Alrighty, I stole this idea from some random photography website and I think it looks like a swell idea. Everyone’s invited! Here’s how it breaks down…

Firstly, the point is to compile a list of significantly “good” things or topics in which to photograph. Preferably, each of these things is: 1) interesting, 2) inspirational, 3) some type of double entendre, and/or 4) possibly hilarious.

Secondly, we set a time limit (usually done within about a month), in which all photographs must be taken–no recycling old favorites even if they fit with a topic perfectly. Honor system, people. New photos only.

Thirdly, SNAP AWAY! Just get out there and take as many pictures as possible! One thing I learned from my writing days is that it takes a lot of bad creations to get one decent one. Take a lot of pictures. Don’t be afraid of taking bad ones. In fact, learn to love the bad ones! Think of each photograph as another step, another pivotal milestone in you own personal photographical education. And have some fun too!

By the end, everyone should have one photograph (however edited you wish) per word/phrase.

Total: 23 things. 23 photos.

Anyway, this on begins today! (Yesterday!) — March 15th and ends one month later on tax day, April 15th.

And when the month’s up we’ll post all the photographs on each others’ blogs and websites (my blog, Dom’s blog, Sean’s possibly) and link to each other and have a group hug and maybe a pint or two as well.

Remember, this shouldn’t add to the daily stress of life, but in fact help ease and reduce it. Feel free to take a rain check this time around, I’m sure we’ll be doing this again in no time.

Here we go…
