So here we go, starting the second year with a similar camera – Olympus µ-II – and the same film – Kentmere 400 – I used for the first roll of this project.
The difference of the camera is not only the color of the body, but also this one has a fixed focus length lens instead of a zoom lens. Those who know me a bit longer, know that I always prefer the fixed focus length lenses.
I wasn’t sure if I should continue this challenge or not, and if I’ll do, how. There are some ideas, but nothing is fixed yet. You cannot plan creativity and fun. And that’s what this challenge is still about – fun.
Believe me, it is fun, though sometimes I had to fight myself to go on, but after every frame I filled, I felt good. Yes it feels good to keep a thing going, day by day, even if you feel down and sad, or if you are sick. Subjects for photos are all around, you just have to look. I always said, this challenge is not about creating art or something like that. So let’s have fun.
