A few thoughts on my year…. In December 2010, I had been following quite a few people in their journey to shoot a photograph a day for an entire year. I actually attempted to do the same thing with self portraits, but quite about 1/3 of the way through the process.
I ruined more than one purse by lugging around my DSLR every day, but I always had my camera with me. I probably bumped the kids in the head more times than I liked to admit with my camera or lens, good thing I usually only had the 50mm on there. Speaking of the 50mm, it got broken just weeks before the end of my project. I had set my camera on the couch and O bumped into it and knocked it on the floor.
This wasn’t the first time the thing had been banged around or even dropped (what?? if you have done this project, you totally know how easy that is to do.), but it was the last straw for my poor little nifty fifty. Good thing I have a good Santa Claus because I asked him if he could fix it and when he said no, I asked for a new one, upgraded please! I am loving my 1.4 50mm. It really is easy to see the better optics in the lens and I like being able to shoot in even lower light than before. It is especially helpful during the dark days of winter when not much light but the ones in the house are available.
So why did I do this and why am continuing on in 2012? Because I love what I have learned. Here is a quick run down of what the project gave me, taught me and why I am keeping on keeping on into the new year.
ENJOY and THANK YOU!
Thank you for your support, your comments.
And if you were near me last year, for letting me stick my camera in your face.
