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 25 2009 A Bit of Work

Double whammy today: I got new work from two of my jobs. Quite satisfying, actually. I'm only discussing one tonight, though. Since it is a new year and I learned a million little things about working with parents of students in the past year, I composed a new contract. A million little things on one small piece of paper. Cover my rear, if you know what I mean. You don't get to not pay me. You don't get to cancel or not show up. And you are not my student, your child is. If you want me to teach you too, that's extra. Geesh people. Let me do my job.

In this photo today, I aligned my artist-made stamp with my contract so you can't see my name and really, not much of my terms either. If you want more specifics, you have to hire me. However, the stamp is personal. If you can track that, you know everything. There's only one like it in the world. It took me about ten shots to get this right: focus, lighting, and anonymity. Still came out a bit dark.
