I'm afraid to look. Is there a cup involved?

I'm starting a new project where, for 365 days, I won't do anything in particular and won't blog about it.

I love these kinds of projects. Even if they do make me feel like a slacker.

so, this is our 365 post of the day???

I'm thinking that a 365 day post of Lady Gaga with an Apple product photos might just break the internet.

Rena has a much better eye than Ryan, IMHO.

Eh, some good, some worthlessly ordinary, and some so-so photographs. Mostly ordinary. Nothing I saw was worth studying or pausing on for long.

With 50 brazillion great photogs out there, why is Mefi focusing (sorry) on the mediocre lately?

Mostly ordinary.

I disagree. I thought the compositional quality and variety of the photos was far above average, especially given the assignment.

For some time I've thought to myself, I'm not an unintelligent guy, and I write good stuff sometimes. However I lack both a strong creative drive and a particularly high level of expert knowledge on a topic. But I'd love to GmyOB anyways. So once in a while I entertain the idea of picking some arbitrary topic and blog about my experience of doing it, or whatever, every day for 365 days. There's no punchline to this comment. It's true.

Er, I agree with IAmBroom. What sets this apart from the many, many 365 photo projects out there?

(They are lovely photographs, kudos to Ryan and Rena... They just aren't that different from a lot of the 365 projects I've seen on Flickr)

This whole 365 days thing is so 365 days ago.

No, it will roll on until there are enough sites doing this that some "humor" site will post a list of the "Top 10 365 day blogs featuring Lady Gaga with Apple products photos." Then, Apocalypse. Or ennui.

Wow, not that anybody else would care, but I actually know the male half of that duo and have been following this project. It's kind of crazy seeing this here. Many thanks auralcoral.
