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 19 2009 Me and My Work

Yesterday, prime factorization. Today, constructing numbers from combinations of prime numbers. See, the student has a problem understanding implicit relationships between numbers. We've tried all sorts of puzzle games, but he's always trying to make a prediction about the nature of the operations, and he always fails to come up with something logical. With this whole prime number thing, I'm really pushing him to make predictions about where the product of a selection of prime numbers will land. Furthermore, reducing such complex math to a game of sidewalk chalk puts me on his level literally, and brings his confidence up to my level. He never guesses, and he's rarely wrong.

My camera shyness reduces my self portraits to body parts. One of us is going to have to get over it. Also, I love these pants.
