This ends my Wednesday series of images of the same kind of subject.
As 2021 was wrapping up, I wanted to shake up the kinds of posts I ran each weekday. I had fallen into a pattern where certain kinds of posts tended to run on certain days. There wasn’t anything wrong with the pattern, I had just grown a little weary of it.
This Wednesday series was one change I made. I wasn’t sure how long I would be able to keep it up. But I have more than 22,000 photos on Flickr, and I felt sure I’d be able to find new subjects for a while.
Once I started thinking of the subjects I commonly photograph, they came to me in a rush. You might be surprised to learn that I created all of the posts in this series by the end of April this year. I’m writing these words in May.
I was surprised by how many common subjects I’ve photographed! But that still is a finite number. I might have been able to come up with a few more, spilling into next year. But it seemed right somehow to stop at 52: one for each week of the year.
If you’ve followed this series closely, you know that I repeated several subjects. I had enough photos of barns, headlights, churches, chalkboard signs (as here!) and a few other things that I broke those subjects into two posts. So while the series ran 52 weeks, there are only 40-something subjects.
It was fun to put this series together. Based on the feedback I’ve received from you, you’ve enjoyed it a lot, too. Thank you!
