profileIn 2013 I shared one picture a day that illustrated a portion of my day, or something I noted as being interesting. My hope was that my photography skills will improve over the year.  I had fun. Going forward I will continue to share photos of my life, but not as often.

I’m a dad, a husband, I work, I live a suburban life in Minnesota.  Don’t expect pictures of the sea, mountains, far reaching vistas, Gothic architecture, or wild animals.  That’s not my life.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and following! Looking forward to seeing your photos! I love what you have so far! Great compositions! Btw, my son loves legos too!

  2. Thanks for the follow. Good luck with your 365. I have had friends do the same and say it is a challenge. I am hoping the same as you, grow, learn, enjoy.

  3. I love this! I think this will be an extraordinarily rewarding venture. A picture each day in Minnesota? By this time next year, it’s going to be so easy to see why living here is awesome. Good luck!

  4. Hi Luke! Thanks for finding my Snow flake photos/blog. I saw you’re embarking on a 365 photo project…. that’s SOOO cool! I just finished one that I started last year. It was started by Michael Andrew, a wedding photographer in Maui Hawaii. There were about 160+ people when we started the project and around 25 of us made it all the way through. It was a very rewarding process, in so many ways! If you’d like to check his out, Michael is hosting another project this year (www.mavenforums.com – look for 365 photo club 2013 on the main forum page). It might be a neat page for ideas, if you ever want some.

    Having just completed a 365 photo adventure, I know that it is a very rewarding process. You can learn so much about your camera, composition, and so much more as you really begin to develope your photographic eye and sence of style. You’ll being to see things in a whole new way! And will find you look at most things from many angles and veiw points, even if you dont realize you’re doing so. You’ll notice how light interacts with objects… and so much more. Photography is an amazing thing. And it is SO much fun!

    I hope you enjoy your 365 project as much as I did mine. And dont give in to discouragement. Out of the 25+ of us who finished the one I just did, you can probably ask any of us and we’d all tell you that at some point in the process you might feel discouraged, or like you’re running out of ideas/inspiration etc. …but making it to that last day is very rewarding!! There’s a pretty big sence of accomplishment. ~ Looking forward to seeing what you do with your project!

    1. Thank you for the comment; I will be sure to check out the site you mentioned. The first month presented a couple of days in which I had not idea what to do until ‘it hit me’…inspiration, that is. If I get through all 365 it will be a great accomplishment indeed. Thanks again.

  5. Thanks for checking me out!
    I like to do my projects in 100 days at a time. It has turned into a very rewarding lifestyle for me..good luck with yours!

  6. It is amazing how just bringing out the camera more frequently encourages us to stretch creatively, approach shots from an out-of-the-box perspective. Minnesota has plenty of interesting views — including some pockets of wild animals, far-reaching vistas and the sea . . . oh wait, that’s Lake Superior! ~ Kat

    1. in just 40 days I feel like my skills have improved, I find myself slightly obsessing over light and views…sometimes obsessions are good. thanks for spinning through the blog, I appreciate your comment.

  7. Great blog, great project. You have already some very good shots. I suggest, if I may, to choose a blog theme that doesn’t repeat the daily photo as a featured photo. I use the same theme that you do but as my posts usually have more than one photo, it doesn’t show as much…
    I wish you good look in your photographic venture!

      1. It’s a nice theme but not customizable to that extent. By the way, I meant “good luck” in my comment (but also whish a good look as well (-: ).

  8. Its such a good idea, documenting something everyday. its something i keep telling myself i will do one day. good work the images are awesome. such a broad range of things yet all show great control of your camera.

  9. Hi and congratulations for starting a 365 photo project. I’m in my 3rd year of taking photos every day and believe that I have really grown as a photographer; I’m sure that you’ll experience the same, too!

    Enjoy the journey!

  10. Thanks for stopping by. Love your photos! Who needs the mountains and ocean when you have your family and the city. I lived with the mountains and ocean for 20 years. I now live in N.E. Wisconsin with the beauty of the woods and river. I wish there were kids in my life for no other reason than to snap their picture every day. I am going to a wedding on Saturday, they don’t know that I plan on attacking with my camera. It’s family so should be fun. I am trying to do 365 day but with my history it will take me 500 days to get those in. Not so good at posting every day. I will follow your blog and enjoy your kids. My granddaughters live in the land of mountains and oceans and I don’t get to see them so I will smile at your children.

  11. Have you decided what you are going to do when the year is over? I’m struggling to keep with it but part of me doesn’t want to just stop at the end of the year.

  12. I see a lot of familiar territory here, wish I had been more involved with my photography when I was a suburban dad, but I’m doing my best to make up for it now that I have moved north. Keep up the good work, your photos are great.

      1. Thank you. You’re too kind! There’s a log way before me. But thanks again for liking my blog. I’ll be following yours with great pleasure and even greater anticipation of forthcoming projects! Keep it going. (And by the way, maybe you were a novice photographer on day 1, but now you are a real pro! Super Pro! Thanks for sharing this amazing artwork of yours!)
