It may have been around the beginning of 2010 that I read about some people doing a 365 project. I thought this was really cool but didn‘t consider it for myself. That idea, however, kept coming back into my mind and then, a few months later (on May 23, 2010 to be exact) I decided to give it a go myself! I wanted to focus more on photography and thought that project would be ideal to achieve this goal.
I knew I had to start right away, on this very day, not waiting for a „first of a month“, „first of a quarter“ or any other specific date, or I wouldn‘t start at all! And I set up my rules... Every picture must be perfect, outstanding, a documentation of my getting better in photography. During that process I must learn every little secret of my camera. I have to take pictures of something grand, nothing average... and a few more. Ha!
Well, to make a long story short, I loosened up on my rules. ;-)
I discovered that I give my best every day when taking my pictures. And I realized that after those 365 days I may not be the photographic genius I would like to be, but that I will have found something beautiful in every single day, however hard and demanding a certain day may have been.
Have a nice day and find something beautiful in your day, too!
