That’s as far as I got. Two hundred and forty four photos. That’s as far as I’m going to get. I’ve had enough. Can’t go on. Don’t want to go on. Doing a 365, or a 366 as this year was supposed to be, is surprisingly tough. I found that out last time I did it, although I made it through to the bitter end that time. Which, frankly, makes it easier to quit this time. I already have one successful project behind me.
But I’m utterly bored of this one. I have been for weeks. Months. So I’m calling it a day. The last photo I took meant I finished eight months. I’ve had some fun doing it, and have a bunch of photos to show for it. I’ll enjoy looking back at them some day. But I have no urge to carry on.
I might do another 365 one day. When I’m back in Mexico. But one thing I will do then, will be to make it as simple as possible. It’s not the taking photos that’s a chore. It’s the uploading them to Flickr, getting them into the right set and then embedding them in a post in the 365 blog. It’s too time consuming and laborious.
Next time I’ll just do it all direct through the Instagram app and tag it ‘365’. It’ll appear in my Instagary blog, and save me a huge amount of time and hassle. I will still be taking plenty of photos with my Samsung Galaxy S2, of course. You can see them all on the aforementioned Instagary blog. And you can see the best eight photos from the aborted project below.
