52 weeks project for 2013

Who is interested in doing a 52 weeks project for 2013. This will give a much break instead of the usual 365 day project.

If you are interested post up a theme you would like to cover for next year. I will put it together and will ask Gigi or Stephanie to sticky it and every week we'll start a post.

Lurkers are free to join. The more the merrier and it doesn't have to be the best picture, it could be a snap, etc.

Thanks for starting this thread, El! I'm looking forward to another weekly project. The last 52 week that I did, I didn't stick to a theme. I'm ready to challenge myself this time!

A few themes I think would be nice:
Silhouette
Food
Self portrait
Macro
Texture
Black and white

I would like to do it again. I did it in 2011. I felt like I was able to get more of my kids. This year, I feel like I didn't capture my kids as much as I did clients. I would really like to do this! I will be thinking on a theme.

Didn't go over the entire list but I'd like to try a themed 52 week thing.

A couple of ideas

Do some holiday themes around certain times of year like
Holiday Cheer (Christmas, Hanukkah, etc)
Easter (Spring)
Summer Celebrations (Canada Day/4th of July)

Self Portraits
Portraits
Landscape/nature
City
Festivals

I did a P52 back in 2011 like Sadie, but didn't have a theme. I'd love to participate and will happily sticky the weekly threads!

Best,
GiGi

I'd like to give it a try! No time like the present to get my feet into this hobby more and start learning- if you're up for another.

El, I was thinking that maybe it would be nice to have the link to the theme's thread in the main list. It might be nice to have an easy way to go back and look at all of the themes, instead of searching the forum for it. So maybe just link it in the master list?
