Project 365–This Week in Photographs: Week 1

I’ve been a terrible blogger the past few months. Instead of blogging I’ve spent much of my time working on graduate school applications (which are a b**** and a half), starting a new internship in Chicago, babysitting, enjoying the holidays, and being a just a bit lazy.  There hasn’t been much time to take a breather and think of something creative to post. I’m going to try to be a bit better about it in 2013.

Traditionally I haven’t been one to make New Year’s resolutions. I’m terrible about keeping them. You know those people who read about who make a resolution to work out every day or to eat better and then break it within a month of January 1st? I’m one of those. So this year I decided to try my hand at a resolution I can keep: 1 photograph each day.

It already turns out I’m an epic failure at keeping this resolution, which doesn’t say much for my resolution skills if I can’t keep to something I actually like. I’ve missed few days, and usually try to make -up for it by taking an extra photograph the next day (or the day-after).  We’ll see how it goes, but without a lot of time for exploring the inspiration can run a little thin.

“Project 365” starts now!

  1. I keep coming back to #7. There’s a lot to see, historical, architectural, artistic. The faux(?) shingle “awnings” look like sleepy eyelids!
