I am setting myself an endurance challenge for 2023.

One photo every day.

If I miss a day, I can post one photo shot in the last seven days, a maximum of 12 such substitutions over the year.

Any style, any technique and any equipment.

 

Feel free to test yourselves in this challenge. They are usually fun.

 

I might not post daily, finding the time to edit and post the same day is sometimes difficult, as you know.

Good luck on a full year. I competed in a friendly 30 day challenge this past October in another forum, and found it really exhausting but did it.

I'd be interested in a 52 week, one photo per week challenge.

 

Here's the one it competed in, my only one...using the same fixed focal length lens every day for a month. Made me a better photog.

I did an analog 36-day challenge some years back.

36 on 35, an art project. Part 1, day 1-12 - NikonForums.com

 

If you want to do a 52-week challenge, just start one and invite others if you want to.

I'll joint in, but may have to can it as my new kitchen is arriving in two weeks, & I'm duty-bound to fit it myself.

 

This evening rather wet.

Behold - the traffic speed camera - silently waiting for an unsuspecting motorist.

Went out this afternoon to a site I'd been meaning to take pictures of for awhile.

Bright sunshine.

 

Part of Kent defences during WWII, & built around 1940.

This is a type 24 Pillbox, which has a public footpath next to it & is in a farmer's field.

 

This is one of a series of pictures which will appear later.

Now appearing at Margate sea front.

A mural which has usually got dustbins in front of it - not today though.

We ventured into Canterbury city centre today.

This is Westgate Tower, with it it's attendant one-way traffic system.

What I was looking for here was a digital representation of HP5 shot through a 300° filter, developed in Microphen, copied on Emaks K888 gradation 3, developed in Dektol and toned with a Kodak selenium toner.

Epple Bay this afternoon.

I would be nervous about living this close to the sea.

The cliffs (chalk) under these home are crumbling.

This artwork is named " Berättelser om natten", which translates to Tales at Night. I thought that a wet, foggy evening would go well with the subject.
