Making pictures is what I do. A small thing, but something I have done for most of this year. More than a diary this is a collection of small celebrations, something to find pleasure in, something to enrich my everyday life, to have fun with.
Along the way, I’ve learned that a photograph is more than a set of instructions for ISO, aperture and shutter speed. More than something to look at. These pages are like the margins around the picture, where I share notes about the situation or place, my feelings about the subjects, and lessons I’ve learned.
Sharing my ideas, stories, and observations here is like having a conversation with others who like photography. This is less considered then it might sound. At first the conversation was one-sided, but this journal has evolved, quite organically, into a place for give-and-take.
As I make my way toward Day 365, I wonder whether this is a project, a year's worth of pictures, or a practice, something that will become a part of my daily life going forward.
