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 11 2009 A Cookie Day

My photo was a battle between freshly opened boxes of Girl Scout cookies and a beautiful plate of homemade cookies made by the knitting group hostess. I decided there were plenty of photos of Girl Scout Cookies, and my hostess' cookies were quite tasty. I did not photograph my knitting because it looks a heck of a lot like the results of last week's knitting, just a few rows longer. The knit group hostess has a kick butt bean bag chair that if enough people show up to kick her husband out (or scare him out) I am snarking the chair. I have dibs. I may spend the night in it.

Having learned to step back and zoom, I am so happy to learn that I can better control the composition of my photo with this technique. I used no flash and the stove lighting. It works well.

Cookies are good, I like to eat them, smell them, and if I am feeling fresky, bake them!
