Weekly Photo Project – Intermission

After completing half a year without missing a single day, I purposefully took a break from this photo-a-day project. At first I was a little anxious, because I felt as though I was selling myself short. I mean, I made it halfway, why can’t I just pull up the bootstraps and persevere? However, the break was refreshing, and perhaps necessary, and those initial feelings soon subsided. I was able to reflect back on the 26 weeks that had passed. I now feel ready to tackle the second half. I said this before, if I were to do this again, I would schedule periodic breaks, maybe once a quarter. In a way it goes against the idea of capturing a picture each day, but, at the same time, if one needs a mental refresher, one should take a mental refresher! I definitely needed one, and I’m happy that I took it.

Below you’ll find one photograph that I’ve selected from each week of this project. What I found interesting as I looked back at each post is that for some of the weeks there were several good pictures to choose from, and other weeks there were seven mediocre-at-best pictures posted. Those weeks that had several good photographs in them, I remembered that there were other good images that I could have also included, but I had to pick just one for each day. Good photography doesn’t happen daily, as it takes the right subject at the right time in the right light and with the right vision. Doing a project like this increases the odds, but it’s still not going to happen every time I have a camera in my hands. But when the right conditions occur, it’s usually not just one good frame that I come away with, but several. It’s important to take advantage of those moments when everything comes together, and really squeeze the best pictures possible out of them.
