52 Week Project - Weeks 4-9

What I'm learning from my 52 week project:  it's possible to make a small project like taking one picture a week into something onerous.  I've learned that being constrained by a weekly theme can feel both liberating and restrictive.  I've learned that my eye, when left to itself, has a certain darkness, an uneasiness and shadows around the edges, even when I shoot with the utmost love and happiness.  I have learned that there is a takeaway from shooting something boring and mundane.  I have reminded myself how much I love my work and how easily I can get lost in taking a simple photo once a week.
