THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
‘I’ve been taking a photo every day at 12.34pm for 10 years’
This item caught my eye because I love this type of project and would love to do it.
2012 was when we had our first two grandchildren. It would have been great to do a photo of them every day for 10 years. But we are close to that, I certainly have one a week (even more than that) for the last 10 years.
If you took one photo a day that is 3,651 photographs.
Anyway on with the story:
When Samuel Ryde got his first smartphone in 2012, he began a project to photograph whatever he was up to at 12.34pm every day.
Initially he planned to complete the project over one year, but afterwards decided to keep on snapping.
More than 10 years later, the 40-year-old artist and hairdresser from Tower Hamlets, east London, says he has documented both the “exciting and mundane” nature of everyday London life.
Despite occasionally “life getting in the way”, Mr Ryde says he rarely misses the moment and wants to continue the project for the rest of his life.
