Projects through the years: a year in photos 2013

2013 was an extra fun year. I crocheted A LOT, all year long. I upgraded the power supply, graphics card and RAM in my desktop which turned my computer into a wonderful piece of work, we got passports because we road tripped all the way to Canada, via Seattle, we spent about a month in the PNW, which was a total dream, my mama painted a beautiful tree for me and I felt really creatively fulfilled all year long. The full set is here, but these are my favorites:

Projects throughout the years: Failed 52 weeks, 2012

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!

Projects throughout the years: A Picture a Day 2009

2009 started out rough. What I remember most about the beginning of the year was how Shaun took care of me. My dad had just died and I felt very helpless and brokenhearted. Shaun spent a lot of the school break packing me and my cameras into the car and driving me to pretty places to distract me with photography, like he had perfectly intuited what I needed at that moment. The whole world felt different. I felt so broken, but also braver. My dad dying was (and still is) the worst thing that had ever happened in my life and I had faced it and my anxiety wasn’t so scary anymore. I spent some time wallowing in the groove on the couch created by my grief-stricken Lord of The Rings marathons, yes, but I came out stronger than ever. I also think my photography became more important, it had more purpose, I wanted to capture every single thing about my life, and preserve it forever.

Projects throughout the years, 365 self 2008 – 2009

I started my second 365 self portrait project on my 23rd birthday. I wrote more about 2008 on this post.  I was feeling so inspired when I started this project. Then it became a strange conduit for grief. I was glad to have it, and I’m glad to have this record of one of the toughest year of my life, but it’s still hard to write about. I thought I was doing better than I was. In retrospect, most of what I remember of 2009 was napping on the couch, watching Fellowship of the Ring over and over, and crying.
