This is what happened: I thought I was done putting too much pressure on myself with this project. And then I missed a day (lack of inspiration, or motivation, or something else... I can't remember at this point), and then two days, and then I started feeling anxious about how the project had stalled....
Now that I've taken some of the pressure off - and since I've had fresh flowers on hand to play with - this project is fun.
Ok, so: I’m not going to try to take a photo every. single. day. That was the original plan, but this past week (and a half) reminded me how much that kind of pressure stresses me out and makes me resent the entire process.
I might have freaked out - just a little - when it came time to actually start this project.
... and just like that, I'm taking pictures that I like again.
I didn't get a chance to post my Project 365 photos last weekend, for a number of reasons. (And I'm probably going to be a day or two late on this month's sketchbook post.) But that's ok: I'm still staying on top of the project in general, and this particular group of photos feels like it works as a set.
I'm getting back into my groove with this project, just in time for the short, grey, dreary days of November. Awesome.
Admittedly, this hasn't been the most interesting week for photography. It started off strong, but, as I mentioned before: it's really difficult to come up with something interesting to photograph when you're not feeling great.
I'm still trying to catch up with my Project 365 posts. I really don't know why it's such a struggle - I'm not behind in the pictures themselves, not really.
I'm still running a little bit behind on my Project 365 posts. Partly, it's just that I've been busy (I can't wait for you guys to see some of the pictures I took last week!), and partly... I'm still not sure that a one-week schedule for these roundup posts really works for me. A two-week - or monthly - schedule might click a little better.
