THIS IS PROJECT 365.
I photograph life as it unfolds, and share too much with you, every day, for 365 days.

So life has been crazy all over the place lately. I felt like I needed to take a step back - to lighten my load. So I took a step back with my project 365 and decided to be okay with cheating during the summer months via using my cell phone for images. During the summer we spend 75% of our days in the water - either the pool or the ocean. Neither place is great for a camera. Then add three young kids and it's pure chaos. I've also felt an overwhelming need to be more present instead of stressing about my camera. And I wanted to capture a real version of our summer - that largely exists in the water. By using my phone I didn't raise the risk of ruining my camera at the beach - or yelling at my kids that they would ruin my camera while at the beach. I didn't have to worry about uploading and clearing memory cards, or editing, or charging my battery constantly. I had to let go of a little control - but I was still capturing moments - loving my kids - and having my images in line to eventually put into an album at the end of the year. So all was well in 365 land.

Then we went to the inlet. And I caught my one year old playing with my phone by holding it under water. Needless to say my phone is no more. And - incidentally - all of my pictures are also no more.

First my inner OCD was in total freak out mode. And while I'd still love to magically have all of the images lost - in the big scheme of things - it's sooo not a big deal.  And I'm ready to pick up my camera for 365 again. So this is a rather uneventful 365 in the way of writing and images - but here is the little I did use my camera for this month (and a few images that I pulled off of Instagram):
