I find it hard to believe, but I'm almost done with the photo challenge. Yup, I'm almost there. Today is day 353, which means I only have 12 days to go. Wow.
I'm pretty proud of myself-- I haven't missed a day, even though some days it has been really challenging to get a photo. To be quite honest, not all of the photos are that good. But, not all of my days have been that good. All that matters is that I did it. I made it.
Well, I've almost made it-- twelve more days to go, you know. I can't count my chickens before they've hatched. I think I'd like to have chickens, actually. If they didn't stink so much. Stinky chickens.
I've experienced tremendous growth over the past 353 days-- both in my photographic abilities, but also in how I view my life and my surroundings. That was the whole idea behind the challenge, so I'd say it worked. Mission accomplished. I can't even express how happy I am with that.
The best part is that even though not all of my photos are good, some of them are! I have some great shots of my kids, and some great shots of STUFF. Enough that I don't even have wall space for all that I'd love to frame. Enough that I'm even thinking of selling some of my pictures online. I mean, I may not have enough space to frame them to enjoy, but maybe someone else does!
It's a big risk, though, to put myself out there that way. I mean, what if no one wants to buy something like this?
This one is nice and bright, too, but I'd have to say it's just for my archives...
I don't think anyone would buy this one, but it's a photo that I am proud of myself for capturing. Some days, from the car, on a rainy day, on the go was all I could manage. This is a product of one of those days.
And it's quite possible that I'm the only one crazy enough to want to put this on her wall. But I've always consoled myself with the thought that I'm not the only crazy one out there. I hope I'm right.
I thought this one might look cool inside a matted frame. You know, kind of a matted-frame-inside-a-matted-frame effect. But that's just me.
Anyway, selling my photos is only an idea I'm tossing around. Most of the photos I take are really just for my enjoyment...
And this one? Well, I don't know what to say about this one. There's really no reason for it.
Um, yeah. Sorry about that.
