The End of the Beginning: 365/365

"Devote yourself to 
an idea. 
Go make it happen. 
Struggle on it. 
Overcome your fears.
Smile. Don't you forget:
This is your dream."

I did it! I did 365 self portraits!

 I don't even know what I am feeling right now. My emotions are so mixed up. I am happy, and I want to jump around shouting and laughing. Then the other half of me is sad, because this journey is over. 
This challenge has changed me, in my character and my ability in photography. I have grown so much in both. I have had my ups and downs through it all.
I remember in the beginning I would cry out of frustration when my photo did not come out right. I would also get stressed out every day. Then I seemed to move on from that and stopped stressing, but I became so relaxed I didn't really care if I missed a day. I took a long time to get through that, but than I decided enough was enough and I had to stick to it every day and just do it. No matter if the picture was not exactly how I wanted it, or if the last thing I wanted to do was take a picture. 
I am happy to say, that I am proud of myself. I did the challenge. I overcame a lot. I laughed, danced around when the picture was great, cried, sometimes all I wanted to do was scream. I managed though. 
I wish it would never end. But I feel the time is right for something new to start. The challenge took me places I would never dream of. My new door is opening, and now this one is closed, and it's time for me to start new adventures.

I want to say thank you to everyone that has supported me through this project. The encouragement and comments I got kept me going and kept me wanting to do better. 

All my love, 
Paige :)

its done. 

Blogger is being weird and making this picture look out of focus. I have waited so long to go into this pool. It is probably on of my favourite places on the whole farm. I don't know why I never used it sooner. Oh gosh, I managed to drop my remote into the pool. It sunk right to the bottom and into the mud. I nearly had a heart attack. I managed to find it though, thank goodness.

All that glitters is not gold.

I am so so happy with how this one came out. When I first started my self portraits I tried a glitter one, but it was a disaster and I absolutely hate the picture. I have wanted to retry it for a long time, and I thought best do it now before I finish. Also if you ever attempt to put glitter dust on your face try not get it in your eyes, or you will feel like you are blind. Trust me, not a nice experience.

So am not far from the end now. Very exciting! At the moment I have been struggling with my creativity, which has sent me into a panic, because I feel I am coming to an end and I want my pictures to be amazing. It’s something though that I can’t force myself to do, especially when I am on a bit of low with my creativity.  This weekend I am going to be away. I have decided not to take any pictures while I am away, because I will only be able to get quick pictures in, and I really don’t want that on my last few pictures. So, I will be extending my pictures on two of three days from my original deadline.
