I don't know if it's heresy to ask this, but here goes...

I'm now on day 320-something of my 365. Not long to go. But I'm becoming a bit disenchanted with it.

Maybe it's just that work life and home life are rather busy just now, but I'm feeling that I'm just snapping any old ... well, you know what... I'm not able to make the time to have 365 really good shots. Maybe I don't even have the vision to have 365 really good shots... I feel that I'm just shooting stuff so that I don't give up.

Does this strike any kind of a chord with anyone? Or is it proof I've missed the point of a 365?

regards,

I had exactly the same thing on and off, all the way through mine. A few weeks of rubbish pictures, but then I'd get one I was really pleased with, and I'd enjoy it again. But, after a while, the interest and enjoyment would drop again.

Stick with it though dude, it's a great feeling when you do finish! Although, interestingly, I've not picked my camera up since.

Should be moving house in about 10 days, so once we're all set up, I'm hoping to get back into it again. Maybe a project 52 or something.

Some great shots in here everyone, by the way. I still pop in and have a look ;)

You're definitely not the only one mage. I get really disenfranchised with it and the past month was pretty dull image wise. I'm pretty sure I'll finish it now that I've made it halfway, but there are definitely days when I just want it all to be over.

Asking someone to be creative every day for a full year is a lot!

Haven't posted anything here in a while, so here's a couple from the past month (some overlap from the self portrait thread, so if you go there I apologize).

don't give up!!

a close friend of mine who follows my 365 without fail gave me a bo**ocking a while ago because she said i was trying too hard with it & trying to out-do yesterday's photo etc & that i should just shoot everyday things [LIke i was previously] & just keep with trying to make them look different with dof, composition or a bit off pp - a lot of my pp is similar style anyway!! she said she'd sooner see a photo of something i've done or somewhere i've been...... so following on from her advice here is yesterday's :)

I totally understand that mate. I've now done 924 days of what started as a 365 and for the last while that's exactly what I've been doing, because I actually fear missing a day now. Dunno if that's healthy or not but I'm a stubborn bugger and I want to always be doing this. I want to one day be able to look back on twenty, thirty, forty years of photos.

And since I haven't posted here in ages, here's a small selection of my shots since I last did. All are clickable.

I was going to ask that too - it's amazing.

And thanks for the reassurance, guys - glad to know I'm not the only one who feels that way sometimes!

Selected the stream of Irn Bru (external link) from the second, pasted it into the first, rotated it and tidied it up a wee bit.

Brandon, I love you you can always take the simplest things and turn them into a work of art. I know me taking a picture of the bottom of the trashcan would look like nothing more than a bottom of a trashcan. Nice work!

Tony, nice idea with the Mac.
