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.

A) Yes, that is me.
B) Yes, I own a "Brown Mickey Mouse" jacket.
C) That guitar strap is my daughters and DOES NOT FIT. I pinned it on the jacket.
D) Yes, those are Oreos.

E) Yes, I did this photo all by myself. It took 13 shots for composition before I put on the jacket, and 10 after.
F) Yes, this is the last shot. Interestingly, I had settled on the previous shot and turned off my camera, resetting all my adjustments, before I took this one final shot.

G) Yes, I own vinyl. LOTS. I spent about an hour looking through a part of my collection choosing potentials for this photo.
H) Yes, I have the technological capability to play the vinyl I own. And I do play it. More than I play CDs.

I) Thank you, cousin, for the suggestion on this blog! If you are not my cousin, you should listen to her radio shows. Clicky Wolf Radio.

and, oh yes:
J)Photo: Auto, 10s timer, 4x zoom, camera set up for a vertical picture (this was indeed a feat. It fell once.)
