So it's the fifth day of the New Year. I have a few goals, or hopes (or whatever you've decided to call them this year) for the year floating around in my head, mostly small stuff. Some of them involve stuff like, read the Voyage of the Dawn Treader in the next four hours before I go see the movie today. Stuff like that. On the top of the list is documenting the books I read this year. I've failed to do that in the past, and my dad suggested I start.
I've been toying with the idea of starting a 365 blog, and to prepare for that, if I do decide to start one, I've been making sure to take at least a picture everyday. Yesterday's were a lot of fun because 1) My sister is gorgeous and incredibly photogenic, 2) I got two new lens filters for Christmas that I think are for portraits, so using them was fun, and 3) I don't generally take portrait shots, and I like it.
If I do start one, I think I'll call it something similar to a New Story. Reasons: 1) I've always used words to communicate stories, mine or others. Telling stories has been something I've done ever since I was little, but always with words. I've recently realized that photography is another way of telling a story. 2) This summer I wrote about individual stories, and how people have a story to tell, and 3) Someone recently told me that my photos tell stories. That's such a powerful compliment.
Yay or nay on a 365? I'm leaning towards a yes. I just created a photography course yesterday for this semester. The course requires a website of some sort, to display photos, advertise, ect., so I may combine the two. What do you think?
