Christmas, eh? Madness. This is just a small selection of the sweets, treats and general gluttony that has taken place over the last few days.
And it's also the first pic of my 365/2011 project. Hopefully a bit more organised and sane than last year. Last year's almost worked, but it's difficult to work photography around everything else in my busy schedule. There are many reasons I lacked inspiration last year, from being stuck in the same place day in, day out to being too tired to even contemplate art once the day's jobs were done.
A big factor, as always, was also not having a camera with me at all times. I've got the kit, the bag and the insurance now. Going to start carrying it with me more often, even if I end up not using it.
I'm relaxing my own rules this year. It'll be 7 pictures a week, rather than 1 picture a day. The reason for this is simple; some days I'm inspired and have the time required to get some nice shots, and other days I simply don't have it in me. But if I get 2 or 3 good pics in a single day (good enough to post on here, anyway) then I'll aggregate them all every Sunday. And let's face it, that's pretty much what I did last year anyway.
On a very positive note, I have a photobook of last year's attempt en route. Looks to be very snazzy and I'm looking forward to seeing them laid out on the page.
