It’s official. I am now ready for self portrait taking to be over.
(365 Day 302)
I may do a non- selfie 365 next Jan, but I want to do other things with my photo time. I don’t hate it, I’m just ready to move on, that is, I’m prepared to move on. Not only have I gone far enough to prove I’ll finish, but I managed to stick with my goal of staying close to home, capturing the things I’m really doing.
I’m a stay -at-home mom. No exotic locations here. It was backyard, refinery-view neighborhood, poorly lit indoors, dog hair on the floor, and several in my garage- yuck. I often dared myself to take a decent image in some of the blandest places- like my bathroom.
But it was alright. I know I will cherish this document of a year in my life. And I’m very thankful for the things it’s caused to rise to the surface. I will never look at anything, any light, or any place as totally without merit again, especially after taking a photo I liked on the floor board of my car. I won’t be as limited as I once thought I was. And I won’t ever be as hard on myself.
