Well, stephiepenguin did a post on pictures that she took during 2009. So I'm pinching the idea and doing the same. All pictures of people, many of whom are holding Lex for some reason, and they're in chronological order. Every photo was taken by me, or was pretty much entirely set up by me and then I had someone else press the button.
I was quite pleased when I compiled this. I had felt like I'd hardly taken any pictures this year, but in actual fact I had hardly taken any travel pictures. There's plenty with people.
Goal for next year - more pictures of people (and hopefully some travel pics).
I do like it as a concept. I think though that this year I shall try to pick great shots and pop copies into a separate folder, rather than going through a year's worth of pictures in one day and picking out my favs.
Oh, I agree - it's a lot of work but I felt it was great to do. It was less work for me because I did it over a couple of weeks, though. :o)
Incidentally, to try and make it easier I'm going to tag them with something indicative as I upload them to flickr, so when I want them all at the end of the year they'll already be there, selected. Since I upload so many photos all the time anyway, I figure this is the easiest way to streamline the process.
