Happy New Year! Last Christmas, Mitchell got me a shiny, new fancypants camera – the Sony NEX-5. (Camera snobs: It’s fancypants for me. I have no idea how fancypants it is in general). I wanted to put this new impressive thing to use, so I decided to do one photo every day of 2012. Now that 2012 has come to an end, Mayan apocalypse successfully avoided, I get to share the photos with the world! Year neatly summarized.
The first thing you’re likely to notice is that I’m not a particularly skilled photographer. I use exactly one setting, although I play around with the panorama function a bit in October. Also, my creativity waxes and wanes. There are clearly days where I had forgotten to take a photo until right before bedtime. These photos usually involve my cat, Mitchell looking annoyed that he has to pose for me, or a piece of art in our house. I also admit that I missed 9 days. Dammit! I have only ONE task for the WHOLE year, and I SCREW IT UP! Those days are marked by a photo of Mr. Happy Condom, a photo I took in Saigon a few years ago (for no other reason than I love him).
