Day 100 of Self Portrait Photography Project

Today marks the 100th day of my self portrait photography project.


This is where I take a self portrait every day and see what I learn.  Mostly the approach is as an artist and the challenge is in the spirit of the Flickr 365Days project – tackling the same subject over and over as an artist.

Some days it’s about recording CFS.  Some days it’s just about taking a stupid photo because I’m ill and I’m tired.  But mostly it’s exercising my creative brain.

100 days has snuck up on me!  Suddenly a year doesn’t seem so huge a goal.  I’ve taken a picture every day except one – so that’s a 99% success rate.  All being well that rate will increase from tomorrow onwards.

Had I realised it was a special day I might have tried something special with todays picture.  But I don’t suppose day 100 is much more special than day 101, or even day 34.

See thumbnails for all 100 photos …
