Thanks for all the kind comments after my little mini blog meltdown yesterday. I'm feeling much better today.
The light on the evening I took this photo was almost too good to believe. And I happened to be out in it mostly because I was walking home from work instead of taking the bus as I usually do. I'm a firm believer in the benefits of transporting yourself on your own two feet: some exercise, yes, but also an opportunity to reflect and to see parts of the place you live that you otherwise wouldn't.
Also . . . I'm considering starting a personal project, or at least coalescing something I'm already doing into project form. It's something I've been thinking on for a while, but I like the way that John Paul Caponigro put it in his recent post on Scott Kelby's blog about the importance of projects for defining and organizing your photography.
I'm generally so driven by what I find beautiful in the moment that I generally fail to plan or see any organization in my photos. Still, I'm sure to an observer there must be some common themes or objects or events that crop up.
What about you? Have you started any projects yet? Finished any? Don't believe in them? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
