And here’s November. I’m going to hold off on posting December until tomorrow sometime as I’m finding myself unable to commit to a final POTD of the year until the night is over. Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!
I’m spending some time on this last snowy day of 2009 finishing up my Project 365 posts. This is the month of October, a pivotal time of the year for me. It starts with the second half of the move from San Francisco, through the start of my new job here in Boston.
I got some pretty good ideas for mixing up my project 365 last month but haven’t so much gotten around to implementing them quite yet. Eh, such is life, no harm no foul, what’s another six world’s cutest husky shots between friends? The full project is on flickr here, or in month-by-month form on quasify here.
Here we are, the end of June, almost July. We’ve made it to the midpoint of the year, and I’m halfway through my project 365. I want to use this opportunity to take a moment to think critically about where I want to go with the rest of the project. It seems like there’s a choice to be made to either finish out the year going along as I have, posting shots of convenience when they present themselves. Or, I could try to proactively seek out and apply new techniques and themes. I was reading David Hobby the other day and this turn of phrase stuck in my mind.
How shallow is my bag? Shallow. Would it be more interesting to make it deeper? Definintely. How do I do that? I have some specific thoughts on implementation but would rather share them on their successful execution. But I’m also open to suggestions from le galleria de legumes. I know that I want what comes next to further diverge from my standard POTD stream and the world’s cutest husky that lies therein. Also, I know that I want this effort to be more considered than it has been in the past.
One thing I like about the whole 365 concept is it serves as a defacto memory bank for stuff about my own life I’d otherwise forget immediately. My May selections cover some big-for-me stuff, 48 hours in Boston, our road trip up to Ukiah & the old people’s visit to San Francisco.
PS. Full set on flickr.
March in California, in like a lamb, out like a slightly warmer lamb enjoying a little more light each afternoon. It was getting complicated for me to keep track of the days of the year but fortunately NASA has a solution to that problem. This has been a good month for 365 – not because this batch is particularly great but because of all the friends in town gave me plenty of excuses to find new things to shoot. May April be so lucky!
For those interesting in keeping track of photo equity, seven of the thirty-one rock the dog while there are only two of CNHB & one of SMHB. Sadly, there are squat zip zero of yjp.
An utterly brilliant day here. Wet fuzz and I braved the sand sharks this morning, then later the Team Hevelone-Byler diaspora ran a total of forty-eight(!) miles, generously averaging out to a sweet sixteen each. As month number two comes to an end, project three sixty-five rolls on with photos thirty-two to fifty-nine. Thanks to everyone who left comments along the way this month – they really are motivating and do rather make me happy. Cheers!
