Week 18 down, 34 to go!
Week 18 folks! One-third of the 365 project has gone by, and now we’re slowly creeping up on summer! I’m sure many of you have attended some graduations and Mother’s Day brunches so far, and many are probably looking forward to Memorial Day weekend as well as Father’s Day.
This project has definitely taught me a lot about my photography as well as made me focus on what I want to accomplish this year. Because my 365 project makes me account for my days by putting something in physical form, that makes me also more accountable to myself for the other goals I set for myself for 2012. On the photo book front, I have lots of projects in the works. My pregnancy photo book is not quite finished yet, but it’s almost there. It was held up by my discovery that I lost my underwater camera. We had taken a “babymoon” to Sanibel Island last March and that was the last time I recall seeing it. I knew I had several photos on that memory card that I would want to be in the book and it was irking me that I couldn’t find it. Just last week I was so happy to have found that darn underwater camera! Of course I had told my husband I had gone through every box we’d packed during our move last year (and not unpacked yet b/t/w!) but one day while looking for something else (of course), I found it. Yea!!! So that project is pretty much back on track. I’m also working on an Instagram project with Blurb and a graduation book – more on those later!
For week 18 I again focused on food. At one of the restaurants where I shot some photos, we were seated by a huge window with such beautiful light. Good lighting and good food – what more could you ask for? Yum!
I’m wondering how you are all doing on your 365 projects? I’d love to hear a roll call to hear how your project is going and if you think you might do one again next year. If you aren’t doing one this year, but are thinking of doing one next year, let me know too. If there’s enough interest, I’m thinking of helping us all along by doing a semi-guided 365 project where I will come up with a list of suggestions. I know that sometimes I need some inspiration so maybe we can help each other out. Let me know what you think!
