Nearly Wordless Wednesday
It’s Nearly Wordless Wednesday! I’m going to try something different this year. I explain below. In keeping with the whole photo thing, enjoy these street shots from our trip to NYC. I’ve never shot street photography before. Also, I finally got Lightroom! Yay! These pictures are probably (definitely) over-processed.
The problem: I need to improve my photography but without having some sort of direction, I tend to flounder and shot the same things over and over without improving one iota.
The solution: I need to do a project. While I have Nearly Wordless Wednesday, I have a hard time deciding images to pick for it. I want images that I can write about (to fulfill the whole the nearly wordless part) but without having any direction, I know Nearly Wordless Wednesday would quickly devolve into “Here’s my kid(s), doing I think is something cute.” Even my mom (who loves her grandbabies more than life itself) would be bored reading that. If my mom read my blog. Which she doesn’t so….
A project 365 is simply impossible. I attempted it once. You can look back through my Flickr if you want to see some monumentally bad photography. And again without a theme, it would be more of the same or random door hinges in the apartment or something as equally boring and uninspiring.
A project 52 however is much more appealing. Much much more. I can easily incorporate it into Nearly Wordless Wednesday. And the best part? THEMES! I have 52 themes that I wrote down. Ideas taken from a variety of sources (ClickinMoms, Instagram photos of the days, my own big beautiful brain).
If Kristi and Rebecca do another seasonal photo challenge (fingers crossed), I’ll suspend my project for theirs. As much I like photography, this won’t become a photo blog. I like writing too much to allow to that to happen. Also? My photos are just not that awesome (yet!).
Are you going to join me? I’ll post the themes in six week intervals. Why six week intervals? Because it’s my project. I can do what I want. And also posting monthly is too short and bimonthly is too long. Six weeks is juuuust right.
