"I have a flash new camera. It should be much easier to take photos everyday."
These are words I'll probably eat now for ever saying. But yes, for those who are connected to me on Facebook will know that I have begun a 365 Photo Project. For the next 356 days I aim to take a photo each day. Simple? Yes. Easy? No.
It all began when I, after months of saving and waiting for the perfect sale, bought Jerome my new Canon 700D DSLR camera (named after Jerome from Switchfoot - because Jon and Tim as camera names don't work too well). For a good portion of my teenage life I've borrowed the family's 400D, and later on my boyfriend's 600D when I had to work at concerts. No longer wanting to rely on borrowing other cameras, it felt good to finally invest into my own. It was like living out all the dreams I had. I wanted to be that person capturing moments every day just like I used to in high school at the peak of my photography passion.
"I'll take photos every single day! I'll always be prepared in every moment. I will capture beautiful things."
16 days later, I'm still going - just.
