I did it! I completed my SiPgoes52 project.
There are still some upcoming photos to clean up in Photoshop. Choices between alternate photos I need to make. Some upcoming words for which I want to take more photos, hoping a better one will come up. Some older words I want to revisit.
But I’m now sure that I’ve got at least one photo to post for each of the remaining words.
But it’s not over!
I’m done (or almost done) taking photos for SiPgoes52. But it doesn’t mean the project is over. Taking and posting the last photo is not the end.
All my photos are not equally good. Some would gain to be remade. Some are related to words that don’t inspire me. SiPgoes52 is for me the basis for more. A basis that needs to be filtered out and reduced to a smaller number.
I have 52 photos around a theme: human values. Out of these, I want to find the ones that go together. The ones that matter. The ones that deeply match my vision.
Now I will spend time looking at my picture. I need to write
Making something out of SiPgoes52
SiPgoes52 is also not over yet because I want to create something out of my photos.
I don’t know yet what I will make. But now that there is no more pressure for me to take pictures, I will focus on organizing my photos. Then I’m sure will find out.
If you have participated in SiPgoes52, I can only encourage you to create something out of your photos. No matter whether you took a picture for each word or not. Maybe you started at the beginning and stopped halfway through. Or started late. Or kept on taking pictures throughout the year but missed a couple of words. All those are fine.
And the good news is that it’s possible to make something out of your photos, no matter whether you have 52 images or not.
Even if SiPgoes52 is not over yet, we have already started thinking about the future. Next year, we will continue with a sequel project… SiPgoes53.
This time it won’t be 52 words but 52 names. Names of famous and inspiring people. People who have shaped humanity. As soon as we have finalized our list of names, we will share it alongside the planned schedule.
If you participated this year, be sure to come and discuss the remaining few words… Or simply share your experience from the past year.
