365 Project Photos

So, regular readers will perhaps have noticed that we're quieter than usual around here. For my part, writing has been low on the list of ways I feel capable of expending my creative energy. Which is really pretty ungood for me, but there you have it. In the absence of writing, I've committed to a 365 self portrait project for the year, which...well, let's just say there may actually be well over 365 photos by the end of the year, but it won't be because I'm diligently taking one photo a day every day. No, not so much.

Which leads me to some genuinely interesting questions about why I'm doing a year-long project, what I want from it, how I want to (gasp!) improve my technical knowledge and execution, why self portraits in particular, how much can you do with self portraits, etc. Which will all maybe encourage me to sit and write at some point, which is a cheerful thought. But for now, I thought I'd take on at least a little bit of the bloggie responsibility around here and share some of the photos I've done so far this month, the ones I'm most excited about.  xoxo


  1. These are lovely images, Amy. ~Jenn Raison

  2. You have to appreciate a blog *so* half-assed, one of its two co-bloggers didn't even know her counterpart posted for the First Time In Months. Hello, Gorgeous! I know where you've been, but I didn't realize you have access to such finery! Bryn (gaping) Maw looks good on you. xox

  3. Hey! (Both of you!)


    1) So glad that we'll be seeing 365 photos. I love those clocks. With the swirling blur of skirt/cloth.

    2)I started a long response to your From Your Rainy Window post, the one about ease, not choosing it, etc. And then I found I wasn't saying what I wanted to be saying. So I deleted & figured I'd get back to it. But I never have... So I at least wanted you to know that I was moved & my thoughts were super-provoked by that post. I loved thinking about all you had to say & admired the way you said it.

    3) A little over a month ago I got my copy of the Vine with your goodbye sign off as editor. And it made me realize how much I missed hearing/reading your voice. Really really. I'll be very happy to have these 365 photos, but I'll also be so glad for whatever words might come along.

    I would love to know more of how it is over there. And everything else you-related.

    Miss you!
