Instax-A-Day, Year in Review

Posted in on growing up, on photography by Allie on January 1, 2012

Well, 2011 is done, and so is the first year of Instax-A-Day. I did it! 365 days, 1 instax a day, no do overs. (And no minimal cheating!)  It’s really an interesting thing to take a picture a day. I remember something specific about every single one of the photos—sometimes where we were, sometimes exactly what we were doing, and almost always what emotion I was trying to document. I think I’m going to keep the project going (though it is expensive), but this year there won’t be a specific theme. I’m looking forward to taking pictures of something else, frankly. Should the project fall by the wayside, I will definitely come back to it for the same year of duckling’s life. It’s a good year to document day-by-day.

Anyway, Happy New Year. And for your viewing pleasure—the whole of Instax-A-Day for 2011.

    There were lots of laughs and a few tears here, watching that. I’m so lucky to be a small part of this little man’s life.

    beautiful!! i bet you cried when you watched it. it is a beautiful thing, all the day to day moments with little,growing people. you really captured the essence of that, the day to day that slowly transforms as the seasons change, as the toddler and parents change and grow. the change is subtle, but profound.
