Congrats to ( lindsey )!

Yay.. Congrats to Lindsey! He also finished up his project at the end of March. Woo hoo! Below is his photo from day 365!

365/365 - One Moment More

And in his own words...
"I think this is where I am expected to say something meaningful and slightly profound. I suspect I shall disappoint. I am none too pleased with my final shot. I have said that about a majority of my photographs this past year. However, I did accomplish the goals which I set for myself. I found a hobby which I love and allows me to express myself without limitations (other than those I impose upon myself). I have met some marvelous and fantastically talented people. I have learned so very much about the technical aspects of photography and realized that there is so very much more to learn – and I find that exciting. There were many days when I took a picture just because I refused to give up on the project. Most days, however, it was the highlight of the day – the only thing to which I looked forward. I thought I might take a short hiatus before beginning another 365 project, but the pull was too strong. I never missed a day. And so the adventure begins again...

My sincere gratitude to all of you who have offered praise, encouragement and constructive criticism on this journey. If not for the wonderful community of Flickr, especially t
he wonderful people of the 365 Community, I never would have made it past day seven."

A few of his favs from his project ....
341/365 - Lost in Thought022/365 - For Sale
183/365 - Barren


If you browse through his project, you will find a wild variety. Details and shots around his town, some inside his home, you will meet his cute kittie (Aramis), his converse shoes made a few appearances, and he also played around with self portraits. A few of which happen to be my favs.

I love how this one appears to be a candid shot. And you can also see Aramis!

And a great series. Different hats & expressions.

Congrats to h3ather!

Woo hoo. A big round of applause to Heather who finished up her project at the end of March!!! Yay. Her final photo is shown below.

This Is The End


I really enjoyed reading what she wrote to summarize her thoughts on the 365, so I thought I would share an excerpt from it here ...

"Well, 365 days later and it's over. I am glad, though! For two reasons: I completed the project and the project is completed. While I may never do another 365 project, this past 365 project taught me a bunch of things. Thing one: must carry camera to take photo. Thing two: real lighting makes taking indoor photos easier. Thing three: Roscoe would rather commit suicide than have her photo taken. Thing four: Bismarck will do almost anything anyone asks. Thing five: It takes a lot of incentive to make my husband sit with a straight face. Thing six: I don't remember what thing six was supposed to be, but it was the most important one."

She also included some of her 365 stats.
Days Missed: 0
Self-Portraits: 40
Photos with Pugs: 32
Photos of Eric: 21
Photos in Florida: 10
Photos that included sugar: 41
Photos where I probably made a fool of myself in public: 18
Number of props purchased for the project: 39


Below we have featured 3 of her favorites.

Sock Monkey Rage


And two admin pics... kinda felt like Roscoe & Bismarck had to be feature here ;) But I have so many favs of Heather's .. it was really hard to choose! She had a wonderful array of photos in her project. Some great series too (the green cupcake, winter landscapes, her pups, msh submissions and more). But most fun, were her descriptions. A fabulous writing style and great sense of humor!

Hello, My Name is RoscoeData Pug

And of course a link to the slideshow of her entire project. Have a peak.. you won't be disappointed!


And a big thanks to Heather too for all her help with the group and the blog! Thank you.
