This last one, my two sleepers, this is my favorite.

You know, I’ve started and quit a Project 365 several times now.  I just couldn’t maintain enough interest to go for more than a couple of weeks.  Why am I doing this, I’d ask myself.  I had no motivation, no reason to keep going with it, no purpose in the daily struggle to find something image-worthy.  But I think I’ve finally found my 365 style, a look and a way of seeing that speaks to something deep within me, and, hopefully, to other people, too.  I’m no longer looking for anything special; I’m looking for the most ordinary things, and that’s where most of our lives are lived, right in the midst of the ordinary.

Now, I’m not saying I’m actually doing a year-long photography project or anything, but I am looking for an image every day, one that strikes me as both artistic and real, and almost every day, I find one.  This is something I want to keep doing.  This is something that matters to me.

  1. I’ve actually been thinking about getting back to blogging with a 365 project. I love ordinary candid shots and take them constantly.

    1. Sometimes, it seems like blogs are dead. But I like so much that I have all these thoughts about the children as they grow up recorded and, hence, remembered. I’m trying to recapture what blogging used to be for me in that regard; I’ve gotten away from it because older children want and deserve that much more privacy, but I still have lots of little kids to write about. 🙂

      Anyway, if blogging something you still want to do, enjoy it!
