Looking Back at Look Down

So, as per usual, now that we've gotten some distance from the photo a day project, it's time to do a critique. What worked? What didn't?

Well, for starters, I think the biggest challenge of this project was that I have a tendency to choose a theme that involves having to deal with the massive unpredictability of the weather. My bad.

For those the have follwed my blog, or in the very least looked at more than this project, you would have notice that I am very comfortable with repeated shapes, lines, etc. Certainly this is an apt result about seeing art in the everyday, but because it is something that I am already constantly on the lookout for, it is as my friend in the army life reminds me, it is simply center of mass. It's acceptable, buy it's not pushing development or really challenging me to do better.

Then you look at Day 11 and you see something completely different. While, yes, this was simply trash on the ground, it made for something altogether unique, which I think continued in Day 25 and Day 30. These are the images that are challenging the status quo, pushing to move us above center of mass. Based on the distribution, we still need a lot of work to fully integrate this way of seeing, but as long as we keep pushing and challenging ourselves, it'll happen.

Look Down: Day 31

Yes, I know it's late. Give me a break. I don't have a Tauntaun.
