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.
