I realized recently that I had not picked up my camera for anything other than jewelry and shop shoots in weeks. This made me sad because I so love doing photography just for the fun of it. So I decided that I was going to do a photo a day project for the month of September. One month (30 days) of taking a photo every day. More importantly, I wanted to make it a series of fairly unstaged “this is what my life looks like” shots, with minimal editing. Stuff I see or do every day.
September 2011. A month in the life, photo series.
Pink elephants on parade. The pink ‘phants lived on my grandmother’s dresser in the spare room, next to the antique monogrammed silver hairbrush, comb and mirror set. When I was a little girl, I’d stand and look at them and sometimes if nobody was watching, I’d reach out and touch one very carefully. When my grandmother passed away, my aunt made sure the ‘phants came to live at my house. I take a moment to admire them every day.
This is the window just to the side of my comfy chair, where I do most of my work online. It’s a happy little window.
