251/365 FINAL PHOTO - I'M DONE WITH THIS PROJECT
Well, it looks as though I have fallen off the wagon in 365 land. I have gone days without posting or taking a picture. And the truth of the matter is that I've been very happy with the past few days. So, even though not many people follow my every move here, I feel it's important to announce that I am through with my project. I got almost 70% of the way through the year, but with school starting back up and all the pressures related to being a teacher and a masters weighing me down again, this project has become more stressful than it's worth.
And on top of that, I think I've learned all I can learn in a project like this. I've grown a lot since January 1st, and I'm super glad I went through this process, but just the other day I found myself comntemplating building a white-box so that I could do a ton of simple object photos with white backgrounds. I know how to do that. I've done that before. I'm not going to spend another 114 days doing shots like that because there's nothing to learn in that, and really, that's all I'd be able to consistently do throughout this semester.
So anyway, thanks, everyone, for your comments, your favs, and your support. It's been real. I won't disappear or anything, but I won't be posting daily. Maybe next January I'll starta 52 week project :P
