#100DayProject: Photography-Week Fourteen

“The best teacher is experience and not through someone’s distorted point of view.” –Jack Kerouac

This is the final week of the #100 Day Project. I’ve learned so much about myself through this journey of taking hundreds of photos and publishing more than 70 here on the blog. I’ve gained a lot of perspective into the world of photography and fallen in love with my camera.

I also learned, that while I love nature photography, I don’t have the patience or time to get the shots I really want to capture. The hummingbird photo below, my favorite I’ve taken through the 100 days, was a happy accident. I was walking through Nevada City when this little fellow buzzed past my ear and then began flitting from flower to flower. I only got a few shots before he zipped away, but I love this one so much I’m going to frame it.

Although the project is coming to an end, I’ll continue to post photos each Monday. I have some great chances for photography coming up this summer and I hope I’ll be able to get my camera out of manual mode more and delve deeper into the wonderful ways I can capture the world around me.

Thank you to everyone who has followed my progress and given me feedback. I have felt very encouraged and supported in this journey. It’s not the end, but another beginning.

If you’re unfamiliar with the 100 Day Project, the concept is simple. You choose any creative project you like and do it every day for 100 days, sharing your process on social media using the hashtag #The100DayProject. This year the dates are Feb. 13-May 24.

  4. Aah, a fellow viewfinder! (People still bug me for not using lcd screens…nope, it’s viefinder or nothing😁)

    Your photos are … enchanting.
    Some say a song of the forest, others a short noir story…
    Don’t you find your eyes “framing” even without the camera in your hand?
    Here’s to the next 10,000 photosteps of your journey.

    • I love looking through the viewfinder and then waiting until I download my photos to see them in their full splendor. I’ve often been surprised to see details of animals I couldn’t see with my eyes. It’s magic.

      Thank you for your kind words. I do find myself framing all the time! I’ll drive down the road and see the perfect shot and then almost cry because there is no place to pull over and get it.
