Last March, on my 39th birthday, I began a 365 photo project. I was trucking along until life got hectic and I got so far behind that I abandoned the daily photo idea. And that was OK.
Summer and fall were so busy and chaotic that one day I realized that I had not touched my camera in over 2 months. And that was most definitely not OK.
On January 1, I decided to try the 365 project again. Not because life has slowed down or because I have extra time on my hands--the opposite is true, in fact. I am pretty maxed out. But I miss photography, and my skills have weakened. So I committed to simply snapping a photo a day. It doesn't have to be beautiful or creative or make a statement or be in focus, even. It just has to be.
Yesterday tested that commitment. I worked from dawn to dark, and as I walked to my car I remembered that I had not captured even one image all day. I'd be phoning this one in, for sure.
On the drive home, I spotted a fat full moon. I tried a couple of shots with my point-and-shoot, but the moon doesn't exactly photograph well with normal settings from a moving vehicle. So as soon as I arrived home, I grabbed my big-girl camera and the tripod and went outside.
