    90 days of pictures HERE. It has been a blast and I am looking forward to the next challenge.

    I did at 365 project a couple of years ago. I credit the effort with improving my photography immeasurably. But it kicked my butt and I was exhausted by the end of the year, and had to take a break.

    Congrats on your accomplishment.

  3. Congratulations, Kevin. There's some great pics in that collection (and yours too, Debi!). I think I would be loathe to do a similar project for the same reason that Debi mentioned; feeling burned out by the end of it. It would appear that I can talk about photography until the cows come home, but actually doing it every day would get a bit much for me.

    Those are terrific. I'm not sure I feel up to tacking a full year yet (3 months was tiring). Right now I want a small break before I jump back to it. Since Summer is on the way (at least on the calendar) perhaps a summer of photos is next. The solstice seems like a good starting point.

    Nice work. Your 2 little dogs are mighty cute.

    I try to take photos as often as possible, but I don't want to impose an artificial plan to force me to do it. I've heard too many stories like Debi's of people getting burnt out or even people resenting their camera.

    Beautiful and amazing work, both from Kevin and Debi.

    I don't know how you keep the inspiration going day in and day out. I could never do it. It certainly takes a lot of creative focus and determination.

    And youthful energy!

    Thanks for sharing these projects.

    I found the simplest way to keep myself on track was to have my camera with me all the time so I started using my old Domke F6 as my work bag (it was pretty easy as that bag is pretty utilitarian). With the camera with me it was easier to keep on track...although I do have a number of photos taken at 11:50PM. Also having cute dogs as a fallback was helpful.

    Next up...Summer of photos (anyone care to join me?)
