I had so many ideas for a 365th shot but decided a tribute to my Granddaughter was how I wanted to finish. She has been a big help to me in my project and in my overall practice and experimentation with photography. So many people comment that we look a lot alike so this gave me a chance to see just how accurate their assessment is.
I shot my Granddaughter's picture a few days ago and worked very hard today both with my own selfie and then trying to recreate the processing. It's not spot on but it's close and I'll call it a wrap. On this last shot for my year, I learned something new yet again...write down what you do in case you want to do it again!
To all my 365 friends, to those that have viewed, commented, FAVd and helped me grow, to Miss Pam at my Grandaughter's school who told me about 365, I just can't express how wonderful you all are. I am in awe of your talents and I've enjoyed watching many of your photography experiments and growth along the way, too.
I started this project with a very simple shot of a cantalope! I was just months new to photography as I had never had anything more than a "point & shoot" until then. The DSLR can be overwhelming with so much to learn about the camera itself and about photography but I can't begin to tell you how much you all have helped me learn, been an inspiration, and given feedback that proved so valuable to me.
I will be back but not sure exactlly when. I'm going to take a little break like so many others have done after their first year. And I have a new format for my 2nd year project in mind.
I appreciate simplicity so I will simply say...THANK YOU!
