Failed December In A Photo - What I've Learned From It?

Sunday, January 17, 2016

Hello ladies, 
I had this plan for December - to take a photo every day and do a photo diary cause it's been a long time since I've done one.
But of course things didn't turn out as planned and instead of sharing 31 photos with you, I'll be sharing the things I've learned from trying to take them.

  • I've learned that although December way quite an eventful month, I also spent a lot of time studying and working, which really isn't something worth capturing.
  • That finding something interesting enough/worth sharing every single day is kinda impossible and that I was worrying way too much about whether or not you'll find certain things interesting or not. I was actually forcing it a bit & stressing myself out, which only made me not want to take photos even more.
  • That most of the time I don't have the mentality or the patience to take a photo before eating or drinking something deliciously looking.
  • That if I don't write something down, I'll most likely forget about it. And yes, I didn't write 'take a photo every day' on my to-do list.
  • That I'm too lazy to carry around my DSLR and that the photos on my phone usually don't turn out the way I would want them.
  • That the only thing I photograph very regularly/way too often is my dog. So if you would like to see 31 photos of Daisy, that can easily happen.

  • That I'm more of a be in the moment person and that when something actually worth photographing is happening, I rather enjoy that moment in the present and not through a camera lens. I really believe that sometimes you miss those little things that matter the most, while you're busy trying to capture them on a photo.
  • That there are quite a few things I'm not ready to share on here, like my close family, especially my cousin's children, and even my friends. And that these are the people I hang out/take photos of the most. And in a way this doesn't make sense, cause I do post them on Snapchat, even Instagram sometimes, but that's just how I feel at the moment.
  • Speaking about Snapchat, I noticed that this is my favourite way to share the most random parts about my day. And I recently started doing it more often.
  • That although I do love having photos to look back to, I like the ones that have some-sort of a story behind them, something worth remembering. And honestly, I can't find that every day.
  • That I actually prefer how things turned out in the end and that I only regret not taking more photos while we we're at the seaside for New Year's, although I wouldn't share those on here anyway. I really think I'll cherish these few photos that I do have from December way more, especially the ones from Bled.

I recently found a quote on Pinterest that goes like this: The best nights are when you're having too much fun to take pictures. And I really agree with it. 
Don't get me wrong, I love having lots and lots of photos, and those drunken photo sessions with your friends are almost obligatory, but I also think that sometimes the best memories are those that can only be found in your mind. 

It's been a hot minute since I've done a more rambling post, so I hope you enjoyed reading this. I know we're  already half way through January, but I would love to know how was your December?

Sanja ♥
