Ebb and flow is a common theme around these parts but its one that tends to grab and hold my attention. Maybe it has something to do with my elemental affinity with water. Maybe it's not all that unusual for the wakeful living individual to notice cycles. I often find I must notice them, and speak/write/or ponder them. At the center of ebb and flow is balance - that ever illusive mistress.
The moment project that my dear friend Cory and I started a couple of years back ended (for me) about a year ago. At the end I was overwhelmed and burned out on the project, and in my life. I needed to retreat. Now, with things feeling calmer in my life, more stable and rhythmic, I find I'm looking for a little more flow when it comes to connecting with other artists and photographers. And I'm need a lot more flow in connecting with my camera, my photographer self.
That being the case, I decided to do another moment project with a bit of a different spin. Each week, in the coming new year, I will shoot a photo of what I'm doing, or where I am, or what I'm thinking, etc. The first week I will shoot at 8:00 am, on any day I choose. In the second week I will shoot at 8:15am, on any day I choose. And so on.
My first hope is to make it to 52 weeks, shooting through 13 hours of the clock, from 8am to 9pm, in 15 minuet weekly increments.
My second hope would be that others would join me (in a flickr group and/or a joint blog) just as before, to amass a portrait of our lives, through the hours of the clock, 15 minuets at a time.
I will share my journey here for now. If anyone is interested in joining me feel free to leave me a message here or flickr message me. The adventure begins On the first of January 2011. =0)
