Oh, May.

You were a great month, but I fear my 365 project doesn't reflect this.

After making solemn promises to "must try harder" in April, I failed at the first hurdle and didn't upload a single photo until fairly recently and then there were four days in London when I didn't get my camera out of it's case and I had to revert to using Instagram photos. Oh the shame. I have excuses, of course, (work, a friend's visit, trips to UK and Italy, an earthquake, blah blah blah) but it's just not good enough.

However, amidst the chaos and lack of commitment I did take some nice photos - photos that are technically strong but also have significance to me personally and the experiences I've had this month.

Here are my favourites. So I guess it's up to you June. You are going to have to help me prove that I am still committed to this project and that it will benefit me not burden me as it has sometimes felt.

I wonder if anyone else feels pressure from something they actively chose to do? It's normal, isn't it. Isn't it?
