Below you will find the last photo of the 365 project. That’s right, I decided to end this series on my 100th shot. I have learned so much doing this project and have been hemming and hawing about it internally for a little while.
Here’s the thing…
a) Somethings gotta give…I only have a very limited amount of time to do my creative endeavors each day…and this project has been taking up ALL of that time. There have been days that I have skipped having dinner with my family, just so I can get it done and have a little time left over to blog or (shock!) just veg in front of the tube.
b) I am still really new to photography…and the other day after my sister asked me to take some photos of her and her boyfriend for their xmas gift I actually thought to myself “ack! I don’t know how to take photos of other people!” I worry that is somehow scewing my vision…that if I continue to only work on selfies, that it will shape me in a way that I won’t be able to change.
c) I have a book full of self portrait ideas…and plan to still do them occaisionally…maybe even more than occaisionally…but when I think that in order to finish the project I will have to do two hundred and sixty five more!!! It’s just too much…even after 100, which I think is a pretty good number of consecutive self portraits!
So that’s the end! I feel a certain amount of sadness about it…but then I say to myself, “Self…this isn’t the end, just the begining of something new.” And then I’m just so excited for the new chapter. So here it goes…my last and my first. Thanks you all for continuing to follow my journey!
