the best thing about taking a photo every single day is that at the end of the year, you have a visual review of what happened. i long ago realized that these 365 projects are about remembering much more than they are about taking great pictures. they're about the daily practice. they're about noticing the world around you, even if just for a few minutes, on a daily basis. but mostly, they're about memory.

in many ways, it was a quiet year. we didn't travel much, we spent a lot of time at home. we enjoyed our animals and our garden. people visited us. we noticed the light. we ate great food. we acquired quite a lot of bobbaloos. we horsed around. and had baby bunnies that grew up way too fast. it was a creative year and a year full of color. there were cloudy days and a lot of rain, but when the light came, it was spectacular. in all, i'm rather content with 2011.

i'm looking forward to what 2012 brings. and i will continue to take a photo every day - it's become a way of life for me, having done it for two years now.

happy new year one and all!

the memories you have collected are priceless. It is my intention to start a 365 project of my own this year. Your collection is fabulous, Happy New Year.

Wow you weren't kidding when you said the year was filled with color!
I may have to take a daily picture myself in 2012. Also, I may post at least one picture of every month in 2011.
Thanks for your inspiring me and your always beautiful blog.

the light. i have noticed how little of it there has been this year, but there has been a whole lot of grey...

I so wanted to do this in 2011, and started with all the best intentions. but somehow the year ran away from me. I'm starting 2012 a bit depressed by all the things I didn't achieve in 2011
