Photo of the Week Project

Well, I am now well over the half way mark in my Photo of the Week project for 2014. Though I did not take a new photo every week, I did find it take the majority of images over the course of the year. I’ve found the whole experience personally fulfilling and it’s great to share images with friends and hear their comments and reactions. In fact, it is often the images that I might not like that much myself that gain most attention with viewers. This year has been a pretty busy one for me and once I’m over the next couple of weeks, I hope to continue some other photo projects that I’ve had in the pipeline for a while now. I won’t give it all away now, but I can say that I’ll be publishing some photo essays and exhibiting in a location to be confirmed in the coming months. For more on the POTW project, go to the “My Work” section. Slán go foill, Shane
