Nice, I especially like the first one, and the way you've captured Limmatplatz.

Don't do it. IMO 365s are the fastest way to get disillusioned with photography - after a couple of weeks/months it starts becoming a chore, especially when you've got no ideas but are forcing yourself out with the camera anyway.

52s are better in that they give you a bit of time and breathing space to think about what you want to do next.

As for me, I just grab the camera when I've got the ideas and the urge.

Very true and I noticed that yesterday when walking through ShopVille desperately trying to find "topics" that I could use. The real reason for my 365 was exercise as I work from home and do not do any kind of physical activity at all - a 365 would be a way of forcing me to get some fresh air to get away from work but that kind of backfired

If time allows I might start another project with weekly updates - like 52 different brunches in Zurich

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

This was a rather nice idea from more than 30 years ago, which spawned a number of similar projects around the world. Kind of the opposite of a 365, but unfortunately not something an individual can do -- unless they have unlimited financial resources and an unbelievably fast means of transport.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

My family has really enjoyed exploring Switzerland and all of it's beautiful things to photograph. Here are some of my faves:



Matterhorn.



Vineyards near Vevey in the fall.

Sunflower field near Lausanne.

The monastery rose garden in Rapperswil in full bloom and a stunning rainbow over it. Pity I just had a phone camera.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Finally got round to finding a graffiti spot I'd spotted from afar a few times, on a riverside wall, just behind the steel works and industrial estate. Looks like they turned it over to local artists who keep adding new work.











[Rest of the set here]

There's at least one other spot here in Emmenbruecke where it's allowed, under the motorway bridge, it regularly gets new pieces, I really like them.
