It's the last day of June so we're halfway through 2015. I know I have said it before but it is hard to believe how quickly life goes by.
June has been busy. It's nice to have begun school holidays- less structure and slower starts.
Winter is definitely here with cool, crisp mornings. Sydney winters are beautiful, so pleasant to be outside. I went for a walk today around Watson's Bay with James and the lovely Justine. It was nice to be out and we chatted and took photos and ate fish & chips.
I think a project is always a good thing when trying to encourage creativity and a to find reason to pick up a camera. I've been playing around with the idea of doing a 365 (photo a day) but have always been a bit reluctant to commit for a whole year.
I think I have a solution that will work for me!
I'm going to do a 365, a month at a time. Starting on July 1 with a month of instant film. Each month it will be something different, something a bit challenging and something that I want to practice. I'm not sure what I'll do yet but I'm thinking things like black & white, portraits, etc???
Let me know if you have any good ideas.
I don't think I'll post them all here- perhaps a few favourites each month- I'll see as I go. I'm excited!
I took this instant film above on the weekend, it was my last film so I've ordered some more- ready to start in July.
Ten on ten for June! Ten photos over ten (or so) hours on the tenth day of the month.
I do feel really grateful for this project, a reason to pick up the camera and document my day- looking for the beauty in the ordinary. I didn't really feel like doing it today (too many boring things that I had to sort out) but am so glad I did. It makes me realise that the dull and difficult in my days don't need to overwhelm me, there is always something beautiful if you look for it.
