Almost 2 years ago I began a daily photography project called a “365 day project”. This is where I take a photo every day pertaining to a given word prompt for that day and then post it to Instagram.
There were several group projects to choose from, but I ended up going with The Bethadilly Challenge.
Not only have I met some of the most amazing and talented people in this lovely group of photographers, but I have discovered more of myself than I ever thought I would. I started the project because I had this sense of wanting to awaken more to life … awaken to more of what I am and what I am capable of as a human being; how much more I could accept and love myself for who I am.
During this project there is at least one “self portrait” prompts per month … these were VERY strange to do at first. I mean, I’M not supposed to be in front of the camera!! Right?!? WRONG. Getting in front of the camera and not hiding behind it has been one of the most exhilarating things I have gotten over.
