Week 1 - 1/52 'New'

January 08, 2013  •  2 Comments

Some of you may remember that last year I started out on a 365 adventure the day I began my career break....however that adventure was cut short in September for a number of reasons. I have had a few people asking me would I do a 365 this year and I honestly don't think I could commit to it in 2013.

Instead I have decided to do a 52 week project where you take one photo a week based on a specific theme. I decided to see would there be anyone else interested in joinging me and to my surprise there is a growing group of us over on Facebook www.facebook.com/groups/52unlaoised and Flickr www.flickr.com/groups/unlaoised52project. Please feel free to join us, the more the merrier, and you don't even have to be from Laois ;-)

The first week's theme was 'New', and I was a bit stumped at first, I knew I could always take a photo of the lovely new pink ( I am calling it purple though) tripod that I got as a Christmas present from my family, but I felt for the first week I should be putting more thought into it.

I got thinking about what my hopes and dreams and wishes are for 2013. For some reason I am detecting a slightly more positive and hopeful approach to 2013 in people than there was this time last year, and I think that is something vitally important for us to hang onto...hope.

One of my main wishes is to create and capture as many precious moments as I can in 2013, so I decided to take a bunch of old family photos (apologies to sisters, parents, cousins and friends who may appear in them!), throw them on my kitchen table and then mix in some more recent photos of my two favourite people in the world Tim & Mic and take a photo of them. I don't want to replace these older photos, more build on a collection of memories by capturing the new memories throughout 2013.

(For those interested, and I am sure you already know this, I cheated and used a Polaroid Action in Photoshop!)
