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.

February 06 2009 A Lesson in Handwriting

Some have it, others don't. The girl's homework on the left, the boy's on the right. She's six, he's four. She's been writing for 2+ years, he just started. That boy has talent, and she needs practice without being overwhelmed. It doesn't matter, she knows more about Gothic Architecture than I do and is writing a play about the first two Europeans on the American continent. Just sayin'.

Flash, with zoom, from further away. Finally, a flash photo I don't hate.
