So I’ve been struggling lately to find a creative reason to pick up my camera. Many of you will know how this feels…work, family and other projects and other jobs are all very important but sometimes they get in the way of creating something purely for the joy of creating rather than because you’re getting paid to do it.
Life is much busier than when I took part in the 365 days project and I’d be staring down the barrel of a divorce and a straight jacket if I tried doing that again. I also want to do something that doesn’t have to involve my ugly mug. 100 strangers is good but quite organic in the way of timescales (i.e it’s gonna take me forever to complete! lol). I wanted to give myself quite a rigid timeline to force me to create rather than allow me to get lazy and let other things get in the way…..thus Alphabet Weekly was born. I’m going to take and post a shot every week for the next 26 weeks which will relate to the letters of the alphabet (in order). I’m sure there are probably groups on flickr for this type of thing (it’s hardly original) but I haven’t looked yet. I may even start my own group if other people want to get involved. let me know in the comments if you do wanna join me….it could be fun!
edit: you can now join the flickr group here
