Welcome to Sanford 365 – A year in Photos and Videos

Welcome to Sanford 365 – A year in Photos and Videos

Yes, I am taking on the challenge! 365 days, 365 photos – and at the end I might become a better photographer and you might get a pretty good impression of life in Sanford, Florida, home town of choice. This project was inspired by another 365 challenge that I came across. Check it out, it’s really interesting and you might get inspired, too ;o)

So here’s basically what I will do:

Take a picture a day

Post pictures at least 3 times a week

Each picture will have its own blog entry (so on some days there might be several new pictures and blog entries, but be assured they are all taken on different days

The pictures will mainly show scenes, objects and people in Sanford, Florida, but on some days I might be on an excursion to other areas in Central Florida, Florida, or the World ;o) Can’t promise anything but the next year might take me to Colombia, Panama, Germany, Italy and France. I might compare these places to Sanford though to keep the images in context.

I am excited to take on this challenge and a bit nervous, too. All I’ll have to do is making it my habit to take a picture (at least) a day! So let’s take on this year, starting on September 18, 2008, ending on September 17, 2009.

Hope you enjoy my pics and feel free to post comments anytime.

    Just kind of confused…thought this wae 365 days in Sanford? Not the surrounding cities…like Altamonte and Lake Mary?

      Hi Christina,
      Sorry, don’t want to confuse anyone here 😉 Anyway, the challenge is mainly about Sanford FL but throughout the year my daily life leads me to other areas as well, especially Lake Mary since Lake Mary and Sanford are overlapping in so many areas. On top of that I like to travel and explore new areas whenever I can. Most 365 challenges are based on the idea to take a picture a day, whatever it is; I just figured by adding a constraint it would be more interesting. Since I live in Sanford and love Sanford I added that “A year in Sanford” constraint. Well, hope I didn’t confuse you even more now… Thanks for posting your comment though, I always appreciate feedback 🙂

    I am Taylor’s dad.
    Sometimes he would invite me to go with him. We really enjoyed ourselves.
    Good luck on your 365!

    Hi, Wouldn’t you know that I would find this great blog at the VERY END of your 365 journey. I’m going to take this rainy day to sit here and look at your blog from beginning to end. I don’t promise that I will read everything, but I am so excited to see your pics. My husband, son and I moved away from Sanford 6 years ago and I have missed Central Florida so very much. So I am going to be remembering and discovering through your photography…thank you! What a cool thing to do…Have a nice trip to wherever you go next!
