I downloaded a photoshop action from a site called deviantart and left a comment which included a link to my blog. Georgina Illingworth from Leeds, Yorkshire, UK downloaded that same action and followed the link to my blog. She left a comment on Day 114 with a link to her blog, A Message In A Milk Bottle where I found a link to a site called Lost and Taken which offers free textures. My desire to use a texture led me to take this photo. Isn't the internet cool?
If you're from a country other than the United States I'd love for you to leave a comment and introduce yourself. Blogger provides some basic stats so I know you're out there. Today I had a page view from Slovenia. In the last week I've had seven page views from Belgium, and I've had a total of 73 page views from Germany since I started the blog.
Thanks for the comment Georgina and I hope you get your spider problem under control.
There are many reasons people do a 365 project. For me, it's an exercise to try to overcome perfectionism. I wanted to do a 365 long before I ever tried it. My main reason for not trying was that some days the pictures would suck. Then someone pointed out that by avoiding the bad pictures I was also missing out on the good ones. Day 24 is a good example of that. So, here is a bad one that it pains me to post but it's the best I have. For more about constraints fueling creativity check out this video.
Spent the day at Six Flags Great America. I didn't bring my camera in because I didn't want to lose it on the roller coasters but on the way home I got a shot at another Andrew Bush style car portrait.
