Krakow, Poland 2013

A year in a Mathematician’s life - 2015: one photo taken every day.

This Project 365 is intended to collect one photo each day during the year 2015, reflecting what I believe is an interesting, although possibly un-noticeable, situation - and also sometimes tiny things I hear, read or learn.
If you’d like any of the photos in better resolution, email me at, and I’ll be happy to send them for non-commercial use. 

My rules are: the photo has to be taken on that day, and by me.

Here is my Project 365 for 2014.
