Last year I started to do Project 365 but I fell by the wayside quite early, managing to only upload 21 photos in 34 days. This year, I started Project 365 again on January first, and fell by the wayside before I'd even got that far and it really bothered me.
On the basis that doing the same thing and expecting a different result leads to lunacy I decided that there was no point in shouting at my inner dustbins or beating myself up about it. So, on January 31st, I started over again.
While there may have been the odd day that I forgot until a few minutes past midnight, and that one day where I did something different for a good reason, I've stuck to it and am incredibly proud to have made it to 100 days.
It just reinforces the notion that if I really want to, I can do whatever I set my mind to. In an ideal world, we'd all believe that, but we don't live in an ideal world.
So I'm taking some time to acknowledge that taking a photo a day for 100 days is an achievement. Yes, I've lacked inspiration. No, every photo isn't a masterpiece, but that isn't (and hasn't been) the point of this exercise.
I've been creative and created something every day for 100 days. That's got to be worth celebrating.
So, to celebrate, I put together a desktop wallpaper and rather than just use it myself, I thought I'd share it. It's only available in one size - 1440 x 900 - but shouldn't look hideous at other resolutions.
If you desperately want this in another resolution, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
Last but not lease, I owe huge thanks to everyone who's left a comment or encouraged me to keep going via twitter. It really has helped when the motivation has taken a dip.
