Well, that's it for the 365...

...for this year anyway. The cold I had a couple of weeks ago put me several days behind. I did take pictures but it was slow going getting them processed and posted. But at that point, I still thought I could catch up. Then work and kids' birthdays got me even farther behind. And to top it all off, last Sunday, coming out of the laundry room arms full of clothes, I ran into our sturdy, wooden step-stool (thanks Ikea :D) which one of the kids had failed to return to its proper place.

So, here I am, after several sick-days, sitting on the couch and trying to find a position that doesn't send pain shooting up my leg, full of pain medication and with just about enough energy to send a tweet or two, make a facebook entry, or update the blog.

I guess I could, at this point, change over to a 52 (a picture a week for a year) and still complete a project. I'm really bummed out about this, because I wanted so much to finish the project. This challenge pushed me to think and get something every day to photograph, which isn't as easy as it sounds--well, at least for me. Being a perfectionist doesn't help either; I could have just snapped something with my iPhone and uploaded it, but I just couldn't bring myself to do that. I know you can take pretty good pictures with an iPhone (I've seen flickr groups and other photogs' blogs), but mine never come out that good :(

So, I've started cleaning up my pictures and organize everything properly in LightRoom (I had Bridge tags and collections before) and work on creating some textures from stuff I shot over the years, like concrete, wood, moss, etc. I've completed a handful already and pur them in a set on my flickr page. I'd love to get some feedback and, if anyone downloads and uses them, links to completed work.
