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 17 2009 The Poker Winnings

Poker tonight. Penny ante. Played nickels and pennies and whatever people had in their pockets. Two newbies tonight, one will turn eight soon. Brave, raising nearly every bet and never folding, he took third most in the winnings. This is it.

Quick shot, the only remnants of the game, taken before I left. No attempt at decent photography, though I do wonder what it is about me and taking shots at this angle. It keeps a lot of background out, which is what my goal is, but is this the best way? I'll play with that thought for the future.

I love the refelction of what looks like Casper the ghost gasping at the treasure trove of loose change. Like its a once in a life time find!!!
