On the Road to 50, I ran out of gas.
Before I even started my new project, where I planned to take a selfie each day for a year, I knew it was doomed. I hate photographing myself. I don't do "creative" under pressure. I had only a handful of ideas, and most of them involve better weather.
On Day 7 of my Road to 50 project, instead of capturing an image of myself, I went in a different direction: I removed the previous six photos from my Flickr album.
We will never speak of this project again.
Because I much prefer to be on the back-side of my camera, my next photo project will not have a single image of myself.
I still want to challenge myself, and I want to further overcome my general shyness (stop your snickering: I am shy!), so I'm going to start a project that I've been thinking about for a couple of months. A year of strangers.
Throughout the year, starting on March 31, I'm going to approach total strangers and ask them if I can take a photo of them. Each day, I will post a new face.
For now, here's the last selfie of my ill-fated project.
