It's been longer than I'd like to admit since I've worked on a personal project. I have made excuses. I don't have the time or energy to focus on one more thing. I shoot so much for work that I can't find the motivation to get my camera out when I'm at home. I can't imagine taking on more editing and post production work on top of my current client work. But, things have both slowed down, in the off-season, and sped up, as my children are growing up before my eyes, that I felt it was the perfect time to focus on something for me. I am only two months into my "photo a day" project but I am still really excited about the day to day images I'm collecting and the new way I am seeing my house, my kids, my light, my life and the world around me. Most days are a blur and by the time 9 o'clock rolls around I could easily close my eyes and drift off to sleep for 12 hours if that were a possibility, but lately, 9 o'clock means I finally have an opportunity to open my laptop and pour over the images I've created from the day. And more importantly, these images will serve to remind me of details I am bound to forget as the weeks and months pass. If you've heard about the 365 project and considered trying it for yourself, it is not too late to start. Whether with a point and shoot camera, an SLR or a phone, I would encourage you to give it a chance and see it changes the way you see the world. I have been so pleasantly surprised by how much I have enjoyed the process and the challenge.
