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.

May 11 2009 Me and My Sister & Her Collection

This is my other sister's collection of pez dispensers. When I left home ten years ago, this collection was already well underway, and since then it has only grown in volume and in variety. She's a high-schooler now and delves into more sophisticated research (note her numerous science olympiad medals)but will still break out the pez for a museum display portion of a Girl Scout badge. I laughed at her when she knocked sections over, dominoes style, and I helped her by moving whole sections of the display and by breaking into unopened packages and setting aside duplicates. That's me on the right, her pez center frame, and her on the left.

We set ourselves up and I held the camera out and over and tried three shots to get reasonable composition, trying to learn from the mistakes of the previous shot. This one, not too shabby.
