Project has ended

I’m sure people have noticed I haven’t posted any new photos to my project for a couple of months. I hate to admit, but I got to the point where I wasn’t happy with the images I was creating, which led to me not wanting to take any photos. Feels like what I think “writers block” feels like. I suppose most artists hit a hump like this, but it still doesn’t feel very good. Anyway, I’ve decided to stop the project instead of trying to force it forward. Thank you to those of you who checked the new images each week and especially thank you to those who provided feedback. Maybe next year I’ll work on a 12 month project. Either that, or I will just take photos and post them as I see fit. Again, thank you for joining me on my journey and I’m sorry to you, the viewers, and myself, for not reaching my goal of a full 52 weeks.

My nephew was born on March 7th at 6:45 am with a heart condition called Shone’s Syndrome. It’s been hard to focus on, and think about my photography project this week. I did take some non-HDR images of him and his mom (my sister-in-law). Since these are non-HDR….and the reason behind my distraction for the week, I thought I’d post them separately.

If you want to follow Aspen’s progress and story, we have a Facebook page created where we will be posting updates and images, and where others can send messages of healing and support to the family. The page can be found at: Aspen Hawk

Updated Gallery view

Since I like adding a gallery of my secondary images for the week, I decided to try out a slide show style gallery. Go to any of the weeks and click on one of the images in the gallery displayed a the bottom of the page. The images will then display in a slide show style view that allows you to click-through and make comments. Let me know what you think. I may switch it back if people don’t like it. At the moment, I like the look.
