A Quickie!

Just wanted to make a quick observation, one that was beyond the 140 character limits of Twitter:
I've been participating in a 365 Photo challenge, in which one takes, and posts to a blog or to Flickr, a photo per day every day of the year. This is my first time doing so, and I'm really enjoying it!
Once upon a time, back when photographers used film, I fancied myself a bit of a photographer. When I was in 7th grade, I won an Honorable Mention at the Los Angeles County Fair for a picture I'd taken. We even had photo as an elective at my middle school, and I took several years of photo classes through high school and into college.
In the end, though, it was never destined to be more than a hobby for me. And that is completely OK.
Now, though, as I participate in this project, I find myself looking at the world a little differently. I look around, at school, at home, during my commute, and wonder what would make a good picture. I've taken to snapping pictures from time to time, just for the fun of it, and look forward to time when I think there will be cool photo opportunities.
I have to admit, it's fun!
I'm not sure where this will lead, but for the moment I'm enjoying this medium of creative expression for the sake of creation, and encourage you, gentle reader, to participate yourself.

Go ahead. It's fun!

Great project! My wife has also done a 365. Lots of cool memories when you look at them later.

I'd love to compare notes on school administration. Hope you're having a good year!

Ms. Cornelius,
It's been fun for me to re-discover the fun of photography. I find myself looking at the world a little differently: where's the good shot going to be? And I've been really impressed with how well the iPhone's camera works; some really decent pictures.
