Ready, set...

My camera battery is charged, my notebook is ready, and I am getting excited about starting to document my week bright + early tomorrow morning.

A couple things to note as we get started:

1. Flickr Group : I started a Flickr group for anyone who is interested to share their photos + then your resulting projects over the next couple of weeks. You can find the group here: Document A Week In The Life

2. Over the course of the week I will be posting ideas/thoughts/etc about putting the album together along with samples of the photos I have taken each day. It's possible (and likely) that I will have more than one post each day.

Thanks for all the enthusiasm! I am excited to see so many people interested in this project.


A complete list of posts related to the week in the life project can be found here.

    Ali - quick question - is the first week (aka THE week) just photographing, collecting and writing? Or do you also put together the page(s) each day?
    I'm really excited to have something new to look forward to each day this week. Can't wait to start!

    I'm in :) I'm already doing a 365 Project and on the 12th of each month I participate in 12 of 12 so this new challenge is right up my alley. I take a bunch of photos each day so I look forward to really having something to do with them. :)

    Sounds great! I can't wait. The closest I've come to something like this is a journal I've been writing in for the month of Sept. Since it was my birth month and because we had family visiting, I thought it would be fun. I've been writing the highlights of the day, or what we did for the day, a quote I read and really liked, and also a few recipes that I tried and liked. I think I'll go back and add pictures.
    Anyway, can't wait for tomorrow!

    I love Delia's idea - that sounds like something cool to add.
    I started today (it's monday in NZ) and the hubby is into it as well. Fun!

    I started today :) I have been practicing to take pictures of the mundane for the last few days though, the peak was reached when taking a shot of my dirty dishes piling up!

    Thanks so much for this! I started on Saturday and at first I kept worrying that I was forgetting something or not doing it the "right" way...then I remembered that this is my project and however I do it is the right way! :)
    I'm headed over to check out the flickr group--again, thanks so much for giving me the motivation to do this...

    What a fun project! I have never taken my camera with me to the dentist's office, but today I did. When I asked after my check-up was over if I could take pictures for this project, my dentist donned her gloves and told me to get in the chair again while my hygienist took pictures! Also, I have to admit.....I have never taken a picture of my kitty's litter box, but cleaning the litter box every morning is part of my daily routine!!

    I found this project last week (Oct.9th) and I started yesterday (10/12/08) so I am running a couple of weeks behind everyone else but I am having fun already. I have never participated in something like this before. I think it is exactly what I need right now, something for ME.
    I found an old notebook of my Mom's (she passed away 4 years ago) to use and it has her handwriting in it too so it is extra special. This is giving me permission to take pictures of all of those things that I have wanted to but haven't because what would I ever use them for? I am even doing the writing, a day late, but I am doing it.
