Do you feel different today?
Maybe a sense of accomplishment?
Maybe proud of yourself?
If you started your 365 Project on January 1st today is day 100!
That is 100 days of pressing the shutter EVERY SINGLE DAY.
That is a commitment to documenting your memories and learning your way around your camera, whatever camera you may have.
Take a moment to look at your photos. See the work you’ve accomplished. Notice the patterns and colors and subjects.
What do you notice? Where does your heart sing?
I love the process of looking back at my photos. I always notice something I couldn’t see before.
I love faces in my photos and typically the faces in my photos are staring right into the camera. Shea’s. Ian’s. The dogs’. Someone once described this as “my style.” I hadn’t noticed it until she said it and I can definitely see it in my last 99 photos.
Black and White
About every four to five days a black and white photo appears in my 365. I love black and white images, but this is not by design.
About A Boy
Yes. Over and over again. He is the subject that draws the attention of my lens.
Food and Drink
Three times a day. We’ve got to eat. It makes an easy, cooperative subject. And did you notice? It’s almost always from above!
Sleeves are shorter and the garden is greener. The natural progression of the seasons shows up in my photos as you look from beginning to end. You can see our mild winter months in the lack of coats and sweaters.
This year my project is filled with imperfection. Faster paced. Less focus on taking a million photos to get the one, but more focus on just getting it done.
Pulling my photos together gives me a kick in the pants to keep going. I can see my progress and feel the excitement build about days of better light and warmer months ahead. Maybe I’ll change up my style in the next 100 days or maybe I’ll just stick with what works!
What do you notice when you look back over your last 100 days?
