So this is it: the end. I’ve thought a lot about what I want to say regarding the end of this project, but honestly I don’t think a lot of it is really important. I’ve learned so much from this and I’m really proud of everything I’ve created during this past year. There are a lot of good images and a lot of absolutely terrible ones; a lot that make me cringe and a lot I should be proud of.
I decided to run the project as a slideshow on flickr the other day and it’s strange to look at how much I’ve changed. Images that were favorites for awhile now pale in comparison to others. And as glad as I am that I survived this, didn’t miss a day, ran the risk of Lyme’s Disease over and over, I feel like I’m going to wake up tomorrow and breathe.
This last picture was a bitch to get. Partway through the shoot, my hand somehow released my remote and it went into the stream. I don’t even know how my hand decided to release it. But thankfully, Craig was there with me so he helped hit the release for the last few pictures. I’m kind of bummed, but I can get a new remote. In addition to marking the end of this project, today was also my last day at the Woodstock store. It was also my first sort of breakfast date. Two endings and one beginning. Very fitting for where I’m at right now in my life.
I’m excited for what’s to come. I have a new project I want to start mapping out and I think I’m going to explore working with models this summer. Here’s the new beginnings and the next step.
