It's Done!!

Holy frog - I actually finished the 365days self-portrait project!!

For photo #365 I went back to where it all started - in my office during my lunch break.

365 days ago (ok, 368 days ago, but close enough), I joined the 365days group and began this project in order to work on improving and being more creative with my photography, and to stop being so bloomin' shy about being in front of the camera.

Much to the chagrin and disgust to many of you I'm sure, I'm not all that camera shy anymore (as you can tell from my photos). Whether or not my photography has improved any, or whether it's showing a higher level of creativity - it's hard to say - that is likely in the eye of the beholder.

At any rate, despite a few too many days of "oh crap, it's late at night and I don't have a photo - so I'll just point and shoot and post whatever", it has been a blast. I have enjoyed this project immensely, and have enjoyed seeing all of your work as well.

Will I do this again? Absolutely - but after the holidays so I can take a breather. You can look for (or be warned, and run away from) my "365 Days 2.0" set, starting on January 1, 2008.



  1. congratulations on finishing!!
    a long break sounds like a good idea, i only lasted 6 days, then i was back at it.

  2. Yay! You did it!

    Woot woot!


    Go take a picture of somebody else and then, chop chop, get back to it. :~)

  3. Congratulations! Ironically, I just STARTED the 365 project. It's my second go at it, so I know just how tough it is to stick with it and see the thing through to the end. Nice job!

  4. Thanks... I had fun doing it, and I'm (masochistically) looking forward to doing it again. I was really weird to not take a self-pic today. I keep feeling like I'm forgetting something...
