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.

August 14 2009 Thrift Shop Horrors

Mismatched Mardi Gras

I went to Goodwill today to find a few things for my son's room's organizational makeover. The kids were over-willing to find ugly things for me to photograph today. I found something most terrible, though.

Festive Mask mounted to Country-Heart-Bordered Mirror.

Show your goods for beads by unbuttoning your gingham dress, I guess.

Not to be overlooked, there are real dried noodles in that vessel directly behind the mask. Who would donate their noodles? And who would buy donated noodles?

For Original Blog ThriftHorror

Many people from the community post how awkward it is taking pictures in a thrift shop--how self-conscious they are about breaking out a camera.

I have no qualms. I didn't even mind when my kids came running saying: Look Mom, this is ugly!
