Thoughts on My 365

by Stephanie Hyde May. 09, 2017 1377 views

I'm new to 365 projects and started for the first time in January.  It was honestly daunting at first but I've grown to look forward to it daily.  Undertaking the process was really the perfect solution to get me practicing on a daily basis.  I can see the growth from where I was last year...which is always motivating to keep practicing and improving.  I dare say I might be addicted at this point.  I have been through periods where I was less inspired but pushed through to find some creativity again.  

I do love coming here and seeing all the exotic, beautiful locations people get to photograph.  I sometimes feel out of place that my images are boring or uninspired.   I'm at the raising children stage of life that doesn't allow me to travel much.  My goal is to show my little corner of the universe and make it as interesting as possible to me and document my life for the memories they will hold for me one day.  I already look back and enjoy seeing the wonderful  moments I captured.  I can look back over year ago and see this shot...

And then this one taken a year later...Same view essentially but lots of practice and a different perspective.

There really are interesting stories all around waiting to be told from your perspective.  

Thanks to everyone who has liked, commented or given me some great constructive criticism.  I'm inspired by all of you and your stories.

What may seem common & everyday to you, doesn't mean it is to eryone else.
Everyone's life is unique and worth sharing with our "fellow travelers"........IMHO......

I've really enjoyed following along with your project! I've been doing my 365 project since January (about the time I started to get more interested in photography) as well and seeing the images that your and others have been producing definitely help inspire me to a level I may one day achieve.
