December 2012

It feels surreal!! I did it! I took a picture every single day this year! And on top of that I blogged about it! Blogging was not my project but it became so essential to me… like a diary… I can look back and see my life in 2012 through pictures! And I think that is so cool!

I have to say that it wasn’t easy… I learned a lot about photography but that was never my goal… My goal was to accomplish something and I did it!

God showed up every single day even when I couldn’t see Him so clearly I knew in my heart He was there… It was like something between Him and I… Our project… I’m so glad I did this… I have so many memories now… I can pick any picture and I would have something to say…

What is also so interesting about this project is that I can count on my hands who I told about this… My parents don’t know, my sister doesn’t know, actually, my family doesn’t know… And is funny because I somehow made that my project as well… I did not want people that are to close to me to know because I did not want to be influenced my them… I did not want them to be so opinionated about places where I could shot or things that I should or shouldn’t shot. So, I made my way around many times… I took many pictures with them around without them knowing about it… I don’t plan to let them know… It was my project and I did it the way I wanted to…

But I did tell some friends… People that I knew I could tell… And to you, thank you!

I will not do another 365/366 project anytime soon… But next year I’ll have another blog where I’ll talk about my art and it is called “My art meets my life”. I’m not sure yet how it will go… but I’m so open to be more flexible and to go with the flow of my soul…

To all of you who followed me through 2012, my greatest appreciations! I did not have tons of followers but I ones I had made my so happy with the comments and the likes! I went through a lot this years and you were there with me! I travelled a lot, worked a lot and even moved back to my home country, kept the project a secret from my family, my camera broke and I still took a picture every day. Some days more meaningful than others but every day it was something… Something to remember…

I’ll miss it… This project was way more than just carrying a camera and taking pictures… It was about commitment, discipline, love, accomplishment, the felling that yes, I can do it!

Thank you my friends. Thank you my followers. And thank you my dear God… You showed me how much you love and care about me… Thank you…

See you next year!

Happy 2013 filled with happiness and blessings from God!

With love,

Camila


Day 366 – Last day

31_DEC

“… now my eyes have seen you.” Job 42:5b

(Wow! Last day! I did it!!! Couple days ago I was thinking about what picture I would take for my last day… Then this caught my attention 2 days ago when I was taking another picture. The tree growing horizontally made me think about a timeline… Then, yesterday I went downstairs and took some pictures of it but hopping that I could take it again today… And it happened! I think this picture represent this project for me. The trees on each side like the beginning and the end and in the middle, all that happened this year…  It was a cycle that ended, but also it brings me the feeling that I have way more to see and to live! And surely I have seen God through it all!)


Day 365 – Peace in God

30_DEC

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

 


Day 364 – Trust in God

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” John 14:1

 


Day 363 – From the tree

“Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights above.” Psalm 148:1

 


Day 362 – Hidden life

27_DEC

“I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you.” Psalms 139:7-12

(It is way to hot here in Brazil… I did not want to go out to take a picture today… So, I laid in my bed and saw my beautiful box that I brought with me with my stuff inside or I should say my life inside. I’m a secret person… It is difficult for me to verbalize and when I do I think people don’t understand… Anyways… I’ll open this box soon… and I’ll share about some stuff in 2013 on my new blog… The only one that knows it all is God… Nothing is hidden from Him.)

 


Day 361 – He sees us!

26_DEC

“You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” Psalms 139:15-16

(I’ve been wanting to take a picture of a baby for a quite long time… and today my little baby cousin Julia was born! I had the privilege to be there with my uncle and aunt! What a beautiful and blessed baby!!! What a great way to be reminded that God see us still…)
