Getting to Know You

I have an idea for a fun collaborative project to do here on my blog.  I want to get your opinion and see if you would be interested in joining me. 

I have really been missing taking pictures lately so I wanted to come up with a fun new way to incorporate photography back into my blog.  I thought it might be fun to think of a different theme every month and have you guys take pictures of how you interpret that theme.  It can be very literal or you can go totally crazy and abstract with it.  You could submit a photograph as is or you can have fun playing with editing and do whatever you want.  There aren't really any rules.  It's all about having fun!  The project will be called In Your Eyes.

I have seen people do variations of this on their blog before and I loved it.  I thought it would be fun to get my blog readers involved and I would get to take lots of pictures again.

Don't worry if you don't have a fancy camera.  I use a little Canon Powershot SD1200 camera and my iPhone.  This project is more about working together creatively and getting to know each other.  :-)

Here's how it will work...
  1. On the first day of the month I will post the theme for that month with some of my own pictures.
  2. At the end of the month I will post the pictures you send to me in a blog post.
  3. I will also upload the pictures into a group on Flickr and have a button on the blog so you can go there anytime to see all of the pictures.  

What do you think?  Does this sound like something you would be interested in participating in?

Yeah, not sure what was causing it. Of course it was on a day that I asked everyone to comment about a new project. I thought everyone hated the idea for half the day! ;) I'm glad you're going to join us, Taryn! :)
