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 4 2009 To catch a light

It rained on and off again today all afternoon, but this morning was bright and clear. We decided against Grand Lake on the 4th in lieu of reverse traffic battling for the 5th. This led to the conclusion of the day wrapped around the last few moments of daylight for a hike after the weather let up, and a small fire in a little grill under a cloudy sky with a nearly full moon desperately trying to peek through. The trees disguised the source of the firecrackers as they reverberated through the narrow valley with a resounding thunder-esque babble.

Tomorrow: Strap
