since we have been doing blog posts for those that have finished up their 365... i thought i would do a short little post for me too. not to congratulate myself or anything .. but to say thank you to all of you who make the 365 community group so wonderful. it has truly made my 365 experience enjoyable (or bearable at times). there were many days towards the end there that i really didn't feel like picking up the camera. especially with summer and all the fun stuff that brings. but now that i am finished, i have to say i am quite pleased i stuck with it. it felt amazingly good to post that last photo and to think... wow... i did it.
through the year i learned about so many new things (bokeh, refractions, high key, low key, hdr, textures & more) .. and while i did not master any particular technique or develop a particular style... i certainly now know what is possible with the camera.
and along with becoming a complete flickr addict.. i am also the proud owner of many new toys.. :) imagine that! the polaroid, holga, crystal ball, lens baby and twin lens camera are some of them. so fun to play.
anyway.. i will still be around to help out with the group. might have more time now to do some more blog posts as summer has come to an end and i will be playing in msh hopefully through the rest of the year. (but wow.. the list is hard this month).
anyway.. thanks again to all of you.. and especially to PWB for starting this very cool group.
instead of posting my last photo & some favs... i have decided to post some photos that represent things i never would have tried if it weren't for hanging out on flickr and doing this project ;) if i did have to pick a fav.. it would most likely be one of my kiddo!
cheers to your friday.. and see ya in flickrland.
