52 Week Photography Project


What’s the story behind the 52 week photography project?

From July 2017 to July 2018, I joined 6 other photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!

It turned into a bit of a family affair actually with my sister Sharon, who takes amazing portraits and flowers, among other things; my brother-in-law Tim, who takes gorgeous shots of everything; my nephew Daniel a talented photographer; my husband Grant who started photography back in the old days of film, DIY developing and processing; my daughter Melanie, who is a travel blogger and photographer; as well as Alison, a close friend of my sister’s who is an experienced wedding photographer. You can read more about us all here on the About page.  I especially enjoy the regular contact it gives us all and the connections we make each week. (Unfortunately Alison has since withdrawn from the group).

I was assured that it’s all about creativity, not necessarily photographic expertise. I am enjoying the challenge of looking for suitable shots as soon as the next week’s theme is announced, it takes over my thinking until I’ve taken my shot and sent it in.   It’s also fun wondering what the others will come up with, you just never know what you’re going to get!

Each week for 52 weeks…

Each week we were given a new theme and must take a photo, add some words and submit it to Tim who will compile a post on Sunday night.  He then tells us our next theme…and so on for 52 weeks! We all enjoy a bit of a comment session after the post goes live, which is always fun.

I like to do a wrap-up post each week linking back to the 52 Week project blog’s page and these are my posts for the year.  I hope you also enjoy them.
