Almost exactly a year ago, I started playing with a 'real' camera and fell in love with it. I started a '365 project' where each day I would take a picture of something. It lasted a good 42 days until the cold, dark, rainy Portland evenings spent with my cat and dog got to me and I began to feel uninspired, but I still really like the idea. Recently, 365 married both gratitude and Instagram and now 365 grateful Instagram photography projects have emerged with popularity. This sort of formalized project is a bit much for me as it turns out, and regardless, pretty much everything I point my camera at (>365 things) is something I am grateful for. Anyways, this was from the start of 2013 and I like it because, yes, I'm grateful for backpacking.
