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 11 2009 Snowing With a Chance of Rainbows

The weather today was remarkable, cloud cover until you've decided to turn on the lights, then sunny until you let the dog out to play. You stepped outside into the rain only to see snowflakes on your hair when you come back in. On days like today, I always look towards the Mesa, in its magnificence, five thousand foot uplift that creates its own weather. Today it looked as if maybe it shared Mother Nature's indecisive nature with us. And yes, before the sun set over the desert, it left us with a double rainbow vivid and transient in the distance.
It was raining or snowing when I took this photo. Landscape setting at the maximum mechanical zoom, no digital zoom. I think that comes up to 7x, but I'm too tired to check right now.
