brief snapshots in time. memories and thoughts. disorganized and random.

a picture and a thousand words (or less)

I've been inspired.

By my photography class. By Jeremy's new photo-laden blog and his comment from earlier today. And by Charming and NaBloPoMo.

Much like Charming I considered doing the write-a-novel-in-a-month thing, but who am I kidding. I don't have time for that.

So, instead, I will post every day in November.

When I considered this earlier this week, I balked. I didn't think I could come up with something to write every day without boring you all to tears.

But it all came together. I've also been needing to organize some of my photos. Particularly as I'm hoping to use some as gifts for the holidays. Now, while I'm camera-less is as good a time as any.

Looking through my archives of pictures always makes me want to share them. And always brings up memories. Like my pumkins did earlier today.

So, after listening to one of my favorite photographers describe his work, and the situation or story behind his photographs for the last two nights, I know what I want to write about.

The picture-inspired stories. I hope to post a photo and tell a short related story every day for the next thirty days.

(And, not to worry, those of you who can't go a whole month without tales of my boring life, and since I'm sure I can't refrain, life-update-posts will happen every once in a while as well.)

We'll see how this goes. Wish me luck.

A promise of a post a day deserves a promise of a comment a day as well.

I look forward to it.

Agreed with least I'm going to try!

It is tough to post every day when you are busy. I have done it at times,but it is hard to keep that kind of a pace. I wish you much luck!
