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:
On my 27th birthday I started this project where I shot a few seconds of video every day until my 28th birthday. It was super fun, but unfortunately I lost the HD edit of it! Ahhhh. I still have all of the raw footage on an external hard drive, but the prospect of putting it all together again is absolutely exhausting.
I should do this again, though, it really packs in a lot of feelings for me.
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!)
