“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
― Marc Riboud

As I teach during the final years of my career, it is beginning to make me feel nostalgic.  I am trying, in a way, to savor every second.  My personal project, to take a photo each day for the last five years of my career, began last year by photographing the things I saw around the school.

Flower

A flower arrangement in the school office was my subject one day.

Paint Brushes

Brushes and paint left outside on the sidewalk seemed to capture a day in the life at school.

Sparkly Purse

A student’s purse on the playground turned into a colorful subject.

Broom

I found myself looking at everything more intensely to determine whether I could make an image using it.

This was just the beginning of my project, last year.  I found, after a while, that just the inanimate objects were not enough to hold my interest.  I hope you will continue to follow my project to see where it has led.
