365 Project - Day 365 - "The End"


December 31, 2013 - "The End"

Four Years... 1,461 days of taking at least one photograph per day - without missing a single day... and now it's over. This image concludes my final "365 Project". Time to move on to other photography, painting and writing projects.

Sure... I'll still be shooting every day - I just won't be doing an official "365 Project"... meaning I won't have the weight of having to shoot every day on my shoulders.

It has been a fun ride!

365 Project - Day 364 - "Back to Work"


December 30, 2013 - "Back to Work"

I'm back to work today. I've been working from home for the past few months... but today I'm "in the office" so-to-speak. It feels weird to be back... so much has changed since my last visit. Still... it's good to be out of the house for a change!
