Taking on a Project!

About a week ago, I was talking to a co-worker when she told me she was completing an Ali Edward's project that really sparked my interests.  Now, granted, my friend was just completing a project that she started 2 years ago, but nonetheless, the project struck my interests.

It's called Week in a Life 2011.

With your handy camera attached to your side, you record every aspect of your daily life.  

Interesting, yes?

I know, I know, it is a bit like blogging, but perhaps with a more personal, journaling touch.

I realized that in order to do this, I would need a new pocket camera.  Why? you ask!  Well, I learned a valid life lesson and decided that it is not always the best idea to share everything with one beloved grandson.  Granted, he did take some great photos from his vantage point, but the zoom button no longer works and I believe the SD card has been permanently damaged.  No worries!  It was only a 5 MP and purchased at the turn of the century.  Gawd, that sounds ancient!

So, last week, I took advantage of a HSN special and purchased a Panasonic Lumix 14MP 4X Zoom Digital Camera with a 4GB SD.

With that said, I am on my way to recording a week in my life ala Deb style!  (since I ain't no Ali Edwards!)

Wish me luck!

Please share your project thru blogging. Jamie and I leave for Italy in two months. Guess who will be traveling with us? None other than Ali Edwards! Ali is jamie's idol. She is extremely excited to travel with Ali throughout Tuscany for two glorious weeks. I'm excited too.

I was just thinking this week about doing something like this. I was then going to end the day with posting, via blog or FB, 1 photo that summed up or was the highlight of the day. I thought this would be a good way to really be mindful of my life, my day to day by sorting back through the photos, really noticing the moments & then selecting 1. Also when you stop & photograph something it makes you mindful in that moment.
