Blog Guelph: Forty Nine (STOP!)


Forty Nine (STOP!), originally uploaded by Mr Mikey Mike.

3. My problem, besides being shy, is the committment. Every day you have to take a photo. Are there days you just want to give up, and how do you stay motivated? (I noticed there is a mini challenge spreadsheet in the 365 group on flickr.)

What a great spreadsheet! I’m definitely going to steal ideas from it.

There have been quite a few days where I’ve thought about giving up, but I’ve seen many Flickr contacts start this project and never finish, and I’m just too stubborn let that happen. A lot of the time my motivation simply comes down to a fear of failure, and it’s those days where I simply pick up the camera and snap the shutter, just to get a shot. As my wife says, “they don’t all have to be masterpieces.” Fifty is a good example of this. As is Nineteen and Twenty Nine.
