Daily Photo: 14/11/2013 - Grace [Portrait]

I'm struggling a bit with the new project. It's tough, and since I'm keeping it under wraps, I will only allude to what it is that I'm going through.  

I feel like a scrawny guy who decided on a whim to become a bodybuilder.  I just got myself a kickass gym bag, some new workout clothes, I have my routine planned out and gym membership paid for.  I get to the gym, and all I can bench is 20lbs.  I want to be able to bench 200, but I can only do 20.  I'm feeling pretty self conscious and I'm sure everyone is looking at me thinking "What the hell is that guy doing?".  

Today I (metaphorically) lifted 25lbs. I actually made some headway and I feel a lot better about the project.  The weather is also clearing up, and I am getting more opportunities to push on and be creative.  At any rate, here is today's Daily Photo, taken during a Big Shoot back in September:
