Yesterday, all of a sudden, I realized that my monthly photo goal is complete!
#73 on my 101 in 1,001 list: Take a photo of the same place every month for a year.
Last summer I chose a spot on Summit Avenue that I run by fairly often, a place that's open enough to illustrate seasonal change. And as simple as it was, I loved this project. I loved snapping a photo once a month and seeing the changes over the course of one year.
The most consistent time period turned out to be the summer, with quite a bit of month-to-month contrast in almost every other season. One of my favorite pairs is December 2013 and January 2014, two photos I expected to look nearly identical: blue sky, bare tree branches, deep snow. I loved seeing that the footprint paths in the snow had changed over the month.
Here are my 12 photos, from August 2013 to July 2014:
I liked this project so much I think I'll keep it going for another year, in a different place.
