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 07 2009 Running Errands in Traffic

Always good to find something to amuse oneself while driving around town during the pre-total-rush-hours. I'm not so good at listening to the radio and driving; furthermore, the radio drowns out the sound of my 38-year-old German engineering under the hood, and who would want that? Nah, while I drive, I read things. Like bumper stickers and license plates. I think I am easily amused. This one was fun: I do like to feel someone is being clever, not cursing me, but suggesting that they are cursing me, though they aren't. It's so, well, clever.

At the light, I aimed, zoomed, and shot. It was really nothing special, except I now know why I want to kill drivers on cell phones when they're at lights. People get dumb when they multi-task. I felt so...disoriented.
