What a difference a year makes.
Despite falling behind on my 52 Weeks Flickr group contributions, I now have an entire year’s worth of self portraits in my 52 Weeks set. Sure, I’ve got 8 more to post, but time-wise there’s a year in there and it’s neat looking back and seeing if things have changed at all.
For example, there was my beardless phase, which I recently abandoned:
Not to mention the time I busted my head in Pennsylvania:
Yeah, good times.
I can also play the then-and-now game. The following picture was taken in March, shortly after I joined the Academy of Okinawan Karate:
Compare it to the picture I took just last night:
Higher rank, better gi, looking a little leaner… not too shabby.
A year goes by quick, but as we’re experiencing it, we don’t always see the big changes. I’m glad I participated. It’s kind of a pain to remember to take the pics and keep on top of dumping the pics to the computer and then uploading them to Flickr, but I’m tempted to do it again this year.
I really don’t know how the 365 Days folks do it, though. I’d almost have to cop out and use cell phone pics to post directly to Flickr. I’m sure my cellular provider would love me for that…
