After 110 days of a self portrait a day, I've realized that I've lost my original purpose. This was supposed to be for me, but because of who I am, it's turned into something else. As I take a photo I start to think about others.
I think... "Is this photo better or this one?" (Not "Which one pleases me more?")
I think... "Have I posted too many depressing photos?" (Instead of thinking, "This photo truly represents how I'm feeling or thinking at this moment.")
I think... "Have I done too many mono-tones lately? Not enough color?" (When I should think, "Who cares! I like the way this photo looks done the way it is.")
I think.... "Is this too personal for being online?" (Rather than, "This is me! Take it or leave it!")
So rather than second guessing myself, I'm changing things up a little. I'm 100% committed to doing this project for a year, but if that means the rules change a bit, so be it.
For now I'll be posting photos that please me. They may or may not have a description. They may or may not describe what's going on in my life. They may be accurate representations - or not. They will just be photos that please me.
And if they please you, too, that's awesome! If not, well... sorry!
