In Seattle

I am currently in Seattle on business. I haven’t been here in 21 years. It is still a wonderful, beautiful city. I need to get back here more often. I’m spending my days watching testers work with a prototype of our application and listening to their comments and seeing what works and what doesn’t work for them. In the early mornings and evenings I am seeing friends, eating amazing food, and taking lots of pictures with my new iPhone 4 camera (much improved over my iPhone 3GS). I am collecting the pictures online in my Flickr account.

Project365 Complete!

On November 30, 2010 I took the 365th photograph in my year-long journey of taking a picture every day. With the exception of a few guest shots by others (usually my wife) and a day or two where I never took a picture and fudged with two from the next (shhh!) it’s been a year long odyssey ¬†of growth and discovery. And I think I am a better photographer for having done it. I learned so much about the mechanics of photography but even more about how to see, compose, and play.

I had such a good time that yesterday, December 1st, I kicked off year two.

The complete Year One can been seen at MobileMe and Flickr and in the slideshow below.

Project 365

Thanks to the free iPhone App Photo 365, I have embarked on a fun project to take at least one photo every day. I decided to keep this 100% iPhone relying only on the iPhone 3GS camera and a handful of processing apps including Best Camera, Photoshop, TiltShiftGen, and ColorMill. The app supports uploading to a specific album in Facebook, which if I understand Facebook’s privacy settings, is world-viewable, and I am also trying to get these up into a Flickr set as well but not daily as I don’t scrape the pictures off my phone into iPhoto that often. I’m learning a lot as I go through the process. For example, I am not trying to take pictures of beautiful things but rather am discovering how the mundane can be made interesting through composition and/or creative filtering. I’m 19 days in so I have a long way to go. It will be interesting to see how my eye changes as the year progresses.

Waterfall in Woodstock, NY

While it’s a gray day, it’s still beautiful this time of year. I love visiting my family here at the Holidays. We had a wonderful party at my sister’s last night and today we’re being tourists in Woodstock.
