New Year – New Challenge #1 – Project 365

January 1, 2009 15:58 by Andrew Westgarth

In my last post, which wasn’t intended to be my last of 2008, I mentioned that I was looking for new challenges.  Well one of those got underway in December when I changed jobs and started working for Hydratight in their Software Engineering Team.  However the next challenge which I have embarked upon started today.  I have taken my first steps into completing Project365 on Flickr!

What is Project365?

Essentially Project365 is about having one photo for every day in a year.  There are different groups and ways of achieving this on sites such as Flickr, you can choose what you want you pictures to depict.  As this is my first attempt I am taking a photo of what’s happened in my day or selecting a photo which depicts what I’ve been up to.  My first photo, taken and uploaded today was a reflection of issues I’ve been having while installing Adobe CS4 Web Premium today onto a fresh HDD.

I hope that this, the first of many, will become a great way of seeing what happens in my life in 2009.  I also hope to see my photography skills get better and better as I learn more about setting up photographs and learning more about the capabilities of my camera.  I am starting off with my Fuji FinePix S5600 but will soon be stepping into the world of DSLR’s with a Nikon D40!

Keep up to date with my Flickr Stream and maybe even add me as a contact if you wish and see how my year pans out.

I'll have to dig out some SLR tutorials for you, they came in very handy when I took the plunge with mine! Now you've got me looking at the D700, damn you!! I waaaaaaaant it, so pretty! LOL

P.S. Why does the country selection on 'add comment' start with that a Gravatar setting? Curious.

Thanks Smile

I've had a quick look at the auto country selection issue, in IE8 for me it pics up UK, same in Firefox.  However in Opera and Safari (Windows) it selects not specified.  hmmmm, I think it is based on the locale settings in the browser.  I can't change them on Safari and in Opera it is set to be en-gb - think it needs more investigation Smile

Good project (and nice first photograph!)

I'm doing that DailyMugshot thing personally - although I forgot yesterday as I was buried in code Tong Terrible start!

Also - the country dropdown thing works for me (FF3).

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
