Project366: #41-50

This was the first week (I’m using the word ‘week’ loosely, just work with me here) in which I was genuinely happy with (almost) every single photo I took. In fact, this week includes one of my very favourite photos ever. (Not the oranges. That’s just my favourite for this post.)

So that’s nice!

One of the things I’ve noticed with this particular project is how often I’ve been revisiting subjects from my first Project365. As I said on Instagram, sometimes that’s just the nature of the subject (I’m always going to take photos of Lucy, and of baked goods), sometimes it’s an intentional attempt to reinterpret a subject, and sometimes… it’s just what happens.

Whatever the reason, I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. There’s a clear difference in my photography—both my skill and my tastes—two years ago versus today, but sometimes it’s hard for me to really see that progression. These near-duplicate photos make it obvious.

(Project366 runs from 23 January 2019 through 23 January 2020. I’ll posting to Instagram daily, and rounding up the photos here every ten days.)

  1. Great, great shots! I was absent from blogging, and I can see a significant change on your craft. I feel that its the power of doing it consistently, and being persistent. I’ll follow you on instagram.

    Stay inspired!


    1. Thank you so much! The quality of my photos tends to come in waves—which is wonderful, in that those waves are more likely to happen when I do work consistently at it, but it’s also a little frustrating because I’m committed to sharing everything, not just the photos I’m happy with.

      This was definitely a high point.

      1. Excellent resolve! Looking forward for more. Have a good day. Stay inspired.
