I love how photography enables me to see. I have a lot of things going on, so I tend to place seeing into the background. I’ll say something like, “Well, I have to take the kids to school, and I don’t have time to see.” Is that true? Isn’t it always possible to see? In 2011, I had many things going on, a new job and a divorce, an angry love and a child. My life was complicated by the turmoil, but I return to the question, can I see?
dyxum.com has been my friend for ages, and in each October, there is a challenge to use one camera and one lens, and do the best you can to see each day in the month. I joined in 2011, and it was wonderful and beautiful. It isn’t about the gear per se, though gear can help capture our perceptions accurately. It is about seeing.
I’m creating this post in 2016, but the event was in 2011. I am posting just my photos, one per day, from October 2011.
