After a very hectic year last year, I have decided  to do Project 52 again, and FINISH this year!

Hope some of you ladies would like to join me. Add your name and topic if you are intrested biggrin.gif

My topic is: The outside world

Here is this weeks shot


week1 by silver wattle, on Flickr

I usually do PAD in January so will do that again this year but would love to do Project 52.  I'm not sure what theme I will follow, maybe Black & White or Grateful which could be pretty much anything.  Is there going to be a Flickr group.

Beautiful shot silverwattle, the colours are so vibrant

Good luck Silverwattle, I also had to abandon my photography last year due to returning to work. I don't think I could manage a project 52 but will stalk if that is okay. I will try for a project 12. One of my aims for this year is to get back into the weekly challenges.

Winkwink...what is PAD?  There was a flickr group last year. I am sure we can start one if we have interest!

Feistycat stalk away biggrin.gif for some reason I found project 12 harder. I think I kept thinking I have a whole month to take a shot....and the months just flowed by.  I am also going to do the weekly challenges this year.

Silverwattle, PAD is photo a day.  I'd love to do a 365 but I just don't have that sort of commitment.

Happy to join. I can do one a week. One per day was just too hard last year... LOL

Gorgous photo Silverwattle!

I've done PAD, P52 and P12 over the last 3 years and I found the P12 the easiest.  Not sure if I'll do one one this year though.

Best of luck!

I would love to do it, I often drop by the wayside when I attempt these tho, I would love to get a full year done.  My topic will be "inspire". . .I think I will attempt to take shots that inspire me, especially with lovely light, I wonder if I can inspire myself for 52 weeks?. .

I'll try!  Topic wise, Anything Goes...again!

Will try again this year. The Camera did not come out much last year, but after a year of having hardly any photos, this may help motivate.

Sounds like an idea to try out, dad did the 365 challenge a few years ago and had major idea troubles towards the end. 52 sounds like a much better option I think.

I'm doing a P52, still deciding on the theme, but think it will be "textures" as in adding textures to images.....as I've been playing with this lately.

Contemplated a 365, but working 4 days a week means there would be far too many "naff" shots in there!

Tries P12 last year but found it too hard as too much gap between shots and I lost enthusiasm for the project!

I'll probably go with a geeky/sci-fi theme, I have lots of related material to play around with so it could be fun.

I'm going again with snapshot in project 52 and nature's beauty in project 12. I did a project 12 and 52 last year and it worked well for me. I was contemplating a 365 but really don't think I would get the time to once I've gone back to work.

I started with Micah last year, so am doing the same this year too.

Rightieho, I think I'll join you in the P12 Bec.  Should we just use last years Flickr group?

Great!  My project will be Observations (nice and open so I don't have to think too hard...)!

Do you want to change the title of the Flickr group to Project 12 - EB or maybe add 2013 to it?
