Third week of Project 365, year five.
Stuck at home because of the rain. I like rain but it’s not very convenient to take photos. It’s a bit depressing when it comes to go out with a camera and an umbrella. But I managed to (almost) catch up on a project I want to share with you later and still went out to run some errants on Champs-Élysées. If you ever need to go to Champs-Élysées, when raining it’s the best time. Much less crowded than on a sunny day!
I take a photo a day as part of my Project 365. It helps me stay connected to the camera and my surroundings and forces me to produce photos even through dry creativity spells.
It’s also a great way to look back at my year, once it’s concluded. I’m in my forth year and every time the year ends I look back at the photos an wonder how did it go so fast. I always remember doing what I’m doing in the pictures like it was yesterday.
Sure, you have to be a little crazy to commit yourself to taking one photo EVERY day but once you start you don’t want to stop. It helps if you have a drive to document your everyday life, to save all you can from the present. I have that since I was five so I’m OK. Hehe.
At first I couldn’t wrap my head around the “burden” so I made a trial of taking 31 photos in 31 days.
I loved the result very much but it was hard. It compelled me to be creative because, lets face it, our lives aren’t always consecutive photo opp moments.
But it’s my life, I should be true to what’s going on, or not going on. Sometimes I just had to take a picture of my cat and be happy I have one!
At this point, after four non consecutive years, I just cut myself some slack and skip some days. I prefer to do that than to put up a sub par photo. But I’m starting to think that is just an excuse not to be creative and it’s making me reevaluate my laziness.
In this post I chose some examples of photos I wouldn’t have taken if I never started the Project.
