Photo-a-Day 2009

Well, it’s over.

All in all, that was a fun experiment. I think if I were to redo it, I would be less strict with the “one photo a day” rule. When you start out, there are a lot of interesting subjects — but about halfway through you start to realize that having a 9-5 desk job isn’t the most conducive environment for creative photography. There are more than a few cases throughout the year where I had to take two or three photos from one day, and spread them out over multiple days.

Having said that, though, it made me more aware of my camera. Things I probably wouldn’t have bothered photographing before suddenly became very important. Above all, that spirit is what I want to take from this project into the future.

A lot of the pictures I took over the year weren’t that special, but there are some I’m particularly fond of. For example, around the same time each month, I took a picture looking out at the same spot from my apartment’s balcony, to show the progression of seasons.

In addition to those, there are some specific photos that I think turned out well. I think I will close out this post, and this project, with that list:

Photo a Day: July

Hard to believe July is already over, but it is. And here are the pictures to prove it. My birthday and Otakon were the highlights this month. Enjoy!

Photo a Day: May

I’m a bit late on this one, but May’s Photo a Day is complete and ready for viewing. As spring turns into summer, the wildlife comes out. We saw a couple good movies too.

Photo a Day: April

Finally got all of April’s pictures uploaded.

This month spring arrived, much to the chagrin of my nose. Lots of flowers, trees bursting with leaves and beer. Er, well, I guess that doesn’t have much to do with spring, but there was a lot of beer & food this month too.

And of course, April 30 saw the release of the Windows 7 Release Candidate. It looks great, but my video card and/or drivers seem to cause some minor Aero hesitation when closing windows. Very annoying, so I’m still trying to decide whether I want to start using it full time or not. Hopefully a future driver update will resolve it. Other than that, I really love the look of the OS!


Photo a Day: March

Is it really April already? Wow. Well, the complete month of pictures for March 2009 is up. This is where my car passes 100,000 miles. Then I say good bye to it. Then I say hello to a new one. And some other stuff happened. It was a busy month!

Again, to my old car: thank you for all your faithful years of service. I wanted to retire you while I could keep happy memories of you, and not see you dead on the side of the road.


Photo a Day: February

Just a quick post for those who are interested: all photos are up for February 2009. Deer in the dark, a face in the clouds, and the end credits of GTA IV are some of the highlights. Thanks for looking!
