The end of the weekend


So I'm two months, or 60 photos, into this project and admittedly, I have mixed feelings.  A few weeks into it, I did struggle with the fact that there was no goal other than simply taking a photo a day.  Well, taking a photo of anything is fairly easy, I thought.  And it is.  I suppose I don't enjoy the forced aspect.  So even if I was photographing a specific topic, I would still have to take that daily photo.  Maybe I'm not meant for photo projects that contain specific requirements.  I've been surrounded by workplace rules and politics for so many years that I tend to brush off unnecessary, self-imposed rules.  There's also a little bit of that Groundhog Day feeling currently hanging around here.  Maybe that will dissipate in the upcoming warmer months.  I do want to see this project through to the end.

Gretchen Rubin has a book about habits that you would probably really like. I've tried multiple times to do photo projects before and can't seem to make it either. I do better when an outside factor is depending on me, but when it's just up to me to take a photo a day? Eh. It just doesn't motivate me.

Maybe you should set your own individual small goals within the Photo 366 thing.
Like this week I will try to get a picture of one "every day" activity each day - and then focus on getting teeth brushing, making beds, tying shoes, silly things like that where there is a more focused (sometimes more challenging) goal.
Do photos of each girl individually for a week each. Or a week of Rich only photos loll

I just did a One A Day February photo challenge and by the end I was definitely ready for a break. Way to go on keeping your project 366 going for 2 months already!

Have you heard of the app Blipfoto. It really inspires me to take a picture everyday.
