Hi, My name is Claudia Mundlos. Sanford365 started as a project of taking 365 pictures of my life in Sanford, FL – and I am proud to say, I made it! Throughout this year of photo taking (September 2008 through September 2009) I fell in love with my city and discovered all the great things about living in Sanford. (See original description of the challenge below).
The Sanford365 Project is now reaching its next level: providing useful information about the events, restaurants/bars, things to do and local businesses of Sanford and Lake Mary and connecting its residents through an active community on facebook.
If you are a business owner you can get listed here for free to promote your business or events.
Beyond the Sanford365 Flickr Group where Sanford fans share their visions/pictures of Sanford there will be “mini photo challenges” with great prizes for blog readers starting in September 2011.

ORIGINAL PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
365 days, 365 photos – Impressions of life in Sanford, Florida.
This project was inspired by another 365 challenge that I came across. Check it out, it’s really interesting and you might get inspired, too ;o)
So here’s basically what I will do:
- Take a picture a day
- Post pictures at least 3 times a week
- Each picture will have its own blog entry (so on some days there might be several new pictures and blog entries, but be assured they are all taken on different days
- The pictures will mainly show scenes, objects and people in Sanford, Florida, but on some days I might be on an excursion to other areas in Central Florida, Florida, or the World ;o) Can’t promise anything but the next year might take me to Colombia, Panama, Germany, Italy and France. I might compare these places to Sanford though to keep the images in context.
- Pictures will be taken either with my beloved Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (but please remember, I am only a beginner, and despite my background in Graphic Design and a photography class I took at Crealde, I am still learning and improving every day), my Casio Exilim (shoots wide angle and also Videos, so watch out for those extras), and my iphone (what did we all do before there were iphones? I can’t even tell…thanks to Apple’s miraculous technology, I will be able to post to this blog live from the road…as real estate agent I am out and about a lot so this comes in very handy).
So let’s take on this year, starting on September 18, 2008, and ending it on September 17, 2009.
Hope you enjoy my pics and feel free to post comments anytime!

Day 184 (March 20)
So it is officially halftime! Wow, what an experience! I have to say this project is getting tougher all the time because the project has grwon from just taking a picture of anything in my life to actually providing useful information about the area and local businesses. That is the harder part. Taking a picture a day has almost become a habit for me by now. If at times my posts are not as informative as on other days, I hope you can all forgive me, it is merely out of a lack of time. That is also why you might not see me posting every day but rather once a week.
Nevertheless, I am still on with my challenge and I can already say that this blog will exist way beyond the originally planned 365 Days. I have re-discovered my passion for writing and hope to improve my skills every day!Pin It
