It started with a shot of a praying mantis, and finished with The End, 365 (+1) photos over the last 366 days. I was impressed with myself when I got to 30 days, surprised that I’d managed to stick it out at 100 days, awfully happy when I got to the half way point and a bit over it at Day 232. When it got to the final 30 days, I got slightly panicked that I wouldn’t be able to create the shots that I thought were important, that it couldn’t be the best project I could achieve. but in the end… I was happy.
I’ve now been challenged by a friend to do a 18,250 project, that equates to 50 years. I’d have to widen my criteria, and there is no way I’d post each and every photo, to be honest, while I have taken a photo every day for the last year, they do…
It’s October, and that means breast cancer awareness month. As part of my 365 project, I’m planning on doing 31 days of pink. This could be interesting because it’s not my favourite colour, but I think the research into breast cancer, prevention and cure is incredibly important. My mother surived breast cancer 14 years ago, she was lucky. I want to remove that element of luck, I don’t want my daughter, firends or myself to have to go through the treatment, let’s find out how to prevent it!
So, my small effort is to say that all sale proceeds for the month of pink will be donated to breast cancer research.
In the meantime there are lots of Breast Cancer charity events on, most are fun, some are serious, but they all seek to raise money for research.
