Project 365 and a Sign of the Times

Just read an article about something called Project 365, on a website called Photojojo, which seems to be an online photography newsletter you can subscribe to. Project 365 was originated by photographer Taylor McKnight, who started taking a photo a day on January 1st, 2004. When he took the first photo:
"he never imagined the project would not only serve as a way to remember a year, but also help him understand what was important to him in his life.

Whether it was his relationships, his career, or his fashion sense, recording a photo a day for a whole year left him with a rich visual history of his life. And it made him a better photographer to boot!
"
Interesting idea. Well, I doubt that I could keep up the photo-a-day pace. But I did take some photos yesterday that pretty much represent how I spent most of the day. We're in the process of reorganizing the space in our bedroom – trying to clear out a lot of the junk that's gotten lost in there over the last decade or so. Throwing lots of stuff out – including a bunch of very old floppy disks. Computer technology has advanced many generations since we started out with our old IBM. We really can't get at the data on these anymore, so into a garbage bag they went, and I snapped my Photo of the Day, below.

  1. Yes Joy... Computer technology always stays ahead of me!!!! Once you buy a computer or a new camera, etc.---it's outdated in only a few months. It's no wonder I can't keep up with the times!!!

  2. I haven't seen floppy discs in a long time. I still have some of the 1.4MB micro-discs (or whatever they were called), but I'm not sure I have a drive to read them. I guess I'll have to join you and do some housecleaning.

  3. Hmm..a photo a day? For me it would be of my monitor because some days I don't think I do anything else! How boring is that? Your photo, however, is inspiring. I think tomorrow I will have my own trash bag picture full of fabric scraps. I don't know, this might be kinda fun actually. Should have started on the first!

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
