Silhouettes & Shadows

"A long time ago in ancient Greece, there was a young boy who fell in love with a young girl from another country.

One day word came that the young girl would have to go home.

So on their last night together he traced the outline of his lovers shadow, so that he could always remember how she looked on the very last moments they were ever to be together."

A Man Walks into a Room

"When a man walks into a room, he brings his whole life with him.

He has a million reasons for being anywhere, just ask him.
If you listen, he'll tell you how he got there.

How he forgot where he was going, and that he woke up.
If you listen, he'll tell you about the time he thought he was an angel or dreamt of being perfect.
And then he'll smile with wisdom, content that he realized the world isn't perfect.
We're flawed, because we want so much more.
We're ruined, because we get these things, and wish for what we had."

Project 365

Over a year ago I realised that I was picking up my camera less and less on a regular basis, with the exception of paid shoots.
This was a concern to me, as when I first started out in photography I used to travel practically everywhere with my camera near by. [ almost an extention to my one arm! :) ]
I decided to embark on a journey.

And what a journery it was! Project 365 started on February 1st, 2010 and lasted ........... well you guessed it - 365 days! [ pat yourself if you got that one before I mentioned its duration! ;) ]

There were tough times of course - Lets back up a bit -

Project 365 would be me, Lee Folkard, taking and uploading a picture per day for 365 days. Any picture would do.

There were tough times and there were good times. TImes I'd gotten home at 23:45 and had 15 minutes to take the picture and upload it onto the computer and get it online. Weekends away when I had to haul the laptop with me to get my picture online. Load-shedding, and Internet issues - But all in all it was an amazing success!

A group is available on facebook with each days pictures. Feel free to check it out and to leave a comment.

Looking back through all the pictures I can get a sense of achievement as I see pictures representing different ventures and frontiers passed by over the 365 days. Moments in time frozen to be looked back and recalled.

Photography. You gotta love it ;)
