Today I’m finishing my year-long adventure with Tookapic. It was an interesting and needed experience for me and it showed me how much you can learn by doing something regularly. For 365 days I overcame reluctance, harder days, fatigue and lack of ideas, grabbing the camera every day and taking a picture. Once a very average photo, another time something I even liked.
During this year:
I started taking photos because it was supposed to be useful for a job, which I didn't get anyway
I started practicing yoga, which may one day become my life and professional path
I lost my beloved grandmother who suddenly passed away during the greatest restrictions caused by the coronavirus
I gained a future husband in the form of my favorite man in the world
I went back to running regularly and almost ran the first half-marathon - the coronavirus thwarted our plans
I took care of a few plants - I hope that thanks to them we will breathe a little easier
I found out what I like to photograph the most and it's nature, because at the same time it works like meditation on me
I've read a lot of great books
I fell in love with the mountains
I felt that I’m more expressive in pictures and movement than in words and the hours of sitting in front of a white sheet of Word.
I decided not to continue my Project 365. It was a great idea for a year to notice progress and make it a natural reflex to reach for the camera when I see something interesting. I’m grateful for the experience, but I was too frustrated by the days when I didn't have the strength and time to photograph. I deleted a lot of photos immediately after publication, because they were not suitable for reuse or viewing. Maybe this shows that only moments are really beautiful in life. In any case, I prefer to leave the house wanting to take pictures and come back with pictures that I’m proud to show off. You can follow me on my Instagram. Thank you for being with me here on Tookapic this year. See you somewhere in the world!
