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 15 2009 Observing the Tea Party

Yes, I went to the tea party. I've already written about it twice, so peek at my other blogs (if you're not subscribed to them, hint hint) and see the different perspectives I've taken. * For this one, though, it was a gorgeous day, it was an interesting experience, and it was a heck of a walk that my hips are really really arguing with me for.

I took over a hundred photos on auto on this fully sunny day from various ranges with various zooms. This one struck me for its variety: the woman with the fur, the man with the sign, man with huge flag sitting on walker, young guy in hippiehat with protest sign, veterans, cell phones, lawn chairs. Taking photos of groups like this reveals a lot of juxtaposition. This one I got by pure chance.

*As of date of post, one has not been published, pending purchase. Yes, I am a paid writer. This will be updated when it is bought and posted.
