A photo a day. That was my original intention when I launched this blog back in January 2010 and I did indeed post 365 images that first year, 366 in 2012, and then another 365 in 2014. (2011 and 2013 were both relatively inactive years, for various reasons, my rationale at times having something to do with quality vs. quantity.) Having now tried it both ways, I firmly believe that quantity (or rather the consistency of daily practice) is in fact the surest and most direct route to quality.
This blog is my sketchpad, a visual journal of my life, and the engine that propels me down my creative path. It also tends to be a rather eclectic affair, dominated by my Canon 20D (often in conjunction with a Lensbaby Sweet 35 optic) while also reflecting my enthusiasm for vintage cameras. I often share my experiments and adventures in film photography with my beloved Polaroids (SX-70 and Spectra both), a Brownie Hawkeye, a Yashica Mat, and an old Canon SLR I picked up on eBay all well represented. And, as a firm believer in the modern adage that the best camera is the one you have with you, you’ll find I’m not shy about posting the occasional iPhone snap. :-)
