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.
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.
