Back in 2015 I participated in a photo project that ended up being very rewarding, #WE35 from The Photo Frontier. If you scroll though the archives here on my blog, especially for the posts back in 2015, you will see a lot of posts and images from that project.
As I said, I found that project to be very rewarding, not only did it provide a much needed motivation to get out and shoot, but to get out a shoot things I might not normally shoot, it also lead to making a lot of new online photography friends. It really was a win-win no matter how you look at it.
In addition to the community that has developed around #WE35, it really does help photographers see things a little differently. The whole object behind the project is group assignments each month that are shot at a focal length of 35mm.
The image above is my January 2017 #ExpeditionWE35 submission. Each year of the project we have started the year out by sharing an image of our mailbox. If you haven’t scrolled through my #WE35 archives yet, here is a link to my mailbox back in 2015.
I have to confess that I didn’t really shoot as much as I would have liked in 2016, there were a lot of reasons behind that, but I am truly looking forward to 2017.
