365 what 365 huh

Earlier this year or rather the end of last year, I told myself that I was going to attempt a 365 project, something I've never tried before. And here we are. It's March 1st, and I just can't anymore or really I don't want to anymore. My head isn't in the right place. Maybe my thoughts aren't in the right place. My life isn't in the right place. For that commitment. It sounds silly, I know. And it is funny though because it sounds simple {take a photo everyday of yourself and post it, that's what I was going to do} but it takes effort to remember and keep up with it and after the whirlwind that was my last year, I'm just not ready for it… yet. I read about the idea from Elsie on A Beautiful Mess - adore her - love them. And I like her idea this year, where she is posting pretty much just any photo a day of her home life versus it being a self portrait. That sounds more appealing and maybe I'll try for that next year but for now… here is a little of what I did capture of myself this year.

It was a bit insightful looking back through these simple moments and I can think back to the emotion or the day I was having and almost feel that time. It was fun for a couple months but photographing yourself. everyday. and for a full year? right now? 
No, thank you… not right now.

I did a 365 project and I agree with you, it sounds so silly and super easy but it's actually so hard. There are days when I don't feel like getting out of bed and the thought of having to go out and take a cool picture of something that would, in the end, represent that day was sometimes so damn hard. But I've decided to give it another go in a month, on my birthday because I really like that project and the way it pushes you to try harder and evolve more as a photographer :))

Oh my, sorry for such a long comment :))
Have a wonderful weekend!

I love the idea of a 365 Project but I feel like mine would turn into one revolving around makeup, shoes, and books - those seem to be the three things that always wind up in my pictures! :P

I agree with the fact that you're stopping it if your heart isn't in it - that's what matters most!

Good for you for stopping. The whole point of 365 projects is to enrich your life, and sometimes enrichment comes from taking a step back.

Hope you keep this blog up though!

Take care, hamilton xxx
