Welcome to Project i365

 As the month of January draws to an end, I’ve decided I really do want to give this a try. I’ve seen a few people try things like “January photo a day” projects, or “365” projects where they’ll try to post something a day and I’m sure if allowed myself to include the chaos I capture with my regular camera every day, I’d make it without a problem. That just wouldn’t be could enough for me, I really wanted to twist this up a bit. Since I’m a huge nerd and I’ve really decided I have a little bit of an inappropriate tech crush on my iPhone, I made the choice that, in addition to the normal shots I take with my digital SLR, I would attempt to document an entire year of my life with at least one picture a day take on and completely edited with my iPhone 4s.

 Even thought the blog is a month behind, the shots started right away just after the first of the year when I woke up a little hung over from my New Year’s Eve party to capture this image as I want out to get some food:

Sunset over north Arlington today on my way home. #hadtopullover #pweeeeetty I’ll go over some of my favorite shots from the last month to start things off with a bang, then the idea is, at least once a week, I’ll create a new post and catch you up on the last weeks photos. Just a quickly little blurb about where I was, what I was thinking at a time, and maybe even how I made the shot look like that if I did anything neat!

 The next few shots are from a quick trip I took to Minnetonka, MN for a few days, then an overnight stop in Chicago to get myself into a little trouble! The first shot below is a sunset I caught then leave the office my last night in Minnesota…

The sunset over Minnetonka, MN leaving one of our offices today! The next a view of downtown Minneapolis when I went out driving around looking for a late night snack….. turns out that’s actually much harder to find around there then you’d expect!

It's hard to find a late night snack out here.... But it sure is pretty! The following to shots are from the Thursday night and Friday morning I spend in Chicago with some friends. What a great city! I had an AMAZING view out of my hotel room, as you’ll see, walking around the city was beautiful, and needless to say there was surely no shortage of nightlife, awesome people, and things to be seen!

The view out my hotel window! Now..... Out for some drinkin!!!!!

    1. First of all, thanks so much for checking out the site!!! I say go for it. Its about only $15 in apps (and you could get away with just the free ones if you wanted too). It doesn’t take anything more than time really. Just start taking the shots, post them on Facebook…. see where it goes from there!

      At the end of the year I’m definitely going to use all the shots to build a much larger project also. Hopefully its something I can repeat in years to come with a few different twists also.

  1. Beautiful photos and beautiful idea! You definitely are doing some pretty amazing work with just apps! Incredible. A new wave in art. Excited for more photos to come!

    1. Thank you, I sincerely do appreciate the compliments! I will def be taking pictures everyday and should be making updates at least once a week if not more. It’s great to hear people are interested in the idea and the project, it makes taking the shots and posting the blog entries that much more enjoyable. I hope I can continue to add a little something nice to look at to your days and weeks to come. 🙂
