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.

March 02 2009 Come See

My daughter comes in, tugs on my sleeve, "Mom, you have got to come see the sunset. It is beautiful." She leads me towards the back door as I snag the camera. She points, and I am surprised. My little girly girl has chosen a striking pastel sky, clear and bright against the shadows coming up from behind. The touch of pink, of which I expected would douse the landscape above, is barely visible. My daughter saw fit to fetch me for this sunset.

Camera on landscape, which includes no flash. I worked a bit with the composition by where I stood, how I zoomed, and what was in the frame.
