Wow. This is really weird not having a title at the top of my post with the day of the year and the date. HA! Or with a photograph!
I have officially gone two full days without taking any kind of photograph with my camera and editing it. That’s the first time in a year. It feels rather foreign, to be quite honest. However, I’m glad to not have the self-induced pressure looming over me to take a photograph and post to this blog. Yes, my friends, my 365 photo a day project is complete.
I have learned a lot over the past year about myself, my writing and my photography. Simply, I’d like to think that I’ve grown. To me, that alone is reward enough for the effort and hard work. The comments and feedback I have received over the year have helped in ways that I can’t even express. Simple words of encouragement kept me going at some of the most difficult times for me. Some of those times were very sad. I tried not to convey that, but sometimes it came out in my writing. Other times were incredibly exciting and adventurous or just down right funny. The opportunity to share those times with everyone through my photographs and brief commentary was wonderful. I don’t think of myself as an exceptional writer, I simply write what I’m thinking most times. I hope that little look into my thoughts helped broaden your view of the photographs and at times, helped you to take another (different) look at certain things.
Thank you, again, to each and every one of you for your support!
I am the type of person that needs challenges and goals. I set goals and have a strong sense of accomplishment when I achieve them. I push through the challenge and do whatever I can do hit that goal. Thus, I need a new project with a new goal! Yes, folks, this is fun! Ha! I’ve decided that my new challenge this year will be to work my way through the alphabet. What does that mean? There are 26 letters in the English alphabet and 52 weeks in the year and I will post, at a minimum, bi-weekly. I would like to work my way through the alphabet, starting with the letter A, and share photographs. Those photographs may have objects that begin with that letter or they may spark emotion that begin with that letter. For example, A could have photographs with an apple, an ape or might even demonstrate anger or agility. These will be new photographs that I’ve captured as well as previous work I’ve done.
With all that said, I’m sure that I will also share special photo walks, travels and projects with you too. I am grateful for everyone’s critique! Stay tuned!
Happy New Year! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed 2012!
