I'm really enjoying the photo a week format -- a lot less pressure than the challenges, and I don't have to worry about DNMC because I am the boss! So far, I've only missed one week. 8)

Mine is still going. It's either up to date, or just one week behind, I think, but close.

Okay, 3 month check-in. :) I've noticed some PAW's have dropped by the wayside. I've updated my links and deleted some that weren't current (pretty much anything that hasn't been updated since February). I also noticed that I was missing some from folks that have been commenting so I've added a few too and also threw a few PAD's that I enjoy following.

If I've missed you and you'd like to be added, just let me know.

Keep up the great work people! :-)


Mine's still going, planning to post this week's shot today.

Can you post the blogspot code for your list so that I can update mine?

Still in but about 3 days behind. This is a good way to make me think :-)

I'm a bit behind. As i am updating my entire website, the update of my blog depends on the uploading of the new images there. But i'll get there soon.

I'm still going - haven't posted week 12 yet, but will get to it tomorrow. I am really behind on commenting -hopefully I will get to them this weekend!

Apologies but as I was in India on business I have been unable to post to my PAW. However, I have managed to put a couple of pics up from India, which I hope you will enjoy.

My PAW week 6 is in. I got a little behind in my posting (new job). I'm caught up now and promise to continue. Here is my blog. bvlindalou

I've been taking theme photos each week, but I'm still behind in processing because of the computer crash I had.

So how is it going ? How is sticking to one theme for longer than a week treating you ?

Having become disillusioned with my efforts in the challenges I have found the PAW to be therapeutic and a chance to regain some discipline. It is also "eye opening" as I find that I am stopping to take shots I have seen before (without being shot at :-) as well as appreciating the commonplace in my life in a totally new way. I may even be getting better at this photography thing... maybe!

Bottom line: it is a good thing to be doing.

I have this page for URL if you want to check them out: WAP participants

Added to mine (week 6): WAP-blog

Aight, cool. I was kinda hoping to have a unified theme all the way around. But awesome; is there a place for sharing URL's for blogs?

The idea is that you come up with your own PAW theme and stick to that theme for a year.

The other part of that is that I've found the more people I tell about what I'm trying to do, the more help and suggestions I get. Each time I explain a project idea, someone comes up with a great suggestion or opens a door that helps me move forward. E.g., getting access you wouldn't normally get or introduced to a friend of a friend who can help, that sort of thing. I've been really surprised at the opportunities that keep popping up once you commit to doing something and tell people about it.


very good point.

I need to convince one of the park rangers to let me go to the top of thier fire watch tower:)

I find the same sort of thing, that having committed to the project, it gives me more motivation but also perhaps more importantly a legitimate reason to do things. So if someone questions what you are doing or why you are doing it, there's something concrete to explain to them. Rather than just 'oh I like taking pictures' there's the more valid sounding 'I'm doing a project focusing on the theme of x'

Least it works that way for me.


exactly. I already have in my head, if asked, what i will say. and i have been carrying business cards as well. so instead of looking like some wierdo taking pictures i can say that i am doing a study of the state of Georgia in photos.

I started late but it has already helped me. my theme seems boring (the georgia one) butone problem i have is being lazy and or scared to take a shot. I drive about 2 to three hours most days and I always drive past things and think "that would be a cool picture" but i never stop or take it. mostly because i am scared of the cops harrasing me. But since Is tarted this i have not only stopped I ahve turned around and gone back when i missed smoething. I have already gotten some very cool shots (at least i think so0 and some even cooler ones that i may submit to free study. Hell i even took a candid today when i was less than 20 feet and he was looking at me, then I pulled into the yard of a really spooky as abandoned house and I jsut knew I was gonna get shot but i did it anyway (and didn't get shot:P)

Since i choose something which i don't usually do, it has allowed me to experiment and slowly find a way in it.

The immediate benefit I am seeing in mine is that I've got a bw entry in one of the challenges that is actually above a 5. (That's good for me). I'm becoming more comfortable with the various conversions, but more importantly, what to do before I snap that makes bw more effective.
