Project 365 | 032-45

Oh boy, am I ever behind on posts right now. I spent a week in Mexico this month and didn't spend much time on the computer while I was there. I got back this past Monday, not even a week ago, and since then I've been telling myself that I can't catch up on blog posts until all of my DSLR photos from my vacation are edited and uploaded. For a variety of reasons, that took until this evening. So now here I am, trying to catch up on posts. These in particular are posts I don't want to get behind on, because it can snowball quickly, I'm sure.

On that note: more soon! And my trip was wonderful. Everything I'd hoped it would be. I will share some of my favorite images on here soon. You also get to see a few below, but they're iPhone shots, so they're not quite the same. I'm happy to be back and have had a great week and a great weekend, so life is actually feeling pretty darn good right now. I'm trying to get back into some good habits, which should hopefully help things stay that way.

Project 365 | 015-031

I can tell I'm starting to get up in my head about photos sometimes, in the second half of January. Things like -- I get worked up about taking a photo, because what if it's not good enough or something? As if I know what not good enough even is? As if there's actually a standard? I'm fully aware of these types of thought patterns, so I've tried to relax and let things happen naturally, without any needless fretting. After all -- this is supposed to be fun.

I really love going through these photos after two weeks, remembering the good stuff that happened. I can't believe it's February already. January is typically not my favorite month, but I made it through, and saw many neat things. I learned a lot. January has not been without merit. Each month and each day is worth living and finding the happiness and color in. Unless you're at a goth night -- then you're not supposed to seek out the color. And yet, I can argue, you can find so much color at goth nights! 

...I digress? 

More on that later? 

ANYWAY. Here are my shots from the latter half of January:

Jan. 15th: baby tortoises, best thing ever at the East Bay Vivarium // Jan. 16th: Proxy SF, Hayes Valley, San Francisco
