365 - The first three days

I nearly didn't start again this week.  It's dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home.  Setting up my tripod and battling with no light, long exposure times, tricky white balance - well - it all seemed too much.  But I started anyway, because sometimes the anticipation of beginning something is the worst part.  I just took a picture.  I didn't think about it, I just snapped, and what started out as a blurry picture of my hiking boot and the play of textures in the snow has become a week of exploring white.  

365 seems a lot more managable when you break is down into 52 weeks each with 7 days.  And white seems the perfect antidote to me galumphing around in the dark cursing the black ice and the sun setting before five.  So here they are, my first 3 days of my 365 (take2).

Day 1 : Hiking in Berlin
1/365 : Hiking in the City

Day 2: Warm Lights on a Winter Night
White

Day 3: Mortar and Pestle
White on White

Edit: I just realised that I've managed to think of a theme that is also part of Faith's Simplicity Challenge, so I'm linking up there today.
