On December 22, 2008, I decided to start a photography blog. I am not sure where the idea came from – I didn’t read blogs back then, and didn’t do any kind of regular photography, either. But the idea showed up and wouldn’t leave, so I kicked it off my first blog on January 1, 2009. Today I am completing five years of posting a photograph every day.
My Research Department could probably nose around and find those early blogs, but the Department has worked very hard this year, and deserves some time off. So, here they are. That first one in 2009 is here. And then the 2010 effort. And, 2011 looked like this. Then, I finally figured out that it made more sense to not start a whole new blog every year, so 2012 is here, on One Day | One Image.
It’s been an interesting five years, and I am looking forward to five, or ten or fifteen, more. I’m not going to get all introspective or anything, other than to say this: the very best part has been making friends along the way, a delightful unintended consequence of that late-December decision to start a blog.
PS: Those photos from 2009 and 2010 (and, let’s be honest, 2011) were not that great, were they?
