the allure of metro

year two

day174 :: year two

as you may or may not know, i’m currently working on a photography project – project365 :: year two.

yes, you read that link right. this is year two – i completed year one in january. you’d think i’d get tired of it, but actually, i got a little worried about *not* documenting every day. i mean, it’s become part of my every day routine. and, there’s really no rhyme or reason to this project. the only rules are to take a photo a day, for an entire year. sometimes i feel like photographing on a theme. most of the time, i’m just looking for interesting things, new angles, and most importantly – not to take the same photo twice.

so, in thinking about that last concept, i realized there are certain subjects i tend to feature more prevalently than others. it’s like taking photos when you go out with friends. inevitably, there’s someone who avoids being in the photos, even if they’re with you the entire time, and there’s someone who ends up in every shot. you end up with a disproportionate amount of photos of one person compared to the other.

metro, you need to stop getting in front of my camera.

    What’s that line from “Silence of the Lambs” — you covet what you see everyday. Porject365 for me would be tough since the average day is home-office-home and I can’t take pictures of what goes on at work…

    I will say though that your use of angle and perspective has made me a better photographer b/c I think about those things now when I take a shot.

    Also, one downer on wordpress — there’s no notice of so-and-so replied to your comment….
