Okay, so Project 365 2013 is not really happening at the moment. I know I’ve been distracted by house stuff and life in general, but I should still have a few minutes a day (less than that even) to take a simply photo. I think I’ve missed more days than I’ve actually done this year. It’s the halfway point in the year, so it’s time to turn it around now.
I think part of the problem is that I’m lacking in a clear direction for this project. It’s how I am in life, I lack clear direction so I keep plodding along and going through the motions. It makes me stagnant, stuck. I’m not able to improve and be better. Most of what I do is pretty random, because I don’t feel as if I’ve found my niche. The ground perspective thing was okay for a while, but I think it’s getting a bit old. I need fresh inspiration. What I need is a theme.
I’ve thought about doing a project with daily inspirations like what they do at Project Life 365 or an Australian version from Fat Mum Slim, but I’m not sure if I have the creativity to do it. I’m a very literal person and I think I’d struggle to come up with ideas. Maybe that’s what I should do for next year though.
Last year I had been toying with the idea of doing monthly colour themes (like you can see here at Sharyn’s Shots) and I’m wondering if that’s what’s would keep me interested. I’m drawn to colour and bright things, kind of like a bird (I like pretty shiny things). It’s also a theme that has a lot of flexibility, which is something I think I need to stay motivated. Otherwise I probably get stuck and hung up on particular themes.
So what colour should I do first?
