Wandering Camera is an idea that came to me quite suddenly and I thought it would be a great way to involve all of you. As you already know, I love seeing the world through my camera lens. I really enjoy taking photos of foreign lands, old cities, civilizations and ruins. Nature also provides me with endless opportunities – light reflecting off mountains, wild flowers at the foothills, the night sky, flowing waterfalls, the stillness of a forest, just to name a few.

I also take just as many photos of everyday life. It is a rare day when I haven’t taken at least one photo, suspending a moment of life. This year I decided to continue on that note and officially take one photo per day for 365 days. It is based on an idea that has been circulating for a few years now.
Old Warehouses Of Bergen, Norway, September 2013
This year, most of my photos are going be about journalling everyday life. I am letting my camera wander and direct the photos I take. I am often surprised by how much more I see this way. I am hoping to be creative in taking photos around my house and also looking to learn more about the area where I live.

You also already take photos and share them on your blog posts. They range from your creative projects, vacation photos, family visits, walks in your neighbourhood and your daily musings. I love seeing those photos and reading about them.

Past Links With Photography Tips
I invite you to join me by linking up to the Wandering Camera event. You don’t have to take a photo per day like me, but you can use the link-up excuse to push yourself past your comfort zone. You can be creative with the settings, use low light to your advantage and reacquaint yourself with your camera.
Here is a little badge for you to share on your page. Please invite others to participate.
The first linky party will open on February 4th. If you follow me via email, bloglovin or facebook, you will get a reminder. I really hope to see you there!
Let’s get creative!

I found my way here from September Violets. We love to get out as much as we can and we are always taking photos. I’ll try to join you for Wandering Camera this week. Lovely idea.

Great idea: count me in. It will be good to take photos of more than quilts.

Oh yes please! Some months I take loads of photos and others hardly any. This will really get me thinking about my photography again and getting out and about to take the photos.
Dixie January 27, 2016 at 21:22

I’m lookiing forward to the tips. I can use all the help I can get.

I want to improve my camera skills as well. So we’ll see how it goes.
Wendy January 25, 2016 at 12:14
Well I applaud you on the photo a day challenge! I know I would not keep that up past a week or so ;) I will try to join up with your link party though, as it will get me and my camera out for “a walk” which we need to do more often! Love the photo of the tall cedars above the waterfall.
Cynthia January 22, 2016 at 11:24
This sounds like fun. I want to improve my camera skills. Count me in. I have the perfect chance to snap a few pictures as we are away for a couple of days. Camera is already packed.

Look forward to this Soma, thanks for sharing :) Your pics always make me want to climb into the shot!
Kim Sharman January 22, 2016 at 03:11
Wonderful idea, Soma. Tutorials on photography skills would be so helpful. The photo of the John Muir Trail is stunning!
Lara B. January 21, 2016 at 15:11
Oh Soma, this is brilliant! I love your idea and look forward to your posts and linkies! A great way for us to develop our photography skills! Added your great looking button to my sidebar and will chat it up the next time I post. It’s also good that you will be reminding us via email… the monthly events tend to sneak up on me.

A picture a day is a great idea. My photography skills need help and this will be a good way to learn and improve.
rosa January 21, 2016 at 13:23
Great idea.I like to take picture to the cloudsand my favorite time is in the morning.
Janine January 21, 2016 at 12:17
This is a great idea. My camera wandered to Shri Lanka with two of sons and since it came back we haven’t been able to switch it on/charge it :( Hopefully I can get it fixed without huge expense…in the meantime I’m learning take photos on my phone and I’ll look forward to linking up and seeing everyone else’s pictures :)
Patty January 21, 2016 at 11:35
I think this is a great idea. I’ve been thinking of doing something similar. Perhaps this will serve as the motivation!

Interesting. I often take my quilts out in the beautiful nature at the west coast of Norway. So my posts will be both quilts and nature. I don’t know if that will be ok.
Ruth January 21, 2016 at 09:19
I love this idea – count me in!
