Monday Madness: a photography project – 26 things

Years ago, I completed a photography project called 26 things. Its run by sh1ft.org, and is a fun little one month project where by you take photos based on a list of 26 prompts1 and post your photos at the end of the month. There are no prizes, no winners, no glory2. I like it because its easy, and because there are no winners. You drive yourself, and can be honest about your work. If you cheat, you’re only cheating yourself.

I was happy to find that it was still running after all these years, and so in an attempt to keep myself busy and therefore save money for when he moves here in May3. Here is the little that I have so far4:

  1. Great idea. Hope it does keep you busy till May 🙂 I am no photographer but I like having photos to document what I’ve been up to, but I realised I don’t take enough so taking more is one of my resolutions

  2. @trench: lol its ok, I’ll do them for both of us!

    @Melissa: Oh, I don’t know that I could do a pic a day. Kudos to you on that one! 🙂 Next set of photos coming soon!

    @Bitter Chocolate: Thanks!! Glad you like them 🙂 Have you been back to the Gym since Friday?

    @AmeriGlide: hehe no she doesn’t know, she won’t find out really and I figure since her face isn’t showing she can’t get mad! haha

  3. I like those kind of ‘projects’ too. They get you thinking and your creativity flowing, but there isn’t really any pressure.

    Does your neighbor know you are taking pictures of her while she works? 😉

    @Web-Betty: I think I would have trouble keeping up with the pic-a-day thing too. That is a pretty solid commitment.

  4. Sounds really interesting, looking forward to seeing the rest of your photos for the project! They are beautiful so far!
