Counting down: High Noon

For this year's Daily Art Project I have set my alarm clock for 12 o'clock every day. I am going to take a picture at that time. It could be of anything - whereever I am, whatever I am doing, whoever I am on that day...? We'll see what comes in front of my lens.
After deciding on this new theme, I have practised a bit during the last few days of the year. Taking a picture at noon, to get into the habit. Here's the selection of counting down:

Ideally, the picture should be taken exactly at noon, when the alarm clock is ringing, or when some of the ever-present church bells are reminding me of the fact that it is time. But should I have taken a what I consider much nicer picture in the ten minutes before or after, that one may qualify as well. As in this case: the first picture was taken five minutes before noon, the second one exactly when the alarm clock was ringing. I would probably pick the first one to represent this date:

If nothing much was happening, I may have to live with a dull and boring picture for the day. (Though it may not be included in the selection published on the blog.)

If I happen to have taken several good photos just at noon, I have to choose between them. The following one was chosen out of three to represent the day:

Should I for some reason not hear the bells ringing and have not taken a picture within that twenty-minute period, that's too bad. No picture for that day.


  1. Great idea and such a good exercise. I don't think that I would have the discipline to do it, but I like the thought of it. Happy New Year, Uta!

  2. what a nice idea!! can't wait to see what you come up with. the practice pictures are good
