Project 3652

Every once in a while I get a manic desire to start an ambitious new project. Most of these ambitions never see the light of day, but I’m excited to announce yesterday’s commencement of my latest undertaking: Project 3652.

Project 3652 began as a need to find a daily creative motivation in my life. I love photography, but I’m often too lazy to pick up all two pounds of my SLR and look around for some image to capture. I was inspired by a popular trend in digital photography called Project 365, which involves taking and posting one photo each day for a year.

I think you can see where this is going.

Because I can never settle for what everyone else is doing, I decided to push myself just a little farther, and came up with Project 3652: one photo a day, every day, for 3,652 days. Starting on my 30th birthday, which was yesterday. This project will provide a visual snapshot of my entire 30s. It will force me, every day, to pick up a camera, whatever (digital) camera I have on hand, and summon at least enough creative strength to press the shutter in the general direction of something worth capturing. There is no predetermined subject matter, and no telling where this project will take me or how it might develop over the years.

I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I plan to.

Project 3652.
