The Daily Photo

Starting on January 1st 2017 I embarked on a 365 photo project. My aim was to take one photo a day and post it to the first website/photoblog I set up. I called the blog – logically – The Daily Photo (no longer in existence…)

It was a fun project, but it turned out to be quite hard to take and post a photo a day, so on some days, I posted photos from previous days.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing though, and I now wish that I had kept The Daily Photo going, as it was very motivating.

What I found with my daily photo project was that it tended to make me think outside the box,

On almost each and every one of the 365 days in 2017, I carried a compact digital camera (or my Nikon DSLR) and started looking for photo opportunities in all sorts of strange places. I also received my fair share of strange looks from passers-by from time to time too.

Some days I would photograph people in the street; other days a bit of a building or architecture; and other times something quite inane such as part of a bicycle wheel. I started to realize the opportunities to take daily photos was only limited by my imagination.

When I posted the photos to The Daily Photo website I didn’t add any long story and in some cases no explanations about the photo at all. I did it just for fun.

And because I did it just for fun the only archive I have of those photos is what I downloaded from my website when I eventually closed it down.

Unfortunately, I have no large, high-resolution copies of the images, and that is in part due to the fact that I tended to shoot smaller size images so that they could be uploaded without too much effort put into resizing or post-processing if necessary.

Anyway, as part of my keep-sane-during-the-Covid-19-scare I decided to share some of my daily photos from 2017, and in making this selection of daily photos I was surprised by how many I had converted to black and white.

Most photographs were taken in and around Invercargill, but a couple were taken during trips further afield to Christchurch and Dunedin.

Rick - The Occasional Photoblogger

I am Invercargill photographer Rick Harvey – aka The Occasional Photoblogger. I consider myself an opportunist photographer and enjoy taking photographs of ordinary things I see around me, and try to make them appear a little less ordinary and interesting, and while it is always nice to have others appreciate my images, my primary goal is to take photographs that make me happy.
