holy crap I finally freaking finished this thing!!
man, what a year it's been. so many crazy ups and downs and throughout it all a photograph a day to document it all. sure, there were a few times I posted something late or from a different day but I gave myself a few outs when I started this so I wouldn't give up the challenge. all in all I'm very pleased with myself. :)
a little stroll...
first day, so hopeful.
heres one I always liked...
this is the photo I met the amazing Anna Gay over. I adore this woman and without her art I never would have tried my own. xo~
this photo took me 45 takes.
the day I got my 50mm lens and a Holga BC135. joy~
another I really liked. thought it would make a good book cover someday.
zoo day!! god, I remember summer....
funny little one I just like...
visiting my roots.
on this day I met and worked with the incredible Brooke Shaden. she taught me how make ladies fly and how to use photoshop. never did that before. thanks Brooke!!
I made a book yo!
lots of shots of this guy...
one of my faves. and my birthday too~
my obsession with "the old dress".
lots of fun photo shoots with models...
when the test shot works best...
love this one too...
comtemplation of this last year. so much has happened for me personally as well as photography wise too. I've had an article and interview published, self published a book, become a getty images artist as well as made money of my art through society6. when I think back on all I've accomplished this year it amazes me. I only hope 2012 will bring twice as much fun and the chance for me to become an artist full time.
thank you so, so much to everyone who has ever looked at one of my photos. thank you to all my friends and supporters for helping me along this past year. this challenge was very hard for me towards the end and I'm so thankful to have you all who look and and comment on my images. we've gotten to know each other and become friends over this past year and I hope we'll continue that.
I will be taking a much deserved vacation from flickr for the next couple of weeks. I'll still be around, looking at all your streams, in fact I'm hoping to be a better flickr friend now that my 365 is complete. so I'll be around just taking a short break from shooting until I am utterly compelled to crete insted of forced to every night.
to those of you thinking of starting a 365, go for it! just make it something you know you can stick with for a whole year. your 365 can be anyway you design it. :)
crikey, I've been working on this image for the last 4 hours. I've finished my 365 and it's New Years Eve! I'm going to have a glass of bubbly and toast myself. won't you join me?
Good Luck and fortune to you in the new year~
