Flickr 366 – 2012 Review

2012 was the year I undertook my Flickr 366 project, one photo a day for the whole year.

I am proud to say it was a success, 366 separate photos – one (and usually many more!) for each day was taken and uploaded to my Flickr set.

Now, it might not sound a lot but it was challenging.  The idea was about breaking habits and trying not to force myself to take photos, but about encouraging myself to notice interesting angles, frames and generally looking at my surroundings in a different way.  Yes there were days when, at 11:30pm, I realised I hadn’t taken a snap and scrabbled around my flat seeking out shadow effects, or looking to crop an everyday object into something mysterious, but I always came up trumps.

Some photos are better than others from a technical point of view, some made me laugh, and others I found I preferred just as much for the memory or feeling that they evoke for both personal and sentimental reasons.

If you’ve been a reader over the past year you will have noticed at the end of each month I did a quick review and highlighted some of my favourites from that month.  Now that the project is over this post will look back at the year as a whole and put forward one image from each month as my favourites from the year.

Some months could easily have had two or three favourites, but such is the review that I had to be ruthless in selecting just one from each of them.

The twelve monthly reviews I undertook last year are neatly categorised and can all be viewed one after the other here, whilst the Flickr set itself is over here.

Hope you enjoyed the project as much as I did!

    What a great idea! My camera just sits in the corner gathering dust, perhaps I should take some inspiration.
