One year later, my photo-a-day project is finally complete. Wow. What a year! I've heard from so many of you -- both in person and in writing -- that you've enjoyed my daily photos. Thank you SO much! I'm glad you'll liked them, and I loved hearing from you.
What can I say? I gained so much from this experience... an entire year in my life, my family's life, captured in pictures -- from the highs to the lows, from the interesting or exciting to the utterly mundane -- it's all there. And it's all dear to me. Your kind words and all the photos that I may not have taken otherwise (that is SO key to this project: many photos only exist now because I forced myself to photograph something, anything, every single day)... well, they almost make me want to continue. Almost.
No, it's time to wrap this one up. I need a change, and I'll enjoy my freedom from that specific daily commitment. It was very challenging some days! And time consuming. Absolutely. But. BUT. Also very rewarding.
It's incredibly cool to be able to recall something about each and every day of an entire year. Those photos allow me to do that. I love seeing those photos in rotation on my computer screen saver and remembering all those days.
I also enjoy seeing large batches of my daily pics in chronological order. I realize you haven't had that experience on this blog, so I've uploaded the photos to Flickr. If you're interested, check out Daily Pics 2007 (there's a new link on the right sidebar too). I think it's neat to see the progression. The seasons change and my little girls grow a year older. Even our home changes a little. All in a big block of photos.
I know I said I was working on something for 2008. I still am. I'm fine-tuning my plans right now, and more importantly, taking a little break from having a specific posting regimen. Stay tuned.
Oh, and I will be posting some photos in the meantime. I just haven't had time!
