False Start on Flickr.
I had a Kickstarter project fail a day or two ago, and I’m quite happy about it. I always want them to work, but when they don’t I remember how much work I don’t have to do. Always the slacker, never the dreamer.
A big plus side (to me) is that I started taking the photos before the project was done, so I have a few extra things to post here since I probably won’t do much shooting for a while.
Caroline and I wandered around her neighborhood during the funding period, sweating to death and being eaten by mosquitoes. But that just comes with the job, and you get over it rather quickly when you see all of the forgotten, quiet spots hidden in the corners of downtown. This shot was taken at a house that didn’t exist. There were stairs to the front yard, then nothing; just a plot of land where someone else gave up when things didn’t work out. There’s something to be said for starting a project then failing miserably. You never know what you’ll get from the little bit of effort you put in.
