I was so happy when I watched the weather report this morning before I went to work. The lady said it would be sunny today! I was almost jumping up and down by exitment. It’s been so cloudy and quite rainy lately. And rain and clouds doesn’t go well together with photographing doors. So whenever the sun is up, I jump out of joy.
Almost every day I have some errands to run while being at work. It’s either going to the postoffice or buying groceries. And there are doors on on the way. So I bring my camera and I quickly snap a picture.
As I said, it was sunny today, so I brought my camera when I had to delivery a package to the postoffice for my colleague Pål. I was fast and it took like 30 seconds to get a picture. I’m quite satisfied with the result.
This project it going well at the moment. I’m motivated and havne’t complained in a while. At least not this week. haha. I guess it’s because we’ve had two days with sun! The sun makes things a lot better. Now I wish the snow would come, so it would brighten up this side of the world a bit. It would do my photographing good!
I got 19 doors left and then I’m half way! It’s less than 3 weeks. I’ve neve really thought I would make it half way. I remember when I hit rock bottom (read about it here) the 20th of September. I thought the darkness would kill this project. I had taken my 97th picture that day. Now, 67 doors later, I’m still doing it. The project is not dead. The darkness didn’t kill it. That makes me very happy. It’s over 2 months since that incidence. It such s long time ago, even though it feels like yesterday.
Sitting here thinking about the darkness and light, one thing comes in mind. It’s only 25 days until winter solstice andafter that day, the day will be come a little bit longer every day. The day will be a little bit brigher every day. So I’m thinking; if I managed to take decent picture up to winter solstice occures, the darkness shouldn’t be a problem after that day either.
The darkness less problematic now than I thought back in September. It still a pain in the ass and it makes this project a whole lot more difficult than it would’ve been if it only had been bright evenings. But, it’s not impossible.
Now, I don’t think it’s the darkness that will kill this project, if anything is to kill it. I think it rahter could be me getting bored of this project. That is possible. It won’t happen now though. And that’s because I got to things inside me. 1) determination 2) will-power.
I’m gonna end this like I did in another post last month:
Watch out doors! I’m on a mission. You’re about to be shot!
