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 20 2009 The New Dishes

Watching the Inauguration at my mother-in-law's because I don't have any television, I enjoyed some loose Moroccan Mint tea in a piece of her new set. Then I enjoyed a slice of pizza on the same new set. Then I hunted down the box with her old set and took them home, giving my cabinet a makeover. Then I sipped a cup of coffee in my new set. I love Monet, but prefer dark or bold colors to pastels.

I put the setting on "night snapshot" and turned off the flash. I do not seem to like yellow with flash. I went for the handles/shadows look, because a stack of plates is kind of boring. I have noticed some of the darker pictures are indeed really dark on my husband's laptop. They look great on my computer though, so if you're having problems, it's your monitor's fault.
