Day 365 – The Last One and a Big Huzzah

It Bustles

Day 365

Finis by Dorothy Parker

Now it’s over, and now it’s done;
Why does everything look the same?
Just as bright, the unheeding sun, —
Can’t it see that the parting came?
People hurry and work and swear,
Laugh and grumble and die and wed,
Ponder what they will eat and wear, —
Don’t they know that our love is dead?

Just as busy, the crowded street;
Cars and wagons go rolling on,
Children chuckle, and lovers meet, —
Don’t they know that our love is gone?
No one pauses to pay a tear;
None walks slow, for the love that’s through, —
I might mention, my recent dear,
I’ve reverted to normal, too.

At long last, it is finished.  I finished where I started as planned from the very first shot.  And I am stunned at how the quality of my shooting has improved.  I never realized I had so much to learn.
And a good riddance to this 365…

First shot and final shot. What a difference a year makes….

  1. You definitely improved, a lot!
    I gotta say that I love your project, you are so inspiring Cyndi!
    Remember that some day I told you “I0’m not really into flower shots” but seeing yours changed my mind; I’ve loved every single photo that you have taken and all the things you have written.
    I’m gonna miss this, but I’m sure we will keep in touch.
    Best wishes, and congrats!

    • I do remember that day, Pablo – and your flower shots are all so amazing. Like you, I have loved EVERY shot you have taken. Thank you so much for taking this journey with me.
      Yeah…. I went out a took a few shots tonight. I couldn’t stop myself. But at least I didn’t feel like I HAD to!

  2. Congratulations on completing your project! I’ve loved following along on your journey and hope you will continue to post so we can keep up with you! I LOVE your final shot. Amazing!

    • And that very first shot? It took me over a half hour to edit it into a “postable” condition! The final one? About a minute and a half. If anything, I am grateful to this 365 for how it honed my skills.

  3. Wonderful last shot. 🙂

    Congratulations! I suspect you might find yourself missing this project from time to time. More than you might think you will. But I could be wrong.

  4. Now that I’ve made it to this post I miss you more!!! A year definitely makes a big difference, I cringe at some of my first shots (and even a couple from last week to be honest!). You’re photos are amazing and I hope that you will keep shooting

    • No need to miss me, Jennifer! I am going to continue to blog – just not on my 365. I am pondering a name for the page I am going to link to this one. I think I need to go take a short drive to mull this one over….

    • That last shot was planned at the time that I took the first shot – nothing like pre-planning, huh? Thanks for sticking with me through this – I have appreciated all of the support everyone has given me.

    • Thank you – It was a labor of love, but at the end, merely labor… I am happy to have it over with, and though I was told I would miss it, I really don’t! Thank you so much for taking the journey with me.
