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.

July 21 2009 Laugh and point

I have a new idea. One month I am going to do all contributions to my favorite blogs, whether I draw a comic or post a picture that would fit into a specific group, or what. Now, it should be forewarned that I mostly read blogs that make fun of people or things people like/have made, so you should not be concerned with my willy-nilly finger-pointing amusement. It's not willy-nilly. I choose these blogs because the authors are funny, and the things they make fun of are totally amusement-worthy.

This thought arises because this is the second post this month where the photograph was inspired by one of my regularly-RSSed blogs. The first was the Cake Wreck, where I also wrecked every semblance of slang I could muster, and this one is inspired by the amazing art over at skull-a-day (which is not a poking-fun site).

Enjoy, my husband's way cool button-down shirt:

I stood well back and shot full 24x with flash and moved, so it sucked. Finding the subject again in low light at 24x zoom is really difficult, so I had to retract the lens and reset, this time with less zoom and I covered part of the flash (not sure which exactly) and got a good shot.

Tomorrow's word: amusement
