I never thought that spring would come.

Please do not view this picture as any indication of my integrity. I'm begging you.
Originally, I wasn't going to post this shot. It was more of a test (practicing with my reflector), and admittedly boring, but it has grown on me and I AM doing a 365, the point of which is to be less uptight in my work. So here's day 34. It's not a masterpiece, it's terrifyingly bland in relation to what I usually do, but such are Friday afternoon whims.
Emily brought up a thought a few days ago about casual 365s: why continue doing it if you're days behind, as I am, and not doing it consecutively? I wonder this myself. Is 365 helping or hurting me? I've seen wondrous things happen for photographers who do 365 projects, but I'm not sure if that's happening in my case. I think the reason I continue is because if I didn't think in the 365 mindset, I wouldn't get anything done. And I do plan on doing 365 solidly during my spring and summer breaks! But how is 2010 for me, artistically? There have been good pieces, of course, but disappointing ones, too. This particular picture is embarrassing for me to post because I know I can do far more interesting things.
I need to think about where I'm going.
