Time for an Update

Hey friends.

I feel that it is now time for an update. I have some bad news.

The bad news is that I am pausing (slash, maybe quitting) my Project 52 photography project. It ended up being a little more than I could handle. Which is weird because one of the reasons why I wanted to do it was because it was weekly (not daily!) and I felt that I would be able to handle that.. and well, I can't. Last week I went out into the city to take pictures, and I got pretty depressed because I felt incredibly self-conscious. I was by myself and I didn't want to even get out of my car to take pictures. I don't know how to really explain it, but photography is a lot more fun when you have a friend to either model for you, or to just be there with you. And I thought this was something I could do on my own, and I guess in some ways I'm sure it is, but just not weekly.

However, I will still take pictures when I can, and I will still update this blog, when I can.

I know it's trite, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Most of us don't get the opportunity of sitting down with you and sharing a thousand words, but we at least get to hear some of them and know part of you through these pictures, a thousand words at a time.

Even if some days you're not into it, I think that's okay. I just don't think you should cut your autobiography short, as if you've run out of things to say.

PS You live in art-tastic Richmond where people take pictures all the time so you shouldn't have to feel self-conscious! If anyone is being a bother, you should just tell them to buzz off cause they're throwing off your artism!

Hi,

You were the "Next Blog" over from ours. Project 52 is an awesome idea. Be courageous. Most times, other people stare out of curiosity. You may even inspire someone else. “We probably wouldn't worry about what people think of us if we could know how seldom they do.” Olin Miller. Be encouraged!
