On January 1, I completed my 365 project on Flickr. As I predicted, I was glad to have done it, but will never do it again. Taking one photo every day is pretty easy. Taking a decent, creative and interesting photo every day is not. The project was good discipline for me, but sometimes I felt like the 365 was sapping the creativity. It’s a funny thing, that balance between productivity and creativity. If you don’t practice your craft, you won’t produce anything. But if you force the muse too much, you won’t be creative.
Now I’m looking forward to finding the balance, and shooting when I feel inspired. One thing’s for sure: I was very happy I didn’t have to photograph anything when I saw it was 17F this morning.
Anyway, here’s a little mosaic with some of my favorite pastel shots from the 365:
I’ll put up some of the non-pastel photos on Friday.
Hope your week is going well so far.
