One photo a day for 516 days: I never thought it would be all roses.
Occasionally I take dozens or hundreds of pictures in a day and the decision about which to choose for the blog can become a difficult one.
Often, especially lately, I find myself taking a picture I'm really happy with, breathing a sigh of relief, and promptly putting away the camera for the rest of the day.
Some days, like today, I have no interest in pointing a lens at anything at all. The hours slip by and before I crawl into bed I frantically search for something to photograph.
Phil O'Kane blogged recently about the this negative side of a Photo 365 (similar to Day 516, one photo a day for a year).
While it’s a fun project, there will always be days where imagination is not on your side or outside influences prevent a photo from being taken… When an image of the kitchen appears you know it’s time to stop.
There certainly are low points to a project such as this; it would be disingenuous not to acknowledge them. Tonight, as I peer desperately through the blue tinted window of our bedroom, click the shutter a few times before conceding, packing the camera away and slumping under the covers, I'm left disgruntled and disenchanted…
…but there's no stopping now.
