For a few years now I have participated in a yearly photo project. Participate being the key word.
In the first year, I tried to tackle the monstrous 365 Project. In this one you take a photograph and post it…
Every! Single! Day!
I think I made it to Day 56. And believe me, that was a stretch.
The next year, I joined a Project 52 group. Because, surly, one photo a week is a heck of lot easier than three-hundred and sixty-five.
And it was.
Crafting and posting my shots.
I just couldn’t seem to make it to the end.
Year after year.
This year was best run yet! I’d like to believe the only reason it failed was due to the moderator of the group up and disappearing.
It kinda takes the wind out of your sails when the project (and most of the participants) come to a screeching halt on Week 47 (or so).
And yes, I could have kept going. I could have made myself journey on.
But I didn’t.
I quit too.
And I failed, yet again.
Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure… it just means you haven’t succeeded yet. ~Robert Schuller
I just didn’t succeed (yet!).
But here comes a NEW YEAR. A year of great promise. A year of new! Hello 2015! I have NO PLANS to quit you. And this year, I will FINISH a Project 52. I joined a new group where I will post a photo on Flickr every week (based on the theme created by administrators). I happen to know these gals. I know their creativity. I KNOW their dedication. There is no doubt in mind about this project and the completion thereof.
Care to join me?
Shall we travel this path together?
Who knows what we will find?
I promise it will be worth the adventure.
Here is all you need to know (and links!) The what, the where,and the when.
The what. A Project 52. It requires you take a new photo every week and post it on
Flickr. This one is using a 50mm lens.
The where. Join the Nifty Fifty Project 52 Group 2015 and introduce yourself.
The when. It starts the very first week of the year (52 weeks- get it?). You will take a photo and post to the Project 52 group. There are themes of the week waiting for your creation. At the end of the week, a few favorites are chosen. They will be featured on this blog.
I would love to see you there. And if you don’t want to take part, you can follow me as I post my weekly images here.
All the images I have used in this post are from earlier photography projects.
I promise a lot of fun, a lot of great images, and a little push in stretching your photographic creativity.
