Running entirely in parallel to my blog for most of the past year I’ve been a member of this site; https://365project.org/ I log in every day and see what photos have been uploaded, and write a comment on some of them. I haven’t rally explored the site perhaps as much as I should have done. Until recently that is. I’ve found out that 365project is a much deeper community than just uploading a picture every day. I found that they run competitions.
Two that I would definitely be interested in are street photography and eye of the beholder (pictures taken from unusual angles). I used to be a member of a physical (as opposed to a virtual club, such as the Gosport Unofficial Camera Club on Facebook). I used to really enjoy that, but then we moved. I did go to the Gosport Camera Club, but for some reason I can’t explain I felt uncomfortable (well before covid).
I’ve said in previous posts that I am conservative (small ‘c’). Over the last few days I have really begun to conquer that – mainly in the area of taking pictures of things that I would previously have hesitated in taking – especially if there was somebody around. The 365project competitions have given both impetus and the inclination to overcome my reluctance to embarrass myself – and not even think of it as embarrassment.
I know that there are other aspects of 365 that I haven’t explored. I shall take the time to do so.
