You may be asking yourself what is a 365 Photography project anyway and why am I doing it. I first heard about the idea a few years ago from a photographer I knew and when he explained it to me I thought it was a brilliant idea. It is simply me challenging myself to make at least one photograph each day for 365 days. I will be sharing my photographs on this blog and would love to hear from you. I guess everyone may have a different reason for starting such a project, but for me I am using it to further hone my photography skills. In the past couple of months I have been busy with my new job and spending time with the family and as a result I have taken less and less photographs. I am hoping that by doing this photography challenge I will once again make time for my photography. Keep your fingers crossed for me:)
For my first day of the challenge I was confronted with gray and overcast skies. Not the really the best conditions for making a beautiful photograph and as result I headed out with the idea making a black and white print with heavy textures. With this in mind I travelled to the old train station in town. According to Canada-Rail.com the original train station was built in 1854 by the Great Western Railway. It was replaced by another station in 1889 and was later enlarged in 1946. This station remained in service until 1979.
If you are interested in challenging your photography skills and joining me in doing your own 365 Photography Project I have created a Facebook group which your are welcome to join and post your photographs!
