365 Photo Challenge...I'm in!

I've decided to give this project a shot for 2009. I'm going to try my best to take a photo each day of the year and post it over at flickr with the tag 365photos. I posted photos from each of the first three days of 2009 and a bonus photo of my wife at Point Reyes National Seashore on New Year's Eve (click the link or see the embedded slide show below).

Here is what I hope to gain from participating in this project:

1. Many of the folks who did this last year mentioned that by taking a photo every day they improved their photography skills. I hope the same happens in my case!

2. I hope that I improve in my ability to notice some of the little things that I often overlook each day.

3. Participating in this project should help me make a case with my wife that I need a new camera! I'm guessing most of my photos will be taken with my iPhone and I'm not all to impressed with the colors and detail on my first few pictures. This very well may be the most challenging goal of them all!

4. Many other folks from around the globe are participating in this challenge as well and I'm looking forward to checking out their work and getting ideas for potential photos of my own.

Good luck to everyone who is participating in the 2009 365 Photos project!
