I have decided to join a 52 weeks project with some photographer friends. While this is something I have wanted to do for awhile, life is busy and this has always seemed to add to may already long to-do list so I haven’t done it.
So why is now such a good time? Well, actually, it’s not. It’s just that as I thought about our group’s theme of “closer” and what it meant to me, I realized that there will NEVER bee a good time.
The truth is that I am doing this for myself. I want to take a closer look at life, my surroundings, my family. Sometimes I get so tied to getting the perfect shot, that I forget to see what is really happening. I was actually getting so focused on the shot that I was missing life, so I stopped taking my camera with me when I wasn’t working.
Please bear with me as this project isn’t about the perfect shot. I really hope it will be about the imperfect shot, but in the end I will have one photo a week to remind me of my journey through 2012.
