I chose to start a 365 personal photo project late last year. If you’re not familiar with the concept, the purpose of the 365 is to take a photo every day for a year. I suppose it could be of anything, but I’m trying to have these images document my life in some way. And I’m trying not to cheat (too much) and use photos from my work as also a photo of my life.
Eight weeks into the project, I already hit the stumbling block of feeling like I’m tired of taking the same shots at the same angles of the same people each day. Much as I adore my husband and my youngest son (my oldest no longer lives at home), I thought more photos of them would get boring.
However, as I started editing the images and creating a collection of shots, I see that each day, even the same boring situation and subject can bring new life and new beauty. I’ve found that the images are colored not just by the time of day or wardrobe we wear, but the mood each person brings to the moment. We hear the cliché so often, but this is a perfect demonstration that each day really does bring something new.
Enjoy a few images from my personal documentary photography in Park Hill here in Denver, CO where we live.
