Following the third year of a holiday letter comprised
of my (increasingly complex) life via a (increasingly complex) year-in-photographs, I
wondered what it would be like to join the great experiment of 365 days of photographs.
I'm not a photographer,
I'm a writer. I'm a visual thinker, and if ever there was proof that a photo is worth a
thousand words, it would be the story a photo tells me, or in this case, about me.
Follow me on this adventure, where I
learn about photography, my ability to record my life, my dedication to something (I've
never been known for doing anything everyday) in my posts. I've also discovered I'm
learning about time, the history of it, and the odd practice of recording it, measuring it,
turning it into something tangible, and I'll record these explorations in the sidebar.
As always, feel free
to say anything. My experiment is not a spectator sport.

January 12 2009 The Dualing Workspace

Writing webpages involves sitting down with the user. Wouldn't it be easier if I just had an office? Instead, I draw out my monitor, keyboard, mouse from the spare places in the house and wire up a tower. Wireless internet, two versions of the website going at once. Change this, edit that, add these things, don't get tangled. See you tomorrow, where we learn how to change the pictures.

Way less cool is this same photo with the flash on. I'd have to go into explaining dust, etc. No, this no-flash shot gets the glow of the monitor that is on. Had I thought of it, I would have taken this same shot before shutting down the other computer, just to demonstrate the dualing glows. The long shot demonstrates the chaos. I'm good at chaos.
