On day 11, I was in the process of deciding what to take a photo of when my snuggle buddy Juni came and interrupted me. I decided a picture of petting him was a good subject matter for the day.
This is a terrible picture. Really. I woke up in the night and realized that I hadn't taken a picture of the day yet and so I rolled over and took a picture of the darkness outside my window and later I layered another photo taken this month to create a fake sunset.
Honestly, this photo has me thinking about this project and why I am doing it. Is it really beneficial to do a 365 project if I don't try to take at least a decent image each day? I think I've come to the conclusion (at least for now) that this project is still beneficial even if I am not motivated or inspired to take a good picture every day. The reason I've come to said conclusion is because this project is causing me to pick up my camera at least once every day. Some days I take terrible pictures, but other days when I wouldn't have wanted to pick up my camera, this project has helped me pick it up and sometimes I've captured something special to me. I also look forward to looking back at an entire year and have a glimpse into an aspect of every day that will make up 2014.
Once again this was taken during a late night picture taking time. However, this time I was determined to try to do something at least a little better than day 12. This photo was created simply with my camera and light from my cellphone. I like the way it turned out.
I promise that the majority of this project will not be about my cat. Well, I will try to make sure that it isn't.
I am realizing that my Juni cat is a big part of my life when I am home. We spend a lot of time together snuggling on my bed. He has held a dear place ever since I found him when he was tiny stray kitten. This picture was my attempt to capture a little bit of how adorable he can be when he sleeps all snuggled up.
This bird makes me think of my sister and my friend Kelly. It makes me smile. That is all I have to say about it.
My other cat Girly Girl decided she needed a turn in front of the camera. See? This project isn't all about my Juni cat.
Another late night/bedtime picture. This was taken with a hand held flashlight and my camera.
I am actually really happy with this photo concept. My inspiration came as I thought about the way lightbulbs are often artistically placed over a persons head to signify an inspiration or an idea. I began thinking about the way ideas can come quickly like turning on a light and other times they begin as a small concept and grow into something greater.
Happy weekend to you!
