The Photo 365 (or #Photo365 on social networks) is a project I’m doing where I take a new photograph every day for 365 days… The rub is that I will only be taking them on my way to and from work. Follow along by bookmarking PhotolisticLife.com or join in by taking the challenge and then uploading your images to the Facebook page.
Already, I can tell that this project is a huge commitment in my already hectic life. There is also no doubt that it will eventually improve my photography and the way I see the world around me. It is beginning to make me look harder at the ordinary landscapes and objects I pass every day on the way to and from work. I have also come to the conclusion that 365 projects are a photographers midlife crisis… More on this another day.
I took the image you see above on my way in to work this morning, it wasn’t the image I had intended on using today though. I’ve been driving the same way to work for the last 10 years and I have always noticed a small pond with a canoe next to it that looked like a great photograph waiting to happen… It wasn’t.
To take this image I pulled across a lane of traffic and backed into a small grassy spot next to the road, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t someones yard… Then, in my suit, I walked through the wet weeds to go after the canoe reflection image I mentioned above. Once I realized that the canoe image was a bust I saw these weed looking things with the sun behind them (about 10 feet from my car) and decided to silhouette them against the light.
