Day 365 ~ me

So ... here it is - the end of the first 365 days of Olya's world.

What started as an homage to the creativity of the two people that really epitomized creativity for me (my dad and my sister), I find that the process has brought me full circle - back to me.

A question I had at the beginning of this process was - will I be able to fill a void that was becoming bigger and bigger? Yes, the hole is closing somewhat...
but I have learned it will never be whole.

As I give you the last picture of this first year,
I am in the shower -truly myself, in transit, moving
towards the next year of journeys yet to be discovered.

I have decided to put some parameters around my daily journal practice. I will post only "one" photo per day. An editing task ,as some of my friends know, is a difficult one for me.

And, then some new features:
  • Photog of the Month which will be the first Saturday of the month. Through Olya's Urban Journal- I have met some truly amazing photographers. My network has grown to include a band of renegade NYC urban explorers to international photographers who love rust (Pia) and trees (Tepi) as much I do, to groups on Facebook that inspire me on a daily basis! The first" Photog of the Month" will be my friend and mentor Brian Dorfmann - I have know him since I was 14. Stay tuned - you may be next.
  • Food or Drink of the Week - which will be head, by none other than, Aimee Becker - a new friend, although a friend it seems that I have known forever. Her enthusiasm for photography  - food/drink rivals no other, kind of like my own love for these things. Look for this to happen on Mondays of each week.
  • Gallery or Museum of the Week - that I have visited that week.  I love gallery hopping and checking out the museums of NYC and if I can - I will provide photographs. Look for this every Sunday.

As always, comments are welcome - thank you everyone for your support and love!
My year has been filled with pure joy because of you .... 

with love, olya
