Each year I promise myself I am going to do a photography project. Each year I usually bite off more than I can chew and sign on for a 365 project. Each year I fail miserably. And you know what? I am okay with that. It's okay to realize sometimes things are too much. It's okay to say, "I might be able to take a picture every day of the year, but some (if not most) of those images will sit on my hard drive, unedited, for a very very long time." It's also okay to eat chocolate chip cookies for breakfast (because chocolate).
For 2016, I have decided to do things a little differently. I am dedicating this year's project to two things I love dearly-- our four kick-ass children and black + white photography. Each week, I will take at least one photo of each of our children. All of the images will be taken in front of the sliding glass door in our dining room (in our new home, I might add). Each image will vary in expression, accessories, posture, etc. What will remain consistent is the location, the monochrome, and the subjects.
This is a project I can handle- and I look forward to sharing it with you. How neat it will be see to see the growth and changes of these amazing little beings.
Welcome to my journey. Welcome to The Monochromatic Year.
