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 21 2009 The Philosophy of Broken Glass

It is so that a crafter would save broken drinking glasses for years before using them. Alternately, an artist would purchase a new set of glassware to break for a project today.

I played with different settings, having discovered that "SCN" on the camera dial has several options. This came out nicely, just like I was seeing it: Color Accent, no flash, macro focus. I have no idea what color I told it to accent, and it definitely didn't make the background monochrome, but nothing this nice came out with any of the other thirty settings I tried.

Would you consider yourself the artist or the crafter? And would the artist save the pieces for future use, or just buy again next time?

LOL only on our Hawaii trip did I FINALLY discover the self-portrait, candlelight, and other settings on my camera. A little time and breathing room and it's amazing what you can figure out.
