WEEK 0/52 - Welcome Back
October 3, 2012
Welcome back for two things:
1) Of course, my lovely camera back last Saturday from Nikon, repaired with a new exterior body, flash bulb and display screen and 2) Myself
It's been way too long. I'm way behind on my readings and even while acknowledging the other million things which would be wise to prioritize right now, I can't seem to get myself to pick up my slack and get to it.
The past few months have had me thinking about motivation - clearly something that has been inconsistent for me for quite a while.
I keep telling myself I'll do this, I'll do that, and when I look back, I realize that I haven't really been able to achieve much at all for the past year. Was it just that I was setting way too ambitious goals? Or was I just using that as an excuse to hopelessly try and comfort myself from the guilt for my laziness?
I've always wanted to start a project 365, but I have never been able to get to it. So much has happened, so many excuses have been made, and somewhere in between that, it felt like I've lost who I was.
It's been almost a month that I've started using Instagram. It's helped me reconnect with the ideals of a "daily update" while keeping the basic capture edit upload routine, but it just feels like something's missing. I'm not sure if it's the phone photographic experience (which the photos are still great like the one that has been taken above) but I've never really liked touch screen photography because it feels so abstract. It also feels so very different from how uploading pictures on Flickr used to make me feel. Perhaps, it's the uploading pictures not for the sake of social networking, but purely for photography in itself. I'm not sure, but I continuously find myself standing outside peering through the door of this journey - what I expect to be a serendipitous pursuit of self identity - and maybe it's time to walk through to just try and see where it brings me.
So this is where I bring myself to start up a project 52 - a photo a week (I'm thinking every Friday)- in hopes, to bring back a motivated, passionate, and happier me.
Who needs the Genius Bar? This 1st gen iPod touch came to me with a broken screen. It also wouldn't boot.
Someone had previously tried to open the case and in doing so, tore a resistor from the main logic board.
I replaced the screen, soldered the nearly invisible resistor back on the board and reassembled with a new back plate. It now works good as new.
