In the autumn of 2013 Dmitry Golubnich found he was dissatisfied with his life and couldn't understand why, following a visit to his hometown and some soul searching he challenged himself to find at least 1 thing to be happy about for 100 consecutive days. To increase his chances of completing the challenge he made his posts public over social networks with the #100happydays hashtag. It went viral and in In April 2014 I became aware of the 100 Happy Days project
I wasn't particularly unhappy or dissatisfied with my life, but when I heard about #100happydays I remembered how much I had enjoyed capturing Good times with Frank! I decided to give Happy Days a go.
I had a glorious 79 days, which as I write this three years later disappoints me. However, those 79 days cemented my enthusiasm for photography, got me to seriously start thinking more about composition, technique, narrative and editing. But most of all and rather unsurprisingly it made me happier and hungry for more knowledge and opportunities to use that knowledge. I don't see those 79 days as a failure to complete 100 happy days but the catalyst to infinite happy, challenging, creative and rewarding days .
