iPhone diary comes to an end..
Well, here it is; the last entry for this diary. One long year in the making it feels quite an achievement to have completed it. During the past twelve months there have been times that I wondered if I would be able to complete it, work commitments, ill health and bad weather have all played their parts in testing my will but I refused to be beaten!
In the beginning I wanted to see if I could find the discipline to take 365 daily images of sufficient interest to warrant a blog post. As the diary went on the parameters widened to encompass social documentary and artistic endeavours which have inspired me for future projects.
As pleased as I am that I managed to write over 365 entries (see retro and food sections) I think the really pleasing thing is the recording of an ordinary life in an extraordinary world and how, I wonder these thoughts and images will look in the years to follow. I would like to thank everyone who has followed my journey and shared their thoughts along the way.
Needless to say I shall be easing up a little now, I hope to share some projects I have in the pipeline with you so more of that in due course.
So, my final image. A plate of fish and chips. There’s a thousand memories within this image. It begins with my childhood and a place I visited with my family and ends with my brother and I going back in our forties. Many of the entries reflect my childhood, family and the times I have spent with my brother in particular. Without him the diary would never have lasted.
