How does one end a photo a day for a year? I wanted to take a photo of something with the numbers 365 in it but of course couldn’t find anything and I hadn’t planned ahead far enough.
Next best thing? Take a self-portrait. That’s what I did. I took quite a few photos before I was satisified(ish) with this one.
I feel a fantastic sense of achievement with the completion of this self-imposed project.
And the unexpected result of doing this project is that I’m going to have a photography exhibition early next year. I’m excited and scared all at the same time but those are natural feelings when you put yourself and/or your work out there.
I don’t know what I want to achieve with this exhibition. I don’t have a desire to be a professional photographer as I think that would take some of the fun out of it. At this stage I want to keep it as a hobby because it’s something I really enjoy.
I’ve decided to do another photo a day for a year project but I’ll start on 1 January 2012 and by my calculations it will be 366 photos because it’s a leap year.
