project 101: 30 photos in 30 days

I enjoy taking photos for fun. I don’t possess any great talent. In fact, I don’t even own a fancy camera or pricey lens. I believe a truly good photographer can take an amazing photo with a cheap disposable. Thus, I continue working with the crap that I already have and cross my fingers that something great eventually develops.

A few years back I got wrapped up in doing the project: 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days. I highly recommend the project even though I never finished my own. One of my tasks to conquer was taking 30 images in 30 days. I started the project a few times and always failed after the first week. Then I decided to document in photos our IVF process. My 30 day project, which started in January of 2007, turned into 53 days of images. After a few ups and downs we cycled in February of that year. It’s hard to believe it’s been two years this month.

When I look back now at those photos, I can look at any one of those 53 images and know exactly what was happening that day. That experience forever changed my life. We were fortunate to be successful upon our first cycle and were blessed with Graycen in October of that same year.

Some of those photos are probably not appropriate for this space but here go some of my favorite images that I think are acceptable to share. None are award winning but I still find them meaningful and beautiful.

As I mentioned, I never completed my list of 101 things. Only about 10 tasks ever got finished. Many are outdated now but I’m still plugging away at a few.

5. Have a baby.
13. Take a photo every day for one month.
