There are many photographic projects on the Internet that encourage people to get out with their cameras and get snapping – the 365 project is a great example, encouraging people to document a year of their life by taking a photo every day. However, I’m not that disciplined.
I’ve tried doing the 365 project in the past, but it only lasted a few months. Recently I read about Ten on Ten; the idea here being to take a photo every hour for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of each month. This seemed more like me, but even that seemed it might be a bit hard to keep up.
My solution, Five on 5! On the 5th of every month I will make a grand effort to get out and take 5 photos to share. It’s easy to get caught up in work, family and life in general, so I hope that this will be a nice way to set aside some time each month to get out with the camera and see what I can see.
As it was the 5th today, I started with a walk around the local cemetery. It was a miserable morning, but the dark clouds shifted and it was nice and peaceful wandering through the cemetery – the sound of waves crashing on one side, with the wind rustling through the trees on the other. Below are my 5 images for the first of my Five on 5.
