Today I took my last picture for Project365, meaning that I have successfully taken a photo a day for a year. Holy crap.
This project has been quite a trip. It wasn’t always easy, that’s for sure. However, the experience overall was SUCH a positive one. I think my photography has come a long way since last October, and I’m looking at the world in an entirely new way.
It’s staggering to look back at all 365 photos and see the past year documented. A lot has happened through this year of pictures… A year ago, I was still in graduate school, living with my parents, working as an administrative assistant, nearing the end of a long relationship, and just beginning to realize how much I loved to take pictures. Today, I have a masters, I’m working as a librarian, living on my own for the first time, dating someone else, and feeling a little less strange saying that photography is one of the things that makes me really happy.
I don’t know what’s next for me, but I only hope my next endeavor helps me grow as much as this one has. I also have to say thank you to everyone… for helping me along the way, for inspiring me, for listening to me worry about my photo for the day, for being IN the photos themselves, for always encouraging me, and most of all, just for following along.
