Wow. I’ve made it 47 days into Project 365. That’s awesome, and I’m really proud of myself. Above is a mosaic of the last 12 days. I’m really loving my most recent photo of my red flats; and of course, the fortune cookie photo says a lot about this project and who I am.
In going through the photos I’ve taken so far (I’ve completed 13 percent of the entire project), I’ve realized that I love to photograph wild colors and small details. I’m really into still life, family life, food, and words. I’ve always been drawn to typography, but it was neat to create a photo of my own handwriting. I’ve never done that before. Also, the past couple of weeks, I’ve noticed that I have the most beautiful light coming into my kitchen every afternoon when I get home from work—which explains all the photos that I’ve taken on my countertops.
I’m attracted to reds, oranges, yellows, and greens; and lately, I’ve had a penchant for light sepia tones on photos that feel close to me (like images of my family and music). Also, I realized that I LOVE textures—and I find wrinkles, bubbles, cracks, and frays to be interesting to the eye.
There’s so much to be learned from one’s own Project 365 photos. I didn’t think about it until now, but when I study my Project 365 photoset on Flickr, I can see a distinct photographic style emerging. I’ll probably be able to tell more what that “style” is later on in the year, but it’s interesting to watch it develop with each post.
