Over 2/3 of my summer project is done. I have now 26 days left. I have to say I’m quite proud of what I have achived so far. There hasn’t been many days when I have complained or wished to end it. Even on the rainy days I’ve managed to get some good shots. Like I said in my last post, rain doesn’t limit you. Rain can be beautiful.
I wanted two diptyches every week. I don’t think I’ve managed that, but it’s not a big deal. As long as I’ve managed to take a photo a day throughout the whole summer, I’m happy.
Having a photoproject going, is a good way to keep the photography alive. You improve with every new shot you take. And improvement is good.
I’ve been thinking of what to do when this project is over. Will I start a new one or will I go back to just shoot whenever I feel like it? I think I want to start a new one. But what? And how often? One thing I’m sure of, it won’t be a 365-project. I’ve tried that once, and it was hard. I could of course just do a no-themed 365; just take a photo each day. But I would like a theme.
I have a few ideas though:
- 52 self portraits (one each week)
- 52 sundays (or another day, just take a photo one particular day. The photo must say something about that day)
- 52 monochrome photos (one each week)
- 52 food shots (one each week)
- 30 days of food (one each day for a month)
- 30 days of monochrome photos (one each day)
- 30 days of Oslo (one each day. Requires me being in Oslo for month, not going anywhere)
Is there any other good ideas out there? Don’t be shy, bring it to me!
There is no rush to decide. First I have to finish the project I’m doing now.
Today I decided to walk the last part of my way home from work. It was raining. My shoes were almost soaked just by walking ten steps from the busstop. So when already was wet stepping out of bus number 20, there was no use in waiting for the next one. If I walked home, I could take some rainy photos.
Here are a few more shots from today.
Seeing the two last photos together, I see that the colors match. Not sure if they match in a diptych, but the colors looks great together.
