I started another 52 weeks set with Shaun a bit over a month ago. I’ve actually missed a week or two, but I’m not fussed. Here are the first 5 shots:
1. Ohoho! Love the lighting! – Prompto,
This was just a moment where the light was really interesting, coming in through the front door and I thought, aha, it’s time to start this new set I’ve been wanting to do.
2. I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.– by J.R.R. Tolkien
On the airplane flying to visit our bestest friends in Seattle.
4. well, I’ve been afraid of changing cos I’ve built my life around you. – , Fleetwood Mac
We went for a walk. It was almost a little too cold, but actually perfect. We saw a bunch of cats, and cast long shadows as we turned towards home. I missed another week after this because I spent the whole week finally getting back on top of things around the house after having been on vacation and then ill.
I started another 52 weeks of Us in November of 2012 when I shot a photo for our Christmas card that year. These projects are some of my absolute favorites because without them, there wouldn’t actually be a lot of pictures of us together, and I try to keep them fairly candid, so it really feels like a peek back at our real life over the course of a year. In this case, it’s a little more than a year. I missed a few weeks here and there, but I decided not to give up on having a full set of 52 weeks.
The full set is on flickr, but here are my favorites:
Remember this series? Bringing it back. 2012 was a great year. I had a photo in 5×5 magazine, we got to spend time with good friends, I had jury duty and didn’t expire from the experience, we took a mini-vacation and pretended to be tourists in our own city for our anniversary, I turned 27 and had a dinosaur themed birthday party, and I started a video project on my birthday in August that led me to shoot a few seconds of video everyday for the next year (that will be my next post in this series!)
Okay, so, you know, I took a couple of months off of sharing these here, but I kept up with the project! The summer is such a drain on my creativity and we have had some busy, new life things the past couple of months.
I started 2012 with a bit of photo project burnout, but I was still pretty addicted. I did a bunch of challenges on a month by month basis for most of the year. I also started a 52 weeks project of diptychs shot on Sunday that I called Sundae. I only did 19 weeks, whoops! It was hard to take photos on one specific day of the week, and Sundays are my laziest day, so it was doomed to fail.
Here are all 19 shots! I really love them, anyway!
My first full year of video, and what a lovely year it was, too.
