The start of the new year is full of hope, new opportunities, new chances to get it "right" and the start of...well new things. MyLove and a few of my very talented friends are participating in Project 365. The premise is that you take a photo a day. I love this idea. I've thought about doing this come January 1 for a few years now. The problem is I'm usually recuperating on January 1st. You know, from the night before.
You can jump in and start any time during the year. While this is a nice idea it fucks with my perfectionist mentality. If I just jumped in, I would have missed X many days and I would have failed. I know this isn't true but damn that negative self talk.
I can barely remember to take my blood pressure medicine. The pressure to take a picture a day is overwhelming. Instead I'm going to rock Project 52. I don't even know if Project 52 is a real thing but if not, let's just say I started it. I will take a photo each week and share it here. I'll also post the photo on my Flickr account.
Hopefully by the end of the year my photo's will show improvement. My hope is that this will be a lot of fun and I'll end up taking more than 52 photo's. Or not. If I can just have fun with this assignment and not freak out, I'll consider it a win.
Enjoy my Week 1 and Week 2 photo's. Are you participating in Project 365 or Project 52? Leave a comment and let me know! I'd love to check out your photo's.
