I have completed the 365 Project!  I am happy to report that I did not miss a single day.*  As I’ve mentioned, it was a bit of a burden and, as result, a lot of the photos…well…suck.  Many days I had to just shoot something, anything (usually food or something lame around my house) just to cross it off my list and move on to more important things in my life, like work and kids.  Knitting often served as an easy subject, as did my fair city.  I took many photos with my iPhone and some of them turned out surprisingly nice.  Overall, though, I’d say that the project did not quite accomplish what I’d hoped — that I’d become a better photographer and that I’d land some award-winning (metaphorically speaking) shots.  (This is the person I most emulated and my shots — let alone my parenting — are not even in the same league.)  That said, I’m glad I did it and doing the project during a complete calendar year — Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 — was a cool way to capture  my own personal 2011.  If you’re incredibly bored, take a look and let me know if there are any you find particularly likeable.  For my part, to close the loop, I’ll leave you with both the first and the last in the set.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

* I did misnumber a few times but there is a photo for every day of the year.
