After Daily Photo Blogging

I started daily photo blogging exactly one year and one day ago. I only fell off the wagon a couple of weeks ago. We are still getting used to the new life schedule with our little daughter. (She will be 6 months old next week.) So going out shooting was not as high a priority as it was in the months before she was born. As I have written before – the main reason to start the daily blog was to force myself shooting more. I am still taking many, many pictures – just not ones that I want to share with the world. They will end up in books or be hung on a wall in our home or as presents for grand parents etc.

  • Within one year I shared at total of 306 photos, all taken pretty much the same day or a couple of days before posting them.

Now, I still like the idea of sharing my images.

So, starting today I will go back into my archives and post images from our travels from the last couple of years. Not necessarily in chronological order, but I will try to add some (written) context to each image or set of images – I am not sure what the format (or the schedule for that matter) will be exactly. And they won’t all be black and white. (Crazy, I know.) To be most flexible, I will just post them here on this blog.

I created a new „From the Archive“ category. If you want to subscribe to just those posts, use this RSS Feed.

The first post in this series will take you to a market in Da Nang.

This is my brand new niece, Liv. She’s one month already, and I finally met her in person! ❤️

The fifth WordCamp Europe took place in Paris last week. I am repeating myself each year, when I say how great it was!

I had the role of photography team lead this year, which meant that I somehow ended up shooting fewer images than in the years before. Nevertheless – here are my favorite photos (that I took) from WordCamp Europe 2017.

Last weekend we headed to Scotland to attend our friends’ wedding. It was a great couple of days in Scotland. The wedding was wonderful, most lovingly put together – with so many caring friends and family. Obviously I took a large amount of images.

Today, I have been photo blogging daily for 212 days (7 months), so I thought it is time for a little recap.

Bad news first: I missed a few days.

One day in February – can’t say why exactly, I just forgot/wasn’t in the mood to take a picture that day (or a couple of days before) and I didn’t feel like taking a random image from the archive.

When I set the rules last year, I decided, that scheduling posts in advance, was OK. But the reason behind starting all this, was to get out and shoot more. So I let that day slip, and did not post an image.

I missed some more days in early March, when my daughter was born. Trust me, I shot a lot of images that day and the following days and still do. (She will be my most photographed subject in no time. She probably is already…) But I just didn’t feel like sharing those very intimate moments, so no new posts for a total of six days.

That still makes 205 photos in 212 days.

I am pretty happy with that. Daily photo blogging has made me go out more and I am back to taking my camera everywhere, which – in turn – enabled me to take more pictures, which was the initial goal of this exercise. 😊 (Getting a new X100F earlier this year was/is also a great motivator, but that’s for another post.)
