365 review


Firstly, thank you to everyone who has left suggestions for what to do in New York!  Seems as if I'm going to have to make a trip to the High Line and perhaps while I'm down that way wander around Chelsea.

I'm into my second month of the 365 challenge and it's getting both easier and harder.  I'm finding it easier to remember to take the photos but with the days shortening I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find time to take a photo before or after work.  I missed four photographs in October, most of them due to light issues.  

This month I'm planning on joining Justine Gordon for a 'black and white' month.  Black and white photography is a little more forgiving when it comes to lighting and I've recently fallen in love with this medium after going to an exhibition of Marianne Breslauer's work.  If you're interested in joining Justine (or me) in the black and white challenge you can head over to her blog or visit the flickr stream.

Here's my favourite from the first five days
64/365 : Turku from the hotel

I'm glad you are finding black and white easier, I am finding it much harder - looking for textures and light! thanks for putting my link up there. I love your October 365, so colourful and varied and interesting.

I like B&W photography. Acctually is more artistic in my eyes. :)
I should go and check. Thank you.
Have a nice weekend.

Very dramatic! I love the way the lights stand out.

This is so nice Clare. I too am feeling the shortening of the days, and it truly does make it difficult around a work schedule. Clocks go back an hour this weekend, which makes it even worse :-(
Have a great weekend.

The 365 does get quite challenging doesn't it?? I went through some of the same feelings this month. I love how you have compiled the month...I would like to see my images together like that, nice time stamp.
That High Line sounds interesting, have fun!

You know I love your collages! And your processing is what I'd love MINE to be. You have a very unique, recognizable style; just lovely!

Stunning shot Clare. Great tree reflections. I'm finding the same trouble with my 365...not enough daylight hours. We just switched to EST from daylight savings so sunset at 4:30 today. Boo hoo.
New computer this week. Hoping to stay better caught up with faster speed. Happy day to you.

Beautiful photos! I miss doing my 365 so much I can't wait to have a camera again.

i've been considering doing the 365. i thought i'd start next month for my birthday. but you're right, the losing light is problematic. i do like black + white photography. i started taking pictures only using B&W film with my vintage pentax. i'll definitely check out the project. thanks for sharing!
