365 Ideas

This project grew out of the 365 Before Thirty project. I was looking for ideas to keep the project and it occurred to me that there are lot of people out there looking to do a photo-a-day project in need of ideas. So the request went out for ideas. Lifehacker AU also kindly posted my request resulting in more ideas. As they come in more will be added here.
