  • Searching for Myself Again - a 366 project

    I tried doing a 365 project a few years ago, as a challenge to my creativity. Real life interrupted, but there was an unexpected side-effect of doing self-portraits every day: somewhere along the way, I found myself.

    I got lost again, in the last few years. My world was turned upside down, due to a number of factors, but I have found myself changing over the last few months. I'm hoping, somewhere along the way, I find myself again.

    I plan to keep this to one thread, and add my photos to it. It's just easier this way (for me, at least), and less clutter on the board.

    Since I'm a little late in starting this here, here's days 1 - 4 (and I'll add 5 - 7 tomorrow). Also, if you go visit the photos on Flickr, there's stuff in the description - some too long to post here with the photos).

    Day 1 - I Will Never:

    I've been in a lot of "sink or swim" situations, and I've never seen "sinking" as an option.

    Good luck on your project. Hope you'll find yourself, which isn't an easy thing to do after your world has been turned upside down. Looking forward to seeing the images you'll create while you search for your real self. And if you do find yourself in the process, let us know who you are. Thanks for sharing.

    I wasn't born to follow, nor was I born to lead; I was merely born to choose-- and choose...I did.

                          As a total side note, I think my favorites of this series, thus far, are Day 13 & Day 17 ... followed closely by Day 5 Day 13 has actually made it to "avatar" status
