Well, I did it. Thousand days in a row. One photo every single day for a thousand days. That's around 9% of my life (12% if I count my first 365 project I did before creating tookapic). It sounds crazy. Few years ago I'd say - impossible.
Today? I'd say - piece of cake! I'm going for 10,000!
Thousand days is not that much. Even though when I browse my photos I see how much changed. How I changed. How my friends and relatives changed. How my life changed - thousand days still felt like a brief moment.
I learned that it doesn't matter what camera you have with you. What matters is that you take photos with it. An outdated compact camera that you actually use is better than a high-end DSLR that's gathering dust lying on the shelf.
I learned it takes patience to learn and do awesome things. If I wanted to learn anything new - I'd just apply the same rules that I apply to my 365 project. One piece at a time. Every day. No breaks. No excuses.
I want to thank you all for being part of this community. We passed 365.000 photos few weeks ago. That's a thousand years worth of photos. Even with my poor management skills, together we achieved something amazing.
I want to thank @megiz, my wife. For her patience. For her support. For understanding my need for taking photos. I want to thank her for some amazing photo ideas she gave me. What an awesome wife I have!
I want to thank all the Heroes that support the community with their wallets every month. There's more than 100 of you awesome people.
I want to thank @bonzai for maintaining the whole site. Awesome work! @kazziz & @abladzik for helping with our Instagram feed. Thanks to @ianprince for talking to me about tookapic and for few great ideas on how to run it.
Thank you all! And see you tomorrow!
