Welcome

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 12 2009 A Risky Strategy

It's actually the name of the game, Risky Strategy. It's how I learned about the electoral college and the truth about presidential elections. It's also a good way to start talking about politics and elections. And the economy. Which is what happened. It's always good to have the economist over. I have no idea what an economist does, but he is one and we have good debates. Also, don't get a cutting-edge hair style done just before a press conference. You'll have to fork some states over to your opponent.

I can't express how my new-found "step back and zoom" method has increased my confidence in my photography. It takes fewer shots to get exactly what I am looking for. I feel so powerful, to make the machine produce what I imagine it should. What's next?

Looking at that photo I feel like I am in the 80's. Ahhhh, back in the day when I was still a rugrat playing in the tree fort. Those were the good old days. I hope the game is old and not the direction our fashion is moving towards 'cause..... Really do I have to say so.

Nice shoot nice and crisp grabs my attention.
