I'd like to not believe it … or at least ignore it … but my calendar rudely persists in saying it's so.
And of course, if it's halfway through the year that means I'm halfway through my "photo a day" project … I mean it just stands to reason.
So I thought I'd take the opportunity to commemorate this momentous occasion by answering the questions that you may have been dying to ask … but in all reality have probably never crossed your mind.
Am I enjoying taking all these photos?
Yes … mostly. There is the occasional day when I curse the fact that I ever started … but I'm far too OCD to stop now.
Do I ever run out of things to photograph?
Yes … often. Probably on the same day I do the cursing I mentioned above.
Do I ever forget to take the photo?
Surprisingly no … and believe you me, no one is more surprised about that than I am. There have been a few close calls … but touch wood … not yet.
Have my photography skills improved?
I like to think so.
Where do I take my photos?
I take them wherever I am … which means that 99.9% of the time they are taken in either my home or garden. Note to self … must get out more … am starting to look like scary recluse type person.'
Do I take just one photo a day?
Some days I take just one … that would be on the days when inspiration has run dry and I can usually be found running around in a crazed fashion at bedtime snapping the first thing I see. Other days I take many, many shots and then find it difficult to pick just one to use.
Which leads me very nicely into the point of this post.
As the intention of the project is to take just one photo per day … the extras are then rendered useless as soon as the clock strikes midnight. From there they end up somewhere in the deep, dark depths of my computer … never to be seen again … until now.
For today … and today only … okay I can't absolutely promise it's only today.. depends how short on ideas I may find myself someday in the future … but today ... I have decided to self indulgently post a small selection of photos that didn't quite make the cut first time round.
Hope they were worth the wait.
