Final Day of Project 365

by matt on February 20, 2011

It’s here, Day 365.  There were times when I couldn’t wait for this day to come.  Those were typically times when I either wasn’t in the mood to shoot anything or was seriously lacking in artistic direction of what to shoot.  I have to admit that I thought I would have a sense of relief on this day but to be honest I have mixed feelings.  On the one hand it’s over.  I accomplished what I set out to do which was take and post a photo a day for an entire year.  I did it!  On the other hand I feel a sense of loss like a good friend just said goodbye and walked out the door.  It’s almost like watching a movie that just captures all of your attention.  You’re really into the storyline and you don’t want it to end and then it does.

But I’m sure what you really want to know is whether I am going to continue to post photos up on a regular basis.  You bet I am!  This wouldn’t be a photography site without photos.  In fact I have big plans for this blog and it looks like I will finally have the time to invest in it now that I won’t be worrying about what I’m going to shoot every day.  I’ll be working on a site redesign and including more tutorial type articles.

OK, so what is the final Project 365 photo?  Exactly 1 year ago today this whole Project 365 journey began at the Asian Celebration here in Eugene.  I felt it fitting that it end there as well.  Day 1 was an image of Lion Dancers and while I had a few opportunities to snap a images of them again today I went with the incredibly talented Balinese dancers who performed on the main stage today.

As they say in showbiz…That’s a Wrap!  I do want to say thanks to Danny Ngan who originally inspired me to take on my own Project 365.  Over the next several days I’ll be posting more images from the Asian Celebration so make sure and check them out here on the blog and in my Flickr set here.
