One evening, while perusing through flickr, I stumbled on a group (365days) with a really cool concept: Shoot one self-portrait of yourself every day for a year. So here I am, in all of my self-edited glory. Outtakes of my daily shots, along with more commentary can be found on my blog: "TheDailyTim". Enjoy, and I welcome your comments...
Well...that's what I had intended. but a few unforeseen things took place. Firstly, I'm a perfectionist and I don't want to post any photos until I've had a chance to edit them on the computer so that they look their best. The images on my website are a reflection of me and my work, and consequently, I'm pretty picky about what I allow to be seen by the public. And then there's my obsessive-compulsive side that tells me that unless I have EVERY day represented, that the gallery and work is incomplete and not worth showing. The blog that was originally mentioned has not been updated for lack of time (I'm working 3 jobs right now) and I just don't like doing things half-baked. One of my kids dropped my camera in March and $350 and three weeks later, I got my camera back. I had been faithful to shoot an image of myself every day up until that point, but once the daily discipline was broken, it's hard to get back into the habit. But now, on my birthday, and with the year more than half over, I thought I'd at least allow those of you who are interested, a window into my year so far. So with apologies for its incompleteness, "here is me"... or "here am I"... or well, you get the idea. I look forward to your comments, critiques, and (hopefully) some compliments! (Oh, and for those of you who look at meta-data or scrutinize over the date each photo was taken, I've been going by the rule of a day being from when I wake up until I go to bed, not necessarily midnight to midnight.)
