52 weeks; a photo a week (1-10)

Inspired by the ladies of the blog The door in the wall I ‘secretly’ joined in  their 52 project. A year long, a photo a week, of each child. Like those ladies I’m mad about photo’s. I think life with children goes way too fast and documenting my boys while practising my photography skills seems like a great combination. The photos might not be perfect, but I’m proud anyway; I took them. With love. Of my boys. And you know what? I see a slight progress every couple of weeks. That makes nice too.

The previous year (2014) I also attempted, inspired by Gray Benko and the #theclickproject. Then life kicked in and I didn’t come further than week 13. But now  I’m truly determined to finish the year. And who knows after that. Maybe another year?

I’ve always loved images. In all its forms (photos, mental photos, graphics, illustrations and just everything my eyes see) and for some reason I always come back to grabbing my camera and take photos.

Below you’ll find week 1 to 10. The rest I will post later in different posts. Knowing myself I will most probably not post the future ones every week, but more likely every couple of weeks.

Well, let’s go and I would love to hear what you think.
