10 photographers, 10 photos each: the 1010 project…
Posted in photographers, pia's photos October 18th, 2010 by pia

On October 10, 2010, I took ten photos…

“10 photographers. 10 photos each. All taken on 10/10/10. A single day represented in 100 photographs. No special occasion, no big event, just the essence of daily life captured through ten lenses.”

I was one of the ten asked to participate in this special online exhibition created by victoria. So on Sunday October 10, 2010, my camera was with me all day. At around 6pm I went for a walk  – the same walk I do most days, through a park toward the river amstel. But on this particular day, at this particular hour there just happened to be the most glorious ray of sunshine beaming through the very part  of the park that I always walk through. Upon entering, I found a swarm of tiny flies that looked like specks of dancing light. I couldn’t help but spend time with them –  capturing them catching light.

I had all intention of sharing a selection of 10 photos taken throughout the day, but once this moment arrived, I knew it was how I wanted to document the day – I believe every day has at least one moment that brings joy, and for me, this moment, as simple as it was, was that moment.

    I believe that too – I call it the ‘grace moment’ – if you are looking, one comes by at least once a day to remind you of how the very simple is beautiful… this morning it was my nephews playing in the early morning light in my sister’s country garden. If only I could photograph it like you Pia! K

    Great idea and great shot. Love how the sun is filtering through the trees and I’m wondering where that cute little pathway will lead to… Wish I could follow it. Pruxxx
