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 06 2009 Enjoying End-Of-Day Sweetness

My month of April is proving more stressful than I even imagined, especially with poorer sleep than I should be getting. Misplacing ink cartridges (really, I'm confused), being a messenger of information instead of the destination for that information, children feeding off my mood, little bits of frustrations speckled around my day. I make everything pleasant take longer than necessary: a walk to a friend's house for fresh eggs, reading Edward Gorey, a slideshow of the children's photoshoot yesterday, dessert.

Nothing special today, though I did mess with the composition. I read that portrait settings blur the background more. I will try that if I remember next time I take a subject shot.
