The Fifteen Minute Photo Project



I tried something new.  Something I’ve never seen or heard of before.

It really was an effort to gear up for Ali Edwards’ Week In The Life project.  I wanted to be more conscious about my photo taking this time around, but I knew I would need a way to keep myself in the game… especially towards the tail end of the project.  The ‘dog days’, if you will.

It occurred to me that perhaps setting a timer for every 5 minutes – a reminder to snap a quick photo – might be just the thing.  ‘The Five Minute Photo Project’ has a bit of a ring to it.  Then I did the math.  Turns out, that’s a. lot. o. photos.

So I pared back.

Introducing The Fifteen Minute Photo Project, folks.  Cue applause.

Fifteen Minute Photo01For reals, that’s the first photo I took.

After that, my timer went off every 15 minutes.  I stopped what I was doing and took a quick photo of what was happening in my world at that moment, reset the timer and then got right back to life.  Fifteen seconds tops. (See how that ties in there too.)

Then we get to the fun stuff.  Kids, carpool line and such.
