The other day I said to Anish, “the photo-a-day 365 project’s going well so far. It’s not felt difficult and I haven’t missed a single day yet”. It’s only been a month.
But in the spirit of remembering to recognise and be proud of my own accomplishments I’m giving myself a high-five for getting through the first month, while remaining motivated to see this thing through.
2015’s Project 365 is finished. I am 100% relieved. Two years in a row. It’s been tough. Before I begin lamenting over how the project’s gone, here’s a few highlights from December:
Wandering around Muharraq Souq on a quiet Sunday morning is probably one of my favourite places for photo ops.
The beginning of turning the balcony into a mini greenhouse. Home grow all the things! All the things that will grow in little pots that is.
So long November. You were quieter than October, of which I’m grateful for. After spending a lot of time travelling in October, November’s been very much about being back in the ol’ routine.
But because everything this month has been very much about being back in the old routine, photos this month have been a bit… boring.
Somehow I’ve managed to be in three different countries in the last month. I started October in London and ended it in Dubai. It didn’t even occur to me that this all happened in one month, as London already feels so long ago.
So with that in mind, I have to say, it’s been an eventful month. A long month. But in the good sense. In the sense that so much has happened in this one month that it feels like at least a couple of months have passed. I like these kinds of months.
While a lot of other 365-ers out there are taking photos of the beautiful Autumn weather, much of my September looked the same as my August, July, and June. That’s what Bahrain’s got going for it – consistency.
September saw me take part in my first Instagram Challenge – Tales of September, set up by Tori. Taking photos based off of prompts isn’t something I’m good at. Especially with me never leaving the home during work weeks. So it was challenging! Worth it. However, not sure I’ll be taking part in another for a while…
I’ve spent the last few days of September in London. This #emailgeek was very happy to have finally gone to her first Email Design Conference and have another go at this speaking malarkey! Excellent experience all around and would totally do it again.
And as I write this from my old home in the UK, I’m looking forward to be heading back to my real home in Bahrain on Sunday.
