The wonderful BF came and met me for lunch, and bought me lactose-free gelato. Lemon flavoured. Yum.

A photo a day? Really?! I was admiring those who have done it in the past, and commenting on how amazing those who are committed to doing it this year are – when one turned to me and said “you know, you could do it too…”

Could I? Well – I am not going to know unless I try right?

The 365 Project is a photography project where you document a year of your life by taking a daily photo. I hope it will improve my photography, help document my 2011 FREE year, and add to my creativity.

So here goes – the start of my very own 365 project. Fingers crossed I make it to the end!
