End of my two year 366-365 Project

Well two years in the making and thousands of miles to cover my double 365 projects. Two years have really flown by and a lot has happened, it has also made me realise we are not really on this earth for very long and the years are getting shorter with every years passing.

I will probably be doing some other type of project and will still possible be doing calendars again next year dependant on interest,  but I will not be taking a photo a day to post on that day this has just taken too much time. I will be still taking lots of photos possible still posting most days but not everyday, im not going to put that amount of pressure on for another year.

Here to a great new year see you soon

Thanks again for the like, loves, wows and comments it has meant a lot.

December 2017 last month of my two year project....

Only 31 day left of this two year project, I will really miss doing this project. I have really enjoyed doing it but it hasn't been easy and I have in a way treated it as a type of diary that I will be able to look back on in a few years and say I really did that and do a bit of reminiscing.

I have been doing lots of calendars again the last month and still on with new orders now. I have also started doing Canvas Wraps and had the 1st one delivered today its 1500 x 1000mm its really impressive. I have also been thinking about what I will do at the end of the year, I will still be doing something next year but not sure what, maybe photo of the week or something but I will keep you informed.


Day 365 of my 365 Project
Hartlepool Headland.
Well i'm finished 731 photos later the last day of my two year back to back 366-365 projects. It's been a big struggle at times but I have really enjoyed doing it, I never tire of where we live and I don't think people really appreciate what we have on our doorstep.
So im signing off for now but I will be doing something else, I cannot thank all my followers of the project for the likes, loves, wow's and comments. All the best from me and grange photography for 2018... watch out for my next project later in January 2018.
