About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Happy New Year!

I can't believe it! Aside from a few missing posts, I made it through my first project365! I say my "first", because earlier this week I finally decided to continue on with this venture for a second year. I may be changing my "rules" just a tad to lessen the stress. I really wasn't sure if I wanted to sign on for another year. But when I realized that I've taken over 3,500 photos with my Canon XSi, not to mention at least the 1,000 photos I started the year with with my Kodak Easyshare Z612, that total number of shots is slightly staggering to me! I am worried that if I stop now, my camera won't get nearly the use it did in 2010, and I won't continue to learn the myriad of tips, tricks, and techniques.

I want to thank my followers for their kind and helpful comments over 2010. I hope those that I've enjoyed following continue their project365's into 2011 as well. Your photos have inspired me, made me laugh and cry, and taught me incredible amounts about places and people throughout the world! Cheers!


  1. Congratulations, Kristy! That is quite an accomplishment. I know from experience that I dont' have it in me to post a photo for every day of the year so I'm very impressed with those who can. Have fun in the new year!

  2. Welcome back, Kristy! I'm glad to hear you'll be continuing. I look forward to see your 2011 photos. I too may play with the rules a bit but will do my best to post every day. I was thinking I might work with themes or goals. Still thinking on it. All the best in 2011!

  3. Congratulations on a year well done Kristy!

    I wanted to pop in & wish you a Happy New Year! I enjoy your site when I can and truly appreciate your visits to mine. Happy to hear you are continuing!

  4. Happy New Year and congratulations - not an easy task.

  5. Yay!!! Congrats on 2010 and thanks for your support throughout. Can't wait to see all the unsnapped shots of this year. :)
