Day 365 - End of the Road

Newer Older

Oh look, Day 365! Who'd have thought it...
Apologies for posting it a month late...
I managed to take a photo every day for a fricking year, but then it takes me a whole month to post the last photo? Oh luls...

Do I gots to be all serious now and write thanks and stuff, and talk about what a journey it's been?
I probably should...because it's true... but...GAH, I just hate cliches...

Oh well....Here goes:

I started the year with nothing but a point and shoot camera and a passion for pressing the shutter, and ended it with an SLR, about 4 lenses, 3 broken tripods, a new super awesome mega cool tripod, at least 365 new photos, a ton of new photography friends and an even bigger passion.

I think the most important lesson I took from this year is "I Can".
Can I stay up all night , only to be disappointed by the lack of sunrise? I can.
Can I build a bed out of scrap wood? I can!
Can I stand in a lake wearing nothing but a coat and take photos of myself in front of people I don't know? Yes, I can...
Can I stand in exactly the same spot for an hour straight? Yup, I can.
Can I repeatedly and thoroughly abuse my hair for photoness? I can!! (Too many photos to link)
Can I be on the front cover of a magazine? Turns out I can!
Can I earn money from doing what I love? By golly, I can!

Thankyou to every one of you who has viewed and commented and favourited and messaged, and joined my Facebook or my Tumblr or even just stalked me from afar. I wouldn't have completed this project if it wasn't for all your support. For realz...

Was that cliche and lovey dovey enough? GOOD! :)
