Project XLV – Review of my 365 Project

Well I made it to the end of my 365 Project XLV, documenting the year I spent as a 45 year old.

Day 365

Having started on my birthday in 2016, I ended up finishing on my Birthday as well after missing a day somewhere in the middle (well actually I missed 3 but caught up the other two the following day).

It’s been an interesting year personally – changing jobs last summer for example. And an interesting one globally with surprise election wins for Brexit and Trump.

Day 95

Over all I must say in enjoyed the challenge of taking a photo a day and certainly got some nice shots that I would have missed if I hadn’t been forcing myself to look for something;

Day 77

Unsurprisingly, the majority of my shots were taken with my phone (72%) compared to other cameras; 5D Mark II (22%), Lumix TZ60 (5%) and Powershot G10 (1%).

And I kept a tally of the sorts of shots I took which broke down as

Objects 50%

Landscape 13%

Street 7%

Day 81

Food 9%
