365 Photos – 9th May 2011 to 8th May 2012 (and beyond)
On the 9th May 2011 I decided to start a 365 project – that is taking a photograph every day for a year. On the 8th May 2012 I finished my first year, and thought – “why stop now?”. You can read more about how and why my project started in my post on 10 May 2011 – “365”. During my first 365, I posted all my photos to 365project.org, which is an amazing site, and I highly recommend you have a look, and sign up (it’s free!) if you are considering doing a 365 project.
In October 2013, after nearly two and a half years, I realised that maintaining a photo every day is starting to feel more like work than fun, and taking up time I needed to spend on other things. I am still posting photos regularly, just not every day, and if I take more than one photo a day I spread these out across several dates. I think that it retains a loose philosophical link to the original project though! Anyway, you can read a bit more about this decision here in more post on 3 October 2013 – “365 – The end”.
My photos are all posted to photo.eutony.net/365 (this link also appears on the left sidebar, as “365 Photos”). The most recent photo is always shown on the eutony.net homepage, and the latest 10 are always shown below (with click-throughs for larger versions).
20th May 2022 - "Yellow"
15th May 2022 - "Birthday"
9th May 2022
7th May 2022 - "CEng"
My latest addition (only arrived this morning).
Turns out that there is a tie which commemerations being a Chartered Engineer, and this is what it looks like!
6th May 2022 - "Durham"
My ordination training at St Hild college culminated in a BA which was technically awareded by Durham.
I also think this tie is really smart, and I have worn it in anger.
5th May 2022 - "Leeds"
I did my docorate at the University of Leeds.
Having a PhD does allow you to wear an academic hood, but at more than £100 to buy one, I thought the tie was not only a more economic option, but one I might actually wear.
4th July 2022 - "ICU Social Colours"
I am most proud of this tie, and I needed to prove my eligibility to buy it!
While I was at Imperial, I was the radio Station Manager for a year, and in recognition of nearly failing my degree that year I was awarded Social Colours by the student's union.
3rd July 2022 - "Imperial College"
My first degree was from Imperial College, and this is the college tie.
This is possibly my favourite tie, and one I have worn as a tie on various occasions.
2nd May 2022 - "House Half Colours"
My school had a house system (a bit like Hogwarts), and awards were giving to those who contributed to the life of the House or School (representing in sporting events, mainly). These were called "colours", and translated into a special tie you could wear!
I was pretty rubbish at sport, but I did something or other to merit being awarded half-colours.
1st May 2022 - "School Tie"
Slightly unintentionally I have built up a collection of "meaningful" ties, principally from my almae matres. I didn't really set out to do it, but now I started I keep looking for opportunities to get a tie which represents something.
So the next few photos are all ties from my life.
Kicking off with my old school tie.
