In December of 2015, I did my first photo a day project. I challenged myself to take one photo every day for 31 days, and I shared the results here. It was harder than I expected, but I really enjoyed looking more closely at the world around me every day and finding interesting things to capture. I must have forgotten about doing this project again in 2016, but I’m glad I remembered in time to do it again this December!
This year I stuck to the square photo format, but decided not to limit myself to black and white photos—there was so much rich, beautiful color in my December this year, and I wanted to share it. A few days I struggled to find inspiration for a photo, but travel to Baltimore and England, as well as many festive holiday events made this year’s project a little easier. I think December is one of the easiest months to capture—the abundance of light, decorations, snow (this year!) and good cheer make for a wide range of potential subjects. I’d like to try this project again in the summer, and see how the mood of the set changes.
All of these photos were taken on my iPhone, but I upgraded to an iPhone 8 plus about a third of the way through the month, which made a marked improvement to the photo quality. They are shared in order of the date they were taken.
