Sometimes you do a thing on a whim – without any real thought or planning or expectations – and it turns out to be the best thing, the most life-altering thing, a thing you couldn’t have even imagined.
On January 1, 2009, I started a blog, a photography blog. My concept (a rather grand term for what was really more like the vaguest of ideas) was to post a black and white image every day for year. I completed that year, and did another and another and now here we are, as I embark on my 14th year of posting images every day. A lot has happened since then. For one thing, I’ve become a much better photographer. But the main thing is that I have made strong connections with photographers all over the world, and can count some of them as among my closest friends. That is something I never could have imagined.
All of this to say: follow your whims – you never know what can happen.
