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 9 2009 Me and My Future Projects

This morning I finished my daughter's violin rest, and I felt a bit fidgety not having another project. My sister and I went to the Junk/Antique/Totally crazy clutter mall today and in a jewelry store I just fell in love with some broaches and I realized that I could really use some inspirations for some new projects. My sister chose a 1900 broach the woman wanted to charge too much for, so I stood there and inspected it for a while and she started taking dollars off the price. Then I started checking out some other ones verrrrry slooooowly and she ended up giving me a fourth one for free.

Pinned my broaches to myself and used the mirror trick to see the display screen so I could get a well composed shot. It's such a cool trick.
