I wanted so badly to finish my original 365. To somehow salvage something that I knew was in the process of falling apart. But with the arrival of 2012, I’ve made a decision. Start over and try again.
So for 2012, the goal is 366 days of self portraits (an extra day because it’s a leap year).
Why am I starting over?
I missed so many days in the last project and found myself avoiding because I could. I’m actually having a bit of a mental block (the ideas are there but I’m afraid to execute) and miss how shooting daily forced me to create even if it resulted in something bad. In the 100 days I did shoot, I managed to learn a lot about myself, go outside my comfort zone, but I feel the journey was cut short.
So I’m going to do it again.
And hopefully this time, I’m going to finish.
