Happy New Year

Okay, so I have a bunch of photos that I need to prepare for the last 2 months of 2009 and I'll try to get those up soon.

I had gotten a bit tired of the photo-a-day thing, so I decided I needed some new inspiration. This year, I have two projects. I know, I know ... you're wondering how I'll manage two projects when for the past year I couldn't even keep up with the one!

Well, I have a different focus this time and I'm hoping it helps keep me motivated. The two things I'll be working on are:

Self Portraits 365 - I've seen a lot of people doing this. It's a spin on the photo-a-day thing. I will do some form of self-portrait every day, even if it's just a photo of my hand or something. This way I have a specific subject in mind every day. Sometimes I can be lazy and just snap a quick shot before going to bed, but other days I can try and be more creative. I've already started a set over on flickr here.

52 Photowalks - I read about this project idea over here. The goal is to get out of the house once a week and walk around snapping photos. I'm hoping to do "themes" or "areas" for these walks and I have a list of ideas that I'm excited about - the difficulty will be finding time. My goal is to do almost all of these walks in the Philadelphia area so at the end of the year, I'll have covered a decent amount of the city and surrounding area. I've posted my first one over here although I haven't decided on a format for these yet. More to come later.

Thanks for reading everyone, and hopefully I'll stay motivated this year.

November 30, 2009: Turkey Leftovers

My parents brought over some Thanksgiving leftovers today. It is one of the best things about this holiday, don't you think?

November 29, 2009: Mitsuwa

The closest we can come to being in Tokyo while we're here in the states is to go to Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ. So we took Adina and Steph there today.

November 28, 2009: Guggenheim Museum

Chad and I were practically running to catch a bus to go across Central Park to Knitty City, but I still took the time to snap a couple photos of the Guggenheim.

This Thanksgiving was Joslyn+ because Adina and Steph joined us! Chad and Matt were there too. It was a great time. Even the turkey was happy!

November 25, 2009: Guests are Coming

Adina and Steph are coming to spend the night on Thanksgiving, so we're cleaning the house! I love getting it all clean (although it's never ALL clean, ya know?).
