the hours

You’ve probably heard about 365projects, where you take a picture a day for a year. I’ve done it twice now, and I’m taking a break, although I do miss it a little. If that seems a little daunting, here’s another idea for photo inspiration: thehours.

This website is a collective project in which a group of photographers, who met on Flickr, each post a single image every month, taken during a particular hour of the day. We’re starting in January 2014 with 7am (so images posted that month will be taken between 7am and 8am) and then moving through the day by an hour each month.

There’s no need to publish your photos, although there is a Flickr group associated with thehours website if you want to join in.

Super-Secret Spy Lens

After tonight’s viewing of the Street Photography assignment, I showed you my right-angle mirror lens. This can be very useful for candid street shots. I got it from an entertaining US website called PhotoJojo which sells lots of oddball camera related stuff.

Anyway, here it is:

The Spy Lens is available at the Photojojo Store.
