365 DAYS

A friend of the blog, Network Geek, has started a 365 project on Flickr. It's been around for a while on Flickr, and NG is the first person I "know" to have attempted it. And its a big project. The idea, for those of you unfamiliar-
The Challenge: Take one self portrait each day for a year.

Each day, take a self portrait, tag it with "365days", and submit it to the pool. It's that simple!

For our detailed rules, please have a read through our group rules.
So now I'm thinking of giving it a go. I'm still struggling however, with the idea that its a completely narcissistic and selfish pursuit. I'm starting to come down on the "yes it is, but who cares really" side of things.
The pool of photos is here and when you get away from the fact that people are taking a photo of themselves, some of the pictures are fantastic. I think its a really interesting creative project, since you have to keep coming up with new ideas and new concepts to keep it fresh.
You can look at NG's 365 days set here.
I'm still undecided.....

Did you ever see the original concept of this on youtube?
Search "Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 5 years" (i think its 5 anyway).

Beautiful backing music - the whole thing is so haunting. And you see so much of Noah's life - when he moves, what his favourite t'shirts are. So awesome.
