The Seamstress {52/52}

I was reluctant to begin this last project because part of me wasn't ready to let go of this journey. The truth is . . . I was afraid and thoughts of uncertainty began to fill my head. It's a weird feeling to accomplish a big goal like this. It's not something I can honestly say I have ever done before. I'm notorious for flaking out and quitting, so I thought that I would be feeling pride and accomplishment when I finally finished what I started, but instead I feel empty and lost. Where do I go from here? What's next? But, maybe I'm not meant to know the answer to these questions. Maybe that's part of the journey. So perhaps its best not to dwell on it too much and just wait to see where life takes me.

BEFORE SHOT

I decided a long time ago that the last image should be something spectacular. A grand ending to this year long story. But the inspiration for that never really came together. Instead, it felt right to end my 52 week journey with a continuation. It's not uncommon for one project to inspire another and in this case, my last image (The Dressmaker) has inspired a mini series. I loved the beautifully eerie feel to it and wanted to continue that feeling into this piece. And if everything works out the way I hope, I'll have two more images to share, completing this new four piece series that I'm tentatively calling "Mannequin Madness." Beyond that, I don't know what I'll create or if I'll even be inspired to continue in this direction. I guess only time will tell . . .

Thank you again for taking the time to follow my journey and read my blog posts. It has meant so much to me to have a wonderful community of support behind this project. Sending lots of love and best wishes to everyone. ~ Daniella
