What inspired you to begin your 365 Project?
I began once before and had quit at about 18 days when I started a new day-time job that at first took up a lot of my time each day. I began a second round on 1/1/10 to prove to myself that I could finish such a project.
How would you describe your photography in just a few words?
Mostly I'd describe my photography as peaceful or tranquil.
What surprised you the most about doing the 365 project?
Two things surprised me - 1. my skills didn't improved as much as I had planned and 2. that I was feeling rather saddened as it came to an end.
What did you learn during the course of your project?
I learned that I have so much more to learn, that the Flickr community is chock full of wonderful and supportive people, and that as time went on I could more quickly choose and process a photo for the day.
Do you have an interesting story about taking one of your 365 photos that you would like to share?
The only interesting thing is why I took the Shrug photo on day 165 - I found the pattern at my late mother's house 3 days earlier, came home, and started making it, took the photo after several rows had been knitted. There are 2-3 more as this knitting project progressed and was finished.
What are your future photography plans?
I'm not going to do a 365 in 2011; I need a break. My plan is twofold - 1. to pick a subject I wish I had learned more about and spend some concentrated time on doing just that and 2. reach back into my archives, film and digital, and process some good old stuff.
