Here’s an exercise in accountability: Blogging your yearlong project, which is exactly how I’ve decided to approach the Project 365 photography challenge this year. I don’t know if there’s ever been a year when I completed the project from beginning to end, but since I want to start working on my photography skills again, I’ve decided to make another attempt.
It’s been years since I made a real effort with my photography; it’s something I loved senior year of high school, and I spent a couple of years working on it, but midway through college and on, it fell to the wayside while I dealt with the rest of life. Even when I bought my dSLR, I didn’t pick it up nearly as often as I’d like to have. It was an occasional thing, not a daily practice, and it honestly makes me a little sad to think about it. (I’m often crying over time lost.) But it’s an art I love, and it’s an art I think I have a skill for, so I’d like to keep exercising it and getting better.
I’ll be aiming to share my photos every Wednesday; I considered doing just a monthly roundup, but I know I hate photo heavy posts (they take so damn long to load), so a weekly update seems like a better option. This week’s collection is small since the year only started on Sunday, but I think it’s a nice way to begin, easing into it.
