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 07 2008 A Good Loaf of Bread

I actually made a New Year's resolution. It's to enjoy the cornucopia the Grand Valley offers. This bread is made in a bakery about 3 blocks from my house. It's soft, tasty, local. I bet if I went to my front porch at 5 a.m. I could smell fresh bread being made, it's that local. So far it's the only local thing I've enjoyed this year besides the local-roasted coffee sold at my warehouse store and the local brewed coffee at the knit group and the local brewed beer at the microbrew 12 blocks away. Actually, listing all those things, I don't think I'm doing too poorly on my resolution. [Insert pun about toasting my progress]

How to take a picture when the batteries are dead: Turn camera on and quickly turn off display. Point, shoot. Save-light flashes just before camera auto-offs. Adjust mechanically adjustable settings. Push power button, point, shoot, watch for save light. Repeat until camera ceases to take or save picture before power dies. Plug camera into computer and upload photos. Choose the least terrible shot. Write post. Be grateful one was pretty good. Make a note to find the rechargeable batteries. Also, make note to find battery charger.
