Just me and a little bit about the project
This last year of my thirties I would be lying if I said I didn't care that forty was right around the corner. To me forty meant old, boring, middle aged and all of that less than fun stuff. It meant mid-aged spread and needing to dress like an adult lest you look like that fool in midlife crisis mode.
Two days from now, not even as it's night while I write this, I turn 40. Friday, January 6. Rather than retreat, I thought it would be fun to do a self portrait project and document it. I also have a goal to take more pictures so these work well together.
My thirties have been good to me. I've upgraded my day job twice, taking on a whole new career and I rediscovered photography and now am selling photographs, have been published in an indie art magazine and have my work going in swag bags at the gift lounge before the Academy Awards (Oscars). I can only begin to dream what opportunities this next decade will bring.
So I'd be honored if you join me through this year. And if you have your own 52 week project or 365 project, self portraits or not, let me know as I'd love to keep tabs on your work. I also hope to add some links to other photo projects.
To conclude, Happy New Year and may 2012 be a fantastic year for everyone!
