I’m almost at the end of my 365 day challenge of posting one image from each of my daily walks for an entire year.
It was a daunting challenge and one I didn’t exactly meet. I was supposed to walk every day, and that didn’t always happen. And apparently I’ve lost about 2 weeks along the way. My Facebook memories said I was posting day 1 a year ago, and here I have 11 more days to go until I get to day 365.
Still it was fun, and I definitely did more walking than I might have without the challenge. Even if some of it was after dinner in a last ditch effort to get a walk in and find something interesting to shoot before the light slipped away.
I copied each photo from my Facebook post to an image file, and periodically I’ve set that up as a slideshow and looked at all of them again. It takes more than half an hour to move through them all now.
The collection provides a wonderful reference to my year, reminding me of all the wonderful places I’ve been, all the great sights I’ve seen.
OK, some of the images aren’t that good, but there are many I’m proud of. And I wonder if I could choose the ten best images of this past 365 days.
I clicked through the file tonight, writing down the numbers of any shot that made me smile, that made me go back for a second look, the shots that are becoming my favorites.
So far I have thirty-one of them. And I have eleven days to go.
I don’t know if I can narrow it down to just ten. And would they be my favorites because the image was good, or because it reminded me of a favorite place or time?
The images in this post might or might not be on my favorites list. I’ll try to get it down to ten after the project is a wrap.
But I don’t know that I can.
