100 Things: 1/100

Right around the time of my birthday, I set myself two challenges.  One of them was to buy Nothing New for a whole year, with a few exceptions. The other was to make 100 things by the end of August. 
Initially, I thought that it would be a piece of cake--I could make something every day, even just something little, but honestly, I have had a hard time getting it off the ground. Initially, I thought that on our trip to Idaho, I would have a lot of opportunities to take some great photos, and could work on finding my 'photographer's voice' again. Well, most of those photos are on film, and the digital ones were not what I was expecting. I realized that perhaps I am simply not a 'photographer' in the artistic sense anymore. I am not as inspired to capture moments in time as I once was, and I have to be okay with that. 

However, I do love this little photograph--taken of an old barn outside of Haines, Oregon.

So, I give you, 100 Things: 1/100

I have been very creatively inspired lately, but it's all been in my head. I've been having a difficult time getting out of my mind and into 'making mode'. Soon, though. Soon!



  1. Love this little project.
    Love that little barn.
    There's a season for everything, including photography.

  2. It was a really fun trip, and I got to see tons of old, broken down barns. What's funny is when we were photographing this one, the rancher pulled up and we were able to talk to him about it. He mentioned that it's probably the most photographed barn in Oregon, and when I think about it, I'm sure I've seen it on postcards. Still, it's the most beautiful of all the ones we saw!
