I’ve written a bit of an article looking back on my experience of doing a 365 challenge which you can read on my new blog.
It also contains a few of my favourite shots from my year-long project.
Hope you like it…

I just started a new portraiture project called The Finsbury Fifty.
I’ll be taking fifty portraits of fifty people, all on a 50mm lens, all in Finsbury Park in North London.
You can check out The Finsbury Fifty project here: thefinsburyfifty.tumblr.com/
Here’s a little taste of what you’ll find over there: this is shot #1, a guy called Mohammad, collecting for children’s charities in a rocking outfit in Finsbury Park tube station…Follow @RobJBC
Just a quick one to, first of all, say a huge thank you to all the likers, commenters and followers of my 365 challenge blog – this has been an incredible life-enriching learning experience for me and I want to express my gratitude to those who joined me on the journey and have offered kind words and amazing support.
I now have a new blog (still keeping it WordPress!!) over at robcartwrightphotoblog.wordpress.com – please feel free to head over and have a look!
And so, the final day of my year-long photoaday challenge arrived.
As is often the case with things like this, in some ways it feels like an age ago when I put up my first post, in others seems a lot less than 366 days*.
I be writing a bit more on my reflections on a year of shooting day-in, day-out in due course. In short though, it’s an amazing thing to do and I’d recommend it to anyone as a great way to build your photographic skills, knowledge and ‘eye’.
This is a view from the roof garden bar in Dalston as me and my girlfriend enjoyed a pint in the sun.
*I had a few technical issues along the way, hence me starting on 3 July 2011 and finishing on 24 July 2012.

Hackney was absolutely buzzing in anticipation of the Olympic Torch Relay passing through the borough ahead of the kick off of the games the following weekend.
We got into the spirit of things with a (very narrow staircase) climb to the top of St Augustine’s Tower, not far from where we’ve been staying on Mare Street to take in the stunning 360° views.
We then headed to the Shoreditch Festival by the canal to soak up some world music, drink some beer and devour some awesome pizza slices from a very cool little food truck with a stone pizza oven in it.
Finally, we headed to Rectory Road to watch my Uni mate Jonty carrying the Olympic torch. He was brilliant and the atmosphere was utterly fantastic.
All in all, a great day….
