Project 365 in Reverse--Sort Of...

Thanks to Emily of Scattered Horizons Photography for passing on this wonderful idea!  I tried a Project 365 (taking and posting a photo every day for a year) and made it to the middle of April.  I will take more photos this year, but probably not every day, This is a great way to revisit my photos and share them with you all.

The 365 Project is a great way to improve your photography and to document each day for the next year, but it’s also very daunting and can be difficult to complete. But what if you did a 365 with pictures you’ve already taken?
Pete Labrozzi created a new way to complete the 365 Project. Instead of taking a picture every day for the next year, Pete is using photos he’s taken from previous years.
In the smartphone age, our pictures barely last a hot minute. With this project, you can pull them out of the darkness and incorporate them into your future 365.
Some benefits according to Pete:
  • Everyday life gets a little mundane. The Reverse 365 lets you skip uploading 100 pictures of your pet or daily coffee
  • Be free of carrying a camera with you everywhere you go
  • Less stress about posting the photos because they’re already taken
  • You’re still able to look back on your work and progress, it just happens sooner!
So here's the first one, taken a few years ago at one of my favorite places, Portland head light at Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  Post processing included adding a texture layer and the words.
