On Endings & Beginnings
Last week I shared the following news with my patrons:
I feel ready to end my daily photography project—My Morning View—because I'd like to start something new. I'm not sure what the project will entail, but I know it's time to move on. I started my photography project on January 1, 2013; that's over five years ago! Plus, the 6th anniversary of my dad's death is on June 10, 2018, and it feels like the right time to end the project.
I can't believe I've been taking my daily photo for over five years. That amounts to 2,007 photographs! If I'm accurate, the number of photos I've snapped over the last five years is more like 4,500 because on a typical day I take multiple shots of my morning view.
My daily photography project helped me move through grief, and I learned valuable lessons about photography along the way. But, it's time for me to focus on different subjects. This summer I'm going to document my adventures in Paris with words and photos, our upcoming move to Chico, and the beautiful sights in Siskiyou County.
I'm not giving up my daily photography practice, my love of photography, or taking coffee themed photos. Instead, I'm changing my focus slightly.
Have a lovely week!
PS: To celebrate my photography project, the PDF version of my book—My Morning View: An iPhone Photography Project about Gratitude, Grief & Good Coffee—is on sale for $1.00! Grab your copy here. The sale ends on June 11, 2018.
