My competition/friend/support-network in this challenge, Andrea Woo, left some comments on her blog about the photo throwdown we are currently involved in.
Part of the problem of having two journalists* embroiled in this battle** is we are probably deadline-oriented people (at least I am). I have never been able to do anything before the due date or, these days, the due minute. So, every evening as I realize I need my daily shot, I’m forced to take it. Sure, I’ve been ahead of the game sometimes, but that’s not a change in behaviour. I have always been a random photo-taker. Now I just have to hope those shots are good enough.
*I use that term loosely when describing what I do as a job.
**And by battle I mean struggle to not be the first one to tap out.
This evening, I was going to wait for the snow. But go figure, today’s the day I don’t need a last minute picture. I already have one ready to go.
In 11 days, I have taken just over 200 pictures – all on my iPhone and most using the hipstamatic app. I generally photowalk once a month, so hopefully I’ll be able to add DSLR or even film shots to the mix soon.
If nothing else, this exercise has got me looking more. Now I just need to look more for exercise. But that’s a whole other blog post.
