Another photo-a-day month has gone by and these were my four most-liked (the title of each photo was the given prompt of the day):
There are three things I've come to appreciate about this whole process:
- I've learned to let go of the number of "likes" that a photo receives. An object or setting may mean something to me but it might not be the least bit attractive to others. Then there are photos that puzzle me for the amount of attention they receive and I find myself saying, "Awww," quite often.
- Discipline isn't such a bad word. Hey, I've been at it for nine months! At least one photo a day gets shot and posted. It's time I dropped describing myself as undisciplined and fickle.
- There are kind and talented people all over the world. I just haven't met all of them, yet. When you live on an island and spend a lot of time alone, the outside world often takes the shape of the biggest headlines and loudest personalities. But on a daily basis, I see so many people complimenting and thanking each other for the brilliant scenes from their lives that they're willing to share. These people are everywhere; just look at the photos of Jill Marzion and Ann Flanagan. If you'd like, head over to the Project Life 365 stream on Instagram. I'm ready for another month.
