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 21 2009 Hang There

The onset of warm weather has brought the hatching of bugs aside the open doors and windows. The unexpected place to find a bug, however, is hanging from a spider's strand from my ceiling in the middle of the walk way. The photograph does not do justice to the oddity and the beauty of this creature suspended three feet from my ceiling.

I took this photo on macro with and without flash. Without flash highlighted the iridescence of the wings more. The lens-to-subject distance was only about two or three inches, and the insect was in motion, free spinning. It was a lucky shot.
