I have really been struggling with the 365 photo challenge recently. In fact I have started to resent it. I love my camera and taking photos, but I got to the point that it was becoming a chore for me to take a photo each day. I found more often than not that it would be around 9:00 or 9:30, and I would be getting ready for bed when I realized that I didn’t take a photo. In turn I would grab my camera and just shoot something that wasn’t that great or didn’t really interest me. Now that the cold months are here, I struggle with finding subjects to shoot anyway. I don’t want to start hating my camera and my photography just because I feel I have to get a photo in each day.
I will continue trying to take a photo each day, but I am not going to beat myself up or get upset if I miss a day or two. In fact, I have missed many days in November. I have a few to catch up on, but I am no longer going to let the 365 challenge hang around my neck like a noose. I will begin to love my camera again and enjoy shooting photos instead of feeling forced to.
If you read my blog just for photography, I apologize that you may not get a photo each day. I am going to try my hardest to continue with my photography each day, but it may not be as consistent as it has been in the past.
Here is what I have to catch up on from earlier this month. I did take a photo today, though. I am home sick with a sinus infection, but the frosty morning was too beautiful to pass up.
This picture makes me giggle. It was a beautiful day outside, so I opened the door to the deck. Instead of going outside to enjoy the day, Bandit sat in front of the open door. He usually goes outside and sunbathes, but I guess he didn’t want to actually go outside.
And there ya have it folks. A catch-up of the few pictures from the past few weeks. Again, I will try to get a photo each day, but I don’t want it to become a chore again. I want to love and enjoy my photography still and not feel burdened by it.
