So last year I did attempted the project 365…and although it was fun and I did find joy from it, once I lost my place (after going out of town) I wasn’t able to just pick back up. I was disappointed that I didn’t finish the project, but it’s not something to beat myself up about – that’s for sure! This year I am taking part in a challenge with some of my photographer friends from the amazing site 4 the love of focus. We’ve partnered up with another photographer in another part of the world/country and we get the same prompt for our image each week. We each take a photo and post them together in a diptych later in the week showing our own interpretations of the word side by side. I’m super excited for this project and I think that it is a great way to stretch my creativity.
Each year around this time my mind goes to my goals and the things that I want to accomplish…where I am in life currently and where I want to be…and the steps needed to get there. I have a long post in my mind about this topic and about my one little word for the year, but that will have to wait for another day. For now and for my image I wanted to come up with a photo that depicted something I have been working on for the past 4 months and something I will continue to work on in 2011 and the many years to follow.
Fitness. My personal physical fitness and well being. And weight loss. But most importantly, fitness. I have loved the journey that I started on in September with my physical fitness and although I am not where I want to be nor where I need to be yet…I’m getting there. One day at a time. And although losing weight would be a great benefit, the best part is just being active and wanting to be active. For me, that’s huge.
My partner for this year long project is the very talented Kristyn of Kristyn LaPresPhotography (portrait and lifestyle photographer in West Michigan) so please take a look at our images below and be sure to check out her blog as well!
