We were driving back from Clarion tonight (Dave was driving) and I was thinking. I finished my self portrait-a-day book recently - did a drawing/painting in it every day for the last year. I must admit I was very relieved when I completed the last one but now a couple weeks have gone by and I feel the urge to start another creative project. Perhaps do a self portrait photo a day for a year. It'll need some rules - something to tie it together. I might use just one camera - the little Sony TX9 which would be very easy to carry with me each day and easy to balance on a mini tripod if necessary. Generally I want to crop the photos to 11 by 8. It will need to have at least one part of my body in it but not always the face - a hand, foot or even a piece of clothing will do.
SPAD = Self Portrait A Day
Here's a start - in my room in the spot where I do my computerating. Milo by my side - as usual - rubbing and licking my hand as I try to use the mouse. This is "his" bed.
We had a nice day driving to Clarion and seeing Johnny. His fiance Alison had made quiche for their breakfast and then she had gone on to work but he served us the quiche for lunch. She is really a good cook! We sat around and talked politics and about our amazement that Trump is so popular. Unbelievable! I am just shocked that so many people in America are such idiots that they would want that man to represent our country. What is going to happen next? Frightening. Then we drove over to see the house that Chloe and Mike are building. On the way we stopped at the Helen Furnace. It is interesting that originally it was called the Highland Furnace but because of the Scottish accent of the local people it came to be known as Helen Furnace. ( Some photos of the furnace and at Chloe's - HERE )
