This year, I once again did Project366, in which I took (at least) one photograph per day all year long. This is something I’ve now been doing for three years — here are the photos from 2010 and 2011. What a strange and wonderful thing, to record life this way. If I wonder what I was ding on any given day from January 1, 2010 through today, I can find out. The entire 2012 set here, or will be, once I add the last couple of images.
This year, I relied more on my phone than I ever have before, which is why so many of these are Instagram images. I am rethinking if/how I’ll participate in a daily photo challenge for 2013. On one hand, the best camera is the one you have with you, and I’m less inclined lately to carry my Nikon everywhere with me. On the other hand, you can’t argue with the fact that the Nikon’s pictures are about forty-seven times nicer than the iPhone’s. Hmmm. At any rate, here are twelve photos from the project, one per month. I chose one that either was representative of that month as I remember it, or just a pretty favorite.
January – Eggs in a basket. Eating eggs was new for me this year.
February – Red velvet cake truffles I made for a jerk on Valentine’s Day.
March – Cycling with my friends around Sanibel Island, Florida. Also, this
was the day I made a big, tough, good decision.
April – Hurray for the Riffraff, a fun new band I saw at the Old 280
Boogie in Waverly, Alabama. It’s one of my favorite annual events here.
May – Famous Egons. The team at the animal hospital gave Egon these pictures of famous Egons for his crate while he was recovering from surgery.
June – Cycling with CW and the beginning of something great.
July – Furthur in Alpharetta, Georgia. We had a wonderful time at the
August – Egon chomping on some grass outside. He was back to his normal,
fabulous self. Plus wheels, of course.
September – My acorn award for winning second in my age group at a trail 5K. My first ever age group placing and the first race back after months of PT.
October – The Lumineers in Atlanta. Another fun trip for CW and me.
November – Pretty leaves and a sculpture in downtown Chattanooga. A great
trip in a lot of ways.
December – The farm in Iowa.
