on making it instead of how long it will take me to fail.
I’ve already shot two doors! It’s a beginning.
On my way home today I think I looked at every door I could see. I never thought I would walk around judging all the door in my sight, if they were cool enough for a picture. I must say, it isn’t easy to find door that are worth shooting. Most of the, like 98% of what I’ve seen today, is just boring doors. Almost at home I found the door that ended up being the official door no. 2 of my project.
Wish me good luck on the project. I will need it!
