Daily Photo 20190101 Happy New Year!

Oh, boy -- I must be insane! But today I'm beginning a "photo a day" project for 2019. It'll be somewhat easier than in previous years since I've got the cellphone so handy, but still -- it's a responsibility.

What I do like about the project is that it makes me think about photography all the time, and encourages to make something daily.

Another reason that this might be a bit easier than in the past is that I'm also making things in the studio, so little shots about what I'm making will always be my "go-to" subjects when I get desperate.

This is a page in a handmade book I made that sits open on a cabinet in my dining room. It's made from kraft paper, acrylic paint, and India ink. The little round jobbers? Made by dipping a wine cork into acrylic paint and then stamping the paper. Taken with an iPhone 8 Plus.

So here we go. Day one is done. Just 364 more to go. Wish me luck.

  1. Well, I did comment but not sure what happened to it! So good luck on your venture, if anyone can complete it, you can!!! I remember following your past daily blogs and remember how much I enjoyed them.

    1. Thanks for persevering trying to leave a comment. Blogger is often sketchy, and is frustrating when you try to leave a comment only to see it disappear into the ether. And thanks for the good luck -- methinks I'm gonna need it!


I know it takes time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it when you do. Thanks!
