Yesterday we decided to brave the cold and Victoria's cold, to take the pups out for a little walk somewhere new. Tori knew of a dog run in the next town over in Washington Lake Park so we packed the dogs up in the car and set off. I brought my X-Pro2 & the Fujinon 23mm f1.4 lens to snap some photos while the dogs ran around. The park was virtually empty so the whole trip was nice and relaxing. I wasn't feeling particularly inspired but it was nice to use my camera in a different setting and capture something new.
In my 26 (almost 27) years of life, I have never made a new year's resolution, I think they’re silly, they set people up to fail and are really just a gimmick for places like gyms to get you to spend your money. However this year I’m making one. Starting this year I’m going to actually do things that I say I’m going to do. My biggest flaw is that I walk around everyday telling everyone about all of these “great ideas” I have all of the time, yet I never act on them. When an idea goes unused it as good as useless, just like a great photo that goes unpublished. I suppose it's better to try and fail instead of letting everything sit on a hard drive in a drawer.
I might be going a little crazy from being home for the last couple of days but I've full of fresh and exciting ideas lately. It could also be the arrival of the New Year... 2016 was a year of big changes for me, some good and some bad, so now I'm looking to capitalize on 2017. My biggest project for the new year is to make one photograph a day for a year, and to post said photo on this website and on instagram. In addition to making a new photograph everyday, I will be posting a new photograph on Unsplash everyday. (If you don't know who they are I recommend checking them out) To make it a community thing, I'll be using the tag #unsplash365 so feel free to come along for the ride.
The photo of Victoria is the first submission to my "make a photo everyday" project. The two photos of In New York City are for my Unsplash 365 and are available on my page here:
