Daily Photo 2013

In 2013 I loosened the rules on my daily photo project. In the first year of the project I used my iPad and did not edit any of the photos. In my second year I used my digital camera or my iPad, although since I carry the iPad all the time, most of my photos are still taken with the iPad. I also allowed myself to edit the photos, although it turned out that I didn’t edit many of them. Finally, I started to have a different theme for my photos each month.

I started my daily photo project in February 2012. I didn’t give it much thought before I started, and frankly I wasn’t sure I would be able to keep it up for a full year. But I did last the whole year, and I really enjoyed it. Knowing that I have to take at least one photo a day makes me look at things differently. I find myself looking beyond the foreground, checking out unusual angles, and really looking at my surroundings.

I plan to continue with this project for several more years. Because my first year of daily photos ended in February, this year technically started in February, on February 10th. This is confusing and hard to keep track of so I am adding the photos from January to this page and from now on will start the new year of daily photos with the start of the new year on January 1st.

January didn’t have a theme because I hadn’t decided to have a theme yet, there were lots of photos of weather and architecture.

The theme for February was Architectural Details in Edmonton and Calgary.

The theme for March was Signs. Signs are used to communicate so many different things.

In April I was looking for Signs of Spring. Some days I found them, some days I didn’t.

In May I was looking at Plants and Trees. I was still enjoying those signs of spring.

The theme for June was Up.

In July I took photos of Water across Canada from Alberta to Ontario. At the end of June my mind was on the flooding Alberta was recovering, and I knew there would be a lot of water activities in the summer.

In August the theme was Edmonton Life; the photos show some of the diversity of life found here in Edmonton.

The theme for September was Down.

The theme for October was Shadows.

The theme for November was Light.

The theme for December was Snow and Ice.
