January - Photo a day

So it has begun. A great way to start the year and my 2013 project. I started this project with the aim of capturing my bit of Glasgow during 2013 in a casual way.
It ended up become a bit of a stress. A kind of every day deadline and need to get "the shot". Attach onto that some sort of need to receive approval from "online",
attempting to grasp if this is tourist photography and welcome to the first project.

This project is a glimpse at my Glasgow in the first month of January. This project made me change the way I photographed.
I started to change my behavior, the things I looked at, the way I commuted and even my sleeping pattern in an attempt to depict my gaze.
It is a weird one and really got me thinking if this was street photography looking at general life or was I a tourist giving a day by day depiction of a tourists Glasgow.
I attempted to touch on this looking at the work of Parr and the thoughts of Urry but I decided to sum this up with the below paragraph.
For me it is merely a collection of 31 photos that has begun my 2013 project. The theory behind it is one of contract diction.
That forcing yourself to take photographs in a regimented day by day fashion has spurred on my creativity rather than crush it.

I shall end on a quote from Susan Sontag's On Photography which seems to sum up how I have spent the past month.

"I'm always mentally photographing everything as practice" Minor White
