One year #walkingtoworktoday
Happy anniversary! Exactly one year ago I started the project #walkingtoworktoday. Each day I take one photo. It started with one photo a day on my way to work (like the projects name). I was influenced by Michael Surtees, who started the whole thing. In May I wrote a little first résumé. After a while I decided to shoot one photo each day, not only on my way to work. Sometimes there were cooler subjects to take photos of in the afternoon or late at night. Sometimes I forgot to take the picture in the morning.
Within 365 days I took 257 photos. All photos are collected on flickr, in the #walkingtoworktoday set. There are pictures of funny things, awkward things, interesting things, random things. Photos from several places all over Germany: mostly Hamburg, but also Berlin, Munich, Würzburg, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart. During that year I was in London, Venice, Shanghai, an New York. Even one photo from above the clouds.
There are photos of street art, architecture, food, people, animals, tv program, cars and many more. There is one photo I even called my best photo 2010.
Flickr offers to look at a map of photos from a special set. Here you can find the map of #walkingtoworktoday. You can look through the set and see where the photos were shot.
Tomorrow starts year 2, and I am looking forward to write my report in 365 days. The collection of photos is a great way to see what happened during the year, like a visual diary. You should try it.
