Project 365: Travel Edition

Happy New Year!

Today I am launching a new blog project called P365 TE.

The goal is simple.
I aim to post 1 Picture a day - since I have been dabbling in point and shoot (automatic setting) photography, admittedly limited or aided by auto no flash, and combining this with my love of travel, and a regret that I didn't want to jump on the blogging bandwagon sooner.
Its funny that this idea was born in 60 west hotel in HK While I was doing what I love most, travelling (esting snd shopping). I remember sleeping at 3am, but waking up at 8am because I dreamt of this and I wanted to type it up so I won't forget.

My vision for P365 TE is for my picture of the day to come with a bite size travel tip.
As an extra challenge, I will give myself points:
1 point for 1 post a day
1 point for creativity (only 1 P365 TE post on 1 place - so I can post 20 pics on India , but only 1 on the Taj Mahal) - multiple posts on a place (ie Taj Mahal) are allowed if there are different travel tips, but no points will be given after the first post on a specific place
1 point for getting an audience reaction (either through comments, facebook, twitter or instagram) - only 1 point will be given even if there are multiple reactions.
So maximum points per day is 3.
I guess I need to post a running tally of my points every day so I don't lose track.

This project will include all photos I've taken that I can still find in my files, and will not be limited in to just new photos. So I will just note if my info is from stock knowledge and needs further verification.

I would call the project a success if I manage to get 700 points and I will be very happy to get 1000 points. Happy enough to think about how to ho about writing a book, which is one of the things on my bucket list. Right up there with owning a beach house, and living in Paris (again!). Just saying.

So here goes...
