In the past few months I had travelled a lot and had some great memories to cherish for lifetime.. But soon the memories were like forgotten. I love playing around with my photos which are not just some moments captured to remember but they are memories to be cherished. I felt that the happy moments which have past need to be some kind of organised and preserved..
I have been trying to figure out a simple strategy for myself relating to do a year long project where I am gonna document my life which i want to re-live.I’m focusing on my daily life as a family. I’m looking at this project as a chance to tell small stories (the small stories that are essentially the big ones when you see them all together). I want to capture little details, conversations, memories.And the next year, 2012 being the last year of my school life I don’t want to forget any of the memories..
Photos & words & the stuff of life is what I am looking to collect and place inside this album.I am not stressing about taking a photo everyday.I am cool with, and looking forward to, adding in other pieces of life: notes, lists, mail,email, etc. Some weeks will be all photos and other weeks will be a mixture of the two.Think the thing that I am really appreciating about this project right now is that it feels laid back. It feels possible and fun.I am not trying to document every little thing. I am trying to capture the essence of the ways in which we live our lives from day to day. Our normal.
If you aren’t already playing along with similar kind of project it’s never to late to begin. There’s no rule that says you need to begin in January.
