I gave up on my Dec.19 project – taking one picture a day during the month of December – because I was reminded how much I don’t like “photo a day” type projects.
They’re not the way I like to photograph. And soon, as in this try, it begins to feel like something I have to do, not want to.
You can see that the quality of the photos declines as I moved through the month, which reflects my attitude with the project. I think this was the most disappointing to me.
I’m glad I tried it, though. It was meant to be a primer, a test, before starting 2020. One of the photo projects I was considering was a Project 365 (photo a day). Thankfully I’ll scratch that one from the list.
I have been thinking a lot, lately, about the digital photography “trend” of upgrading cameras, just as you would with computers and smartphones. And that led me to a broader consideration of how much we tend to not use things to their fullest potential (lifespan).
