My 2017 in 365 seconds. 2018.2.

My 2017 in 365 seconds. 2018.2.

Those who know me well – on-line and off – know that making memories via photography is something I LOVE to do!

Last year, 2017, was 365 days filled with emotions, memories, experiences, challenges, love, sadness, creativity in between boredom, activity and fun. Does that sound like your year too?

I always have my iphone close by for memory-making and connecting too. So, when I came upon an app called 1SecondEveryDay I was “IN”.

So, the end product here is over 5 minutes long and whilst I loved looking back you may not and that’s OK. I couldn’t load it fully onto my facebook page of instagram so a friend suggested here.

I made it into a Youtube clip and here it is. No musical accompaniment here. Some sounds were captured: for one second!

Mostly visuals.

Happy Viewing!


Happy 2018 to my friend and blogger Leanne here sharing her Lovin’ Life Linky.



  1. How cool is this?

    • It is awesome. I have really enjoyed taking a still or mini movie each day that gets added to the app. A bit like your sentences a day! Denyse x

  2. What a great idea! You are very good to capture 1 second every day and wait until the end of the year to reveal a year’s worth. What a great keepsake to look back on a year. Happy New Year Denyse! ๐Ÿ™‚ #TeamLovinLife

    • Thank you. It is a fun app. I actually publish each month on Instagram as a month’s worth is acceptable to both IG and Facebook. It was the length of this one that got me thinking about how to show it and a friend suggested here. For me, it was the easiest to make it a Youtube movie.

      I think you’d like this app as you always have your eye on things to snap. Called 1 Second Every Day or 1Esd. It’s a paid one.

  3. They’re lovely Denyse and I really like how you’ve combined moving and still images. It’s all quite mesmerizing and a great way to look back on the year.

    • Thank you, Leanne. I have watched it a few times (that is how I see where I have repeated myself) but I recall how things were for me for almost EVERY single shot, so it’s captured memories for me in a cool way.

      I have continued into this year and the app has upgraded to allow 2 images or mini vids a day which they make as 2 seconds. I will be interested to see what will happen at the end of January when I want to share my first one in 2018.

  4. What a great idea, Denyse! I love how you’ve included your mandalas.

    • Thank you! Itโ€™s been fun doing it. And I M continuing into this year. The updated app lets you select 2 pics or vids on one day. So I shall see how I decide to put together January when it finishes. D x

  5. This is so fantastic. What a great way to commemorate your year. I usually take a photo every day too, as I almost see something beautiful on my morning walks. I’m a bit of a photo nut! #TeamLovinLife

    • Thanks so much Kathy! I love your morning walk pictures. I have tried to go to the beach without my iPhone and the one day I did there were kite surfers! Wonโ€™t do that again! D x

  6. What a great idea. And I love the sentence idea as well.

    A friend actually gave me a 5yr diary that asks a question each day – something different (what am I reading, where did I last eat out etc) and IF I remember to do it every day it will be interesting to look back on next year and the year after etc….


    • Thanks Deb! I think a prompt or question is a great starter idea. I decided to give the one sentence thing a go last night and found I have an app that I hadnt used and it’s going in there, along with one picture. I have started a few NEW things this new year and I am hopeful of continuing them but also know that does not always happen and that is OK.

      PS On the looking back thing: I have been writing in a journal as part of an app for the past almost 2 years and let me tell you it IS the ultimate in telling me the truth of what things used to be like rather than trust my memory. It has been very beneficial for me in the past year especially as I KNOW from evidence there I am doing much better now.

  7. Happy New Year my friend and WELL DONE on your photo video!! What a great idea. I absolutely love it. I also love seeing the dates tick over with each frame. Such an amazing summary. xoxo

    • Thank you! I am so glad I did share it actually. I wasn’t going to and it is cool how many people have enjoyed it. Including me!! Happy New Year. D xx

  8. Happy New Year to you Denyse! I love your dedication to photography – it’s an obsession we share ๐Ÿ™‚ x #TeamLovinLife
