15 May – Take a Photograph of Your Life
Whether you are a professional photographer or you are a keen amateur, do start clicking before 15th May.
15 May marks a global photo project – in a single day, A Day.org are going to capture everyday life all over the world. You log in to join and as far as I can make out, upload your photo there although I think if people upload their photos on their blogs too, it would be wonderful.
It is intended to be a truly democratic project, uniting professional and amateur photographers all over the world as they unite in recording their everyday lives under selected categories at aday.org.
Prominent leaders all over the world are supporting it, from Mary Robinson to Desmond Tutu, Richard Branson to Jan Eliasson.
The collected images will form a web resource and one thousand images will be selected for a global exhibition and a book.
The three main categories are Home, Work and Connections, you can read more about each one here. Apart from being important for historical and research reasons, it sounds like it will be fun to be a part of it.
My very amateur photo above was taken some time ago of my daughter with some baby chicks. Come along to the KLCK bloggers network in Carlow on Monday evening if you can – perfect timing as Damien Carroll will be showing us all how to improve our photography for our blogs.
