Well here I am again, another year passed and the beginning of another (I keep up with 'years' based on my daily photo anniversary, not Gregorian Calendars
). I must say that the 7th year of my daily portrait challenge has proven to be the one that got away, I started the year behind already, and the added challenge of having to wrangle my often uncooperative husband into the shot just made for more than I could keep up with. I think I got about 98% of the days taken, but there were quite a few days where, laying in bed with the lights out, I just figured it would be easier to not get a photo that night and try to make it up the next day. Especially since I knew I'd have to get my muscle man to join me. Combine that with what has been a terrible past few months at my real life job, and things just haven't panned out for me to have all my images uploaded before my finale date of April 15. I've still got all the raw images, and maybe I've have some time to edit and upload them soon, but if not, I'm ok with that. They aren't really my best work, and most of them are just nightly shots taken in bed or at home, so they aren't keepsake images for me and my muscle man. I may upload them on my blogger account (another platform that has also fallen victim to my chaotic year... I've barely posted there either)
But now it's April 16, the beginning day for my 'next year' and I'm at a crossroads. I really do hate to give up the photo-a-day challenge, it's become so much of who I am. And as I started the project as a tribute to the amazing
, I just can't give up what has become a (mostly) daily challenge. So I'm not giving up. But I am evolving my project. I figure there are enough photos of my face on the internet, so I'm going to try a more traditional 365, peppered with self-portraits, shots of me and my muscle man, still life shots and photos of my wonderful shiba inu pup
Or whatever I happen to find to photograph that day... We'll see what happens.
And (I know I've said this before, but..) I'm really going to try to upload my shots daily
That may mean some SOOC shots uploaded from my tablet (I got a eye-fi mobi card for Christmas, it uploads jpegs from my camera to tablet wirelessly)
