As the new year approaches here it goes an idea for you all … take a picture of your land/home/city at day break of the New Years day, January 1st, 2007. This idea came to me when I recalled a beautiful book published to celebrate the begging of the 21st century: Daybreak 2000. Why not doing this every year at New Years Day? It could be a nice personal project, a nice memory of our life.
Daybreak 2000 Project: As millions of people throughout the world woke up on the morning of January 1st, 2000, more than 100 internationally-acclaimed nature photographers captured the natural beauty of the new day on film for a special once-in-a-lifetime book, Daybreak 2000. On a day when the worlds attention was focused on technology and whether computers are working, Daybreak 2000 photographers will focus on the timeless wonder of nature deserts, forests, mountains, oceans, plants and wildlife. In the tradition of the Day in a Life series and Jim Brandenburgs Chased By the Light, Daybreak 2000 offers nature and book lovers a collection of photos from over 100 of the worlds premier outdoor photographers all taken on New Years Day, 2000. In addition to the captivating photographs, each photographer will provide a thoughtful caption about the photo, the location, and his or her impressions, reflections and emotions at that moment. Photos from all corners of the world will make Daybreak 2000 a treasured gift for photo enthusiasts, nature lovers and anyone interested in sharing in this special moment in history.-Daybreak 2000
