I'm not very active on DPC these days (there's an understatement) but I am always here looking at challenges and lurking. I have even stopped doing side challenges because I always end up falling out midway through -- I just don't take pictures every day anymore.

However, I found a good idea on photojojo.com (which I love, by the way): a yearlong project wherein I take photo each week of something for which I am grateful. I started the project Thanksgiving weekend and hope to continue it through to next Thanksgiving week. It occurred to me today that it would make an interesting "side challenge" here. The best times I spent at DPC when I was more active here were when I was doing side challenges.

I just thought I'd put this out here and see if anyone wanted to do it along with me. It's not a burdensome time commitment, and there are no hard and fast rules, although a mental commitment to a photo a week would be ideal and isn't too difficult. If nobody else is interested, I'm not going to post my pictures to a silent thread, but I'll put them in a flickr set here.

I think it's a great idea! I sign up for side challenges all the time and flake out on many of them as well. Still shouldn't be discouraged from signing up - you never know what/when you might get motivated or inspired. So, sign me up starting in January.

ps: glad to see you back, Rachel.

I've thought about doing this for some time but haven't got to it yet, now that I've dusted the dust of my camera I want something to inspire me to use it more, this is perfect! Sign me up to start in January please.

This is a really good idea. I've been deeply inactive as well, and am just trying to get myself back in gear as well. I'd be up for this, bout could we start on the new year, just to have it nice and even?

Starting in the new year will be fine! :) I started Thanksgiving weekend because that's when I got the idea and that way I'll have a slideshow of images to look at next Thanksgiving. I'll make the images thread in time for January 1st, then. Wow. We're only about three weeks from the new year at this point, aren't we? How did this happen? :)

The third week of every month was served concurrently with the fourth - I think that was it.
I would like to sign up for this side challenge to. It never hurts to seek out what we appreciate in our lives.

Bump, as the new year is almost here. Is anyone still interested? :) I'll make up a list, and stuff.

I'm in, I'm looking forward to it.

Everyone is out of town or hiding from the New Year's revelers...

I'm in.

I invite you guys to incorporate this in the 2011 photograph a week side challenge. Your self assigned theme would be gratitude.

Here is the link: 2011 PAW

How do the rest of you feel about this? It's fine with me.

I think you will get more comments and feedback, etc. Essentially the same concept.

That works for me, I'll see you over there then.
