I am so, so proud that I managed to complete my 365 project without missing a single day. On 31st December, as I posted my final shot for the year I felt really jubliant. Here is my mosaic for December and also my final mosaic of all my shots. I think I will get them all printed so that I can look back on them.

I’ve also decided to go for another year. You can follow my Flickr stream here if you are interested. I’ll continue to post my monthly mosaics here though.


A year of MSH

I finished the Monthly Scavenger Hunt for December a few days ago which in turn saw me complete 12 months in a row. Here’s my mosaics… I’m really pleased with them.

As a part of the 365 project in the Flickr group I am in we post a mosaic of images at the end of each month. I am really enjoying the challenge.

Februarys set should be interesting… I am in Taizé for one week out of it! I cannot wait!

Monthly Scavenger Hunt

My fixation with Flickr continues. A while ago I joined a group called “Monthly Scavenger Hunt”. I have lurked but not yet joined in until now. I’ve decided to give it a go as it looks fun! It might provide me with inspiration for my 365 project when I’m struggling for ideas and I like the prompts on the list!

I love New Years Day, especially when I’ve had a lovely quiet evening in the night before, no hangovers and extreme tiredness here!

The day feels fresh, there is anticipation in the air and you can sense the new beginnings that comes with a brand new year. We have just taken down all of our decorations. They are now packed away and stored back up in Robyn’s attic bedroom. The living room feels a bit bare but at the same time it feels brighter. Now comes the task of sorting out all of the toys. We  need to go through them all and decide which ones will go upstairs to the girls rooms, which ones will go to my mum and dads house and which will stay down here. We sorted out the toys that needed throwing away/rehoming just before Katie’s birthday so at least we know one task is done lol.

I’ve just started a 365 project on Flickr. Here is my first shot:

From now on I’ll probably only post my monthly mosaic here but feel free to keep an eye on the project on my Flickr page. You could even join in. The group I am doing it in is one set up for members past & present from my OU course but there are lots of 365 projects on Flickr.
We’ve also started a new savings scheme… £1 a day for 2010. Hopefully we will stick to it and by this time next year we will have £365 to treat ourselves with!

Maybe not quite a web tool but the thing that has to come under this section is Flickr.

I was introduced to it by a friend and when my OU photography course (T189) started I became hooked. On Flickr I can share photographs of more random things than I do on Facebook. So many people are able to see my photographs. The rush I blogged about earlier on in this challenge becomes even more immense when I get a comment on Flickr. A complete stranger telling me that they like my photograph is amazing for me! In 2010 I am going to start a photo a day challenge set up by a past T189 course member. I hope it keeps my passion for photography alive now that my course has finished.

A web tool that enables my photographs to be seen by more people has to be good! You can see my Flickr photostream here:
