If you're my contact on flickr (and you probably are) you'll already know that I'm nearly two weeks into project 365 (where you take a photo everyday for 365 days).
If you've been a contact of mine on flickr for a while, you may also recall me saying on several occasions that I wouldn't ever start this project. It appears to be a sort of right-of-passage on flickr and everyone who's anyone has done, or is currently doing, this project. So I conformed. Not for this reason. I'll explain.
Recently, life has become a bit mundane and, I'll admit, I've just lost interest in the world full stop. I just don't seem to care as much anymore. Everything is routine and nothing occupies my mind as much as things used to. Even my day-dreams have become a bit half-arsed. Some of my dreams even stop half way through and refuse to continue. However, I know that this year I will be going through the most changes I'll ever experience. I start university in september. I'll be moving away from home for the first time ever. I'll be 300+ miles away from home. I'll have to make friends from scratch. I'll have to learn how to budget. I'll have to learn how to cook properly. I'll have to get a job. Lot's of changes and adjustments.
I'd like to document these changes and I think starting the project now will give me enough time to get into the routine of taking a photo everyday before my world is pretty much turned upside down. I can't wait. :D
The reason I didn't want to start this project in the first place was because I knew that I wouldn't put the effort in, and my flickr page would just be overrun with photos that I don't even like. And, to be honest, that's how the project started out. But in these past couple of days, I think I've got the hang of it and am starting to take (and edit) photos that I'm really proud of.
I just thought I'd write a post about this and let you know what was going on with me, photography-wise.
Oh, and here is today's 365 photo, in case you're interested:
