Journal History

I'm sure some of you have noticed (maybe not - whatevs) that I haven't been uploading anymore to my 365 day project. I have quit. That is, I have actively set aside my camera for a week or two. I was starting to feel like taking photos for the project was a chore, and I was forcing my camera out for each and every shot. I thought if I started setting aside time to write journals about my favorites at a regular interval that it would help, but the simple act of choosing one was a chore.

I don't want this. I want my camera to be a joy to use. For this reason (to keep myself from burning out on it) I have set it aside, for now.

This is temporary, mind you. I have already started feeling the urge to take photos again, just simply walking down the street. So don't think this is it. I'm 100% certain that I will be uploading more shots in the coming week or so.

I do want to apologize. I was willing myself through some days and producing less than quality photos. You had to suffer through them (though, no pics are better than terrible ones :)). Now, if you're a devout watcher, you have to wait a period before seeing me come back from hiding.

There was one good side to all of this. The point of the project was to get me out of my shell and trying new photos. I had never even thought to really try street photography (I can get anxious taking pictures of people in controlled environments, breaching that anxiety in less than controlled situations was even more difficult). My architecture shots were growing stale. And I was just in a rut. Now, though, I feel like I have new life in my photos and can hit the streets hard... next week.

Until then, keep flying and stay shiny!

Robert AKA Bob
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I'm a photographer that can't seem to stay in one place for long. I'm that weird neighbor that comes out and takes pictures of seemingly nothing. I started my photography career just a few years ago, and since then have done a few shows, some weddings, portraits, and stock photography for some potters. My true passion is exploring the world and documenting how I see it through my eyes.
