Wow, after 2 years and 730 daily photos I can finally say this project is finished! I’ve enjoyed the practice of taking and posting one photo for every day of the year but now that it’s over I’ll admit to feeling a little overwhelmed by the pace of creating 30 new photos every single month. Scaling back to a few per week seems a lot more realistic and I’m looking forward to a lighter schedule, posting when I want and jumping back into some of the challenges I’ve missed.
Instead of 7 images and 1 full week we’ve got a super-sized gallery of 11 to finish out the year and I like the stories that they tell. We start with a street performer in Seattle, a sleepy Finn and a beautiful sunset. Ryan and I sat together in the car on a clear, cold night unable to leave this view while the radio played an acoustic version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity. My last 7 shots are an exploration of the soft blues and grays that make up so much of our Pacific Northwest winters. For editing I reached back to some tried and true favorites so you see one shot processed with Oggl and the rest were finished with VSCO. All images were shot with my iPhone 7+.
