I don't know what's harder to believe: that it was one year ago today that I started this project, or that one year later I've finished it. I never doubted when I began that I would stick it out to the end, but some days certainly pushed me to my limit. Inevitably, a year in pictures must become a sort of personal photo-diary, and it's hard to believe not only how far I've come, but how far there is to go . . .
This project ends--- as it began--- at an interesting crossroads in my life. One year ago I crystallized a longstanding but vague dream of independence and creativity-based entrepreneurship; today I am almost 100% financially free and have the first steps of my business system in place. In one way it makes sense that these events should coincide, but it also feels like the daily documentary has stopped rolling right as the real action is beginning. To be sure, photography will always be an essential part of my life; whether "the road less traveled by" will bring me back this way again remains to be seen. Stay tuned . . .
Thanks to everyone who followed, commented, fav'ed, viewed, and above all, inspired my journey. I'd like to think my creative sense has been expanded, and that it was in part by the support of such a great community.
