I told you all about the Project 365 challenge I was doing where I have to take a photograph every day. I can save them up and post them in batches, but the idea is that I shoot one every day. I started this in August and was vigilant about getting a photo every day even if that meant I had to take a picture of Arthur pulling on my shoelaces as I sat in my recliner late at night, or I had to walk around my yard yet again and try to find a spot of color in the waning flowers.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, my “What would you do?” is not an earth-shattering question or dilemma, just a little getting-to-know-you-better question.
You might have noticed my recent absence, or short cameo appearances, in the blogging world. We have been planning, preparing, and then throwing a celebration or reception at our home for our son and daughter-in-law who got married in a private ceremony in August. The party was this weekend, so once I clean up the crumbs, wash the sheets and towels, and put away the toys, my to-do list will become exponentially shorter.
I was still able to get my one photo a day in the days leading up to the party. I took pictures of the mums we were shopping for, and the solar globe lanterns we hung on our deck. But when our children and grandchildren started arriving for the weekend, and the party day came, I fell off the photo wagon. You would think the opposite would be true, but not so.
So here’s my question. What should I do about the photo a day?
Should I wave a white flag and say, “This is really too large a comitment, I’m going to abandon it after only two months” ?
Should I cheat and take make-up pictures today changing the meta data to make it look like I kept going?
Should I just leave the days without photos blank, and keep going from here, accepting the fact that I’m not perfect, nor do I need to be?
What would you do?
