Several people from around the world, each with their own vision. Photo 366-2012 is all about sharing our individual views and learning from each other, to better ourselves every day.

Day 366: “Sparkle”
Last day of the year. No insanely epic photo to finish the Project 366 with, but one that makes me happy. Which is probably the most important thing I learned - to not stress so much over getting that perfect photo, but to just enjoy what I’m doing. Quit making it a chore and use it to just better yourself and better your craft.
I hope I can follow that in all of 2013. Happy New Year to everyone! It’s been an amazing journey with all of you!

Day 365: “Epic”
We decided that we needed to have one more major outing for 2012, so we went to Hana and hiked the Pipiwai trail to Waimoku falls. It was such a surreal experience in a very majestic place. The bamboo forest was incredible. This tree was near the beginning of the forest.
We got rained on pretty bad, but we saw just what our camera gear was capable of. And when we got to the fall at the end of the trail, I managed to grab a couple of shots I was decently happy with, but because of the massive amounts of mist flying through the air and the on and off rain, I didn’t get one that I really liked.
What a hell of a way to close out 2012.

Day 364: “Sake Bomb”
Went to Japengo for dinner with my new colleagues and friends. While sitting at the bar, I saw this cool little vase. Dawn said it’s what one would imagine a sake bomb to look like if it were an actual bomb. We all agreed.

Day 366 : “Oh, original …”
Will count how many times I put a photo of the Tour Eiffel, but that good old Iron Lady saved me more than once during this project, so I’ll end it with her.
You know what ? I liked this 366 daily photo project.
Even though it has not been easy all day to think about taking that damn picture, it’s been a good exercise. I can’t say that I’m happy of all the photos I took, but some pictures are worth it.
Lessons learned during that year (but not applied):
- Do not wait the last ten minutes before midnight to take a picture if you want something at least not boring
- Find a small camera because you don’t want to bring your DSLR in your bag all days
- UnRAW and upload your photos daily. This will avoid a 20 photos uploading / commenting in a line.
- Give yourselfs some themes like I did on the three first months : compulsory format 16:9, 2:3, then 3:2, or the texture theme that Yukio began on forth month (if I’m right).
- Find another platform than Tumblr. Sorry guys, I might continue to upload pictures daily, but will do it on flickr only. I really don’t like tumblr board. Hard to post comments, long to upload, hard to organize … I like the customizable part of the site, but this is too complicated for me and especially for a daily use.
Anyway, I’ll continue to follow you guys, because I’ve been happy to browse the community project during that whole year. And you’ve really been inspirative with your awesome pictures.
Have a happy new year, all.

Day 366: “Last Gift of the Year”
She drew me this interesting house. She was shaking the drawing which is why it looks blurry.
Day 365: “Unpack”
Ugh, I really really dislike unpacking.
Day 364: “Ey Little Lady”
So today I went back home (insert really sad crying face here). On the plane home this little girl sat next to me and she was the cutest haole five year old girl ever. This is what I know of her from what she told me:
And that’s all I can think of right now. She fell asleep on my arm. Cutest girl ever.
Day 363: “Great Wheel”
Rode this today. It was pretty good. I really liked it. It was a really good day. I did another photoshoot at the park. The park has a lake right next to it and I was really excited. And then after that I played on the playground with a bunch of haole little kids and their haole parents kept looking at me. It was great.
