Hey friends, remember when I said I was going to shoot a photo every day this year? Well… I’m doing it! I was so very excited to get started in December, and then it quickly turned into being less about photography and more of a documentary project, which is cool (and shouldn’t surprise me, because that’s kind of how I shoot). January started strong and carried me into February. Then, mid-month, it turned into a – Oh shit, I forgot to take today’s photo, and now it’s dark outside and my dinner is not all that attractive, so I guess I’ll wait until the cats do something cute.
Matt finally called me out on it, and my waning enthusiasm for this project made me realize that I needed to get out of this creative rut I was in and finally make major change in my life: you see, every day when I was at work, I desperately wanted to be home working on my own photography projects. And a full-time job consumes a lot of time. So, as you can imagine, I was getting progressively more miserable. Which is too bad for everyone involved. (I’d like to point out that there is nothing wrong with my job, I’ve just worked at the same place for nine years. Nine Years.)
Anyway, change is upon us… More on that soon.
Damn, that was deep! This is only the first quarter of the year, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings. In the meantime, here’s a sampling of photos from the first three months of 2016:
Is anybody else out there doing a photo challenge this year? How’s it going? What have you learned? Let us know in the comments.
