“I think here I will leave you. It has come to seem
there is no perfect ending.
Indeed, there are infinite endings.
Or perhaps, once one begins,
there are only endings.”
~ Louise Glück
Today is the last day of February which means February Photofest is once again complete. This is the 9th year of this project. I started it because I had done a Christmas Advent Calender during December two years in a row and whilst I like the month long photo project I didn’t feel like I had 31 Christmas/winter themed images in me again. I decided to have a month of images just to share some of the many that I had stored up in my edited but unpublished folder. I never actually expected any other bloggers to join in with me and so was stunned when that happened and over the years has continued to do so.
If you go to the February Photofest page you will see all the previous years. There have been an amazing number of bloggers/photographers who have contributed to this project. 2020 was the year with most. There were 51 participants that year.
Blogging has changed over the last few years. Covid seemed to get people blogging but then as time went on it impacted how people viewed their world and what they wanted to do with their time. As a result many bloggers seemed to give up so I am delighted that this little project still attracts some amazing and talented folks who join in, either on their own blogs or on twitter.
I don’t know what the future holds for February Photofest but there will definitely be another one next year as that will be the 10th anniversary of this project and that seems like something to celebrate.
But for now, for 2023…. The End.
