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.

April 05 2009 Folding Paper Cranes

My cousin-in-law is getting married and decided on the 1000 paper cranes for good luck. We live half a continent away, so we chipped in with our own crane party. Not many of us were brave enough to conquor the steps of origami, but we concluded the evening with 133 paper cranes--the lion's share built by me, a good portion by my neice, and a few by other brave souls.

The photographer took this picture. I was too busy folding.

The cranes were a HUGE hit - check the new photo album on myspace - hopefully more people will be sending me photos - like you, I was too busy doing the thing to photograph the thing!
