90 in 2010 Review and the New List

Well ~ this is it.

The year is over and the 90 in 2010 list is officially closed.

I began the list after being inspired by Phoenix, AZ based photographer, Melissa Jill and have inspired another fellow photographer (Emily Hoskins) to start her own and inspire others to do the same.

Initially, I didn’t think coming up with a list of things to do would be that hard but after the 30th item, I had to put it away and consider it a bit more. It took me a number of days to come up with 90 things. And I made the list with the intent to do as many of them during our year in Vancouver as possible. I realized that it would be challenging with a new baby and I didn’t get to as many of them as I would have liked and quite a few of them also became irrelevant or changed in scope. I didn’t really know how to deal with the changes, so I adjusted a few or deleted them altogether.

To see the 90 in 2010 on the old blog, you can go here.

All in all, I only completed half of the list and you’ll see some repeats on the new one just because I like ‘em and would still like to do them. In actuality, I accomplished more of them but didn’t have a camera with me at the time so I didn’t think it was fair to cross them off the list.

For the new list, I decided not to get fancy with the numbers, to keep it simple and to do a proper 101 in 1001 list. That means instead of focusing on one year, the scope will be for 1001 days or 2.75 years. So after much consideration, here is the new list and some pertinent dates.
