As the days went on, I continued shooting at every opportunity, never missing a day. I started to develop themes in my shooting, which was very informative, as it helped define for myself what kind of photographer I am. In subjects, I tend towards landscape, nature, architecture (well, buildings... old, storied buildings) and abstracts. I think I strive for some level of abstraction in almost all my shooting.
So 365 days has become 400, 500 is in my sights come May 16. The challenge has become much easier, much more focused. I have a much better idea of who I am as photographer now than I did 400 days ago. I carry my cameras wherever I go. I am rewarded by the challenge of searching out new photo subjects, by the mechanics of composing and shooting each frame. I am rewarded by each day in the darkroom, each finished print hanging to dry.
I am looking forward to day 500, but even more, I am looking forward to tomorrow.
