Start a Photo A Day project today...
I've been following Amy Medina's photo a day project, on and off since she began back in July 2009... I was delighted to find a writeup by Amy on Steve Huff's website here - a truly inspiring read!
Take a look, and why not start a PAD project of your own?
I think I'll start mine today... using our cool blog facility.
If you'd like to join me in this exercise, please post a link to your blog here.

I was enthusiastic about doing a PAD, but I just couldn't sustain it. So I thought I could handle a Picture a Week... and my web galleries are even structured that way. But the truth is, I couldn't even manage that most years! I'm just not very disciplined, I think. I have to say that I came closest to achieving this after I bought my little GRD-2, which went with me everywhere during 2009. It's always with me, even since acquiring the E-P1 earlier this year.

Brian, I think that this idea has great merit. Flickr has a 365 Project as well. I would love to join up but right now I'm dealing with my camera controls first and deal with Don's "Image Quest".
However, once I get my act together I shall try.
kai.e.g., I appreciate your comments very much.
I do solemnly swear to try to be better disciplined.

I started a 365 project on January 1. It has been rewarding, frustrating, invigorating, annoying, inspiring, depressing, loathsome and fun. I have connected with a few other photographers on this path recently and have shared the joys and tribulations of the PAD project. At best, it is making me a better photographer. I try to see the world differently. The 365 project is what brought me to micro four thirds in the first place. I wanted a camera that I could carry with me every I go. The DSLR just wasn't going to cut it. At worst, it's making me a lousy husband. I'm glad my wife understands. If you're interested:

Oh, I have since January an A Print A Week project, but it is not m43, it is pinhole camera.
But I will follow your blog.

having people following my daily blog will keep me motivated - I'm sure we could all use more self discipline, and knowing that people will be watching and wondering 'how long will he keep it going' adds a necessary edge
Here's Day 2... what about titles?

Terrific photos, Steve. I grew up just north of Austin, spent more than a few years there as an undergraduate at UT, still have family in Austin, so visit at least once year. Was just in the Hill Country within the past couple of years.
