The challenges and frustrations of the 365 Project have made themselves apparent after a mere two weeks. Leaving for work early in the morning and coming home after dark has made it difficult to find time to actually take the photos. I long for daylight savings so I can leave the office while the sun is still out. I'm uninspired by my surroundings and unimpressed with the photos I've taken so far. This must be the photographer's version of writer's block.
I haven't yet figured out how to overcome these frustrations. I know the core problem is balance - finding little moments in the day that I can reserve just for myself. I have a few ideas that I hope will help. For one, I'm going to start taking my camera with me to work. I just purchased a brand new camera bag from Epiphanie (photos and review to come soon) so I have a stylish, work-appropriate bag to carry my camera around. And I intend to go out for a walk during my lunch hour when the weather is nice. (The problem is, sometimes I have to work during that lunch hour.) These are just baby steps but hopefully a few baby steps will lead to some grown-up strides.
What about you? How do you find little moments for yourself during those busy times?
