The days are getting shorter and gloomier. Pretty much all the fall colours have faded, leaving behind shades of muddy brown and grey. And I’ve been doing this project for almost an entire year—so it’s starting to feel like I’ve taken pictures of everything even remotely interesting in my apartment.
What I’m trying to say is: this is getting really difficult, and I’m kind of looking forward to the end of it.
And that leaves me with a bit of a dilemma, because at the same time, I really love this project. It’s been frustrating and boring and I love that it’s forced me to work through all of that and still take photos. And if you catch me in the right mood, I will absolutely say that I’ll do it again next year.
I want to do something different. I still want to do a year-long project of some kind, and I still want an excuse (and motivation) to post something every day. But I’d like to find a way to do it that pushes me as a photographer, that makes me think about the art and craft of photography, rather than just finding something to take a picture of every day.
So! I don’t know what my plan is for next year, only that it’s going to be a little different. Or very different. One or the other. In the meantime, I’ve still got this project to finish.
