A Daily Picture for a Year

1 September 2015 to 31 August 2016

About

I will take a picture every day and publish it here but it will not necessarily be published on the day taken.

I reserve the right to crop but will not edit in any other way.

My aim is to pick seven pictures every week (from Monday to Sunday) in seven different categories, selected from the following:

Birds

RSCN4509

I hope to be able to do a different bird species for every picture. The same species may be used twice to illustrate sexual dimorphism, breeding plumage or juvenile birds.

Trees

DSCN4502

I like trees.

Flowers

DSCN4516

Signs

DSCN4481 - Copy

Signs and notices are everywhere.

Textures

DSCN4544

More controversial. Not everyone will like these but I do. They may be every day walls, pavements, clouds, tree bark or vegetation – the sort of patterns that could make wallpaper.

Be prepared for a lot of these.

Animals

CowHead_Slim_04Sep15

I would like to do this category often but it will be difficult. I am aiming for wild animals but may include pets and others.

Insects

Swallowtail_StFelixdeVilladeix_17May08

I may be optimistic including a separate category for these. They will probably be rarer than Animals.

Plants

DSCN4543

Much of what makes the plant world so attractive is more than just the flowers.

Landscapes

DSCN4528

I don’t want too many landscapes. They are not easy to do well in a small picture and lots of countryside views could all look quite similar.

Buildings

DSCN4537

I will try sometimes to highlight a single building rather than a broad landscape.

Objects

DSCN4546

A bit of a catch-all when other categories fail. I may need this when weather prevents outside photography.

Other

DSCN4532

I need a category that can be used when all others fail. It can include mixed pictures, close-ups and cryptic views.

If a picture can fit into two or more Categories I will decide where to put it! (Pictures shown here are to illustrate the categories and will not be included.)
