Personally, I'm not much of a photographer. I rarely carry a camera around, and when I do, it's even rarer that I make use of it. Maybe that's why I love blog posts that feature pictures from people's daily lives, and why I love house tours so much: it's the chance to sneak a peek into someone else's world. So when I came across 1010 project participants on not just one, but multiple blogs that I follow, I knew that it was going to be something I would love and want to share with all of you. Boy was I right...

As the site explains:
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.
The 1010 project was devised as an antidote to everything in modern life always having to be bigger, better, louder and brighter than what’s been before.
It’s an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the simple, everyday things that make life beautiful.
Isn't that a lovely sentiment? You can check out all 10 of each photographer's images at the 1010 project.
