Now that might seem a bit negative for a blog post title (Same Shit, Different Day) but it’s actually a curiosity, or an interest, when you put it in the context of your photos—especially if you’re shooting digitally, and have easy access to your files.
I was trying to find a photo today to add to a yet-to-be-conceived blog post, when I got curious to see what photos have I taken on this day, April 2, since going digital in 2004.
And here’s what I found and, interestingly enough, what photography phase I was in at the time:
April 2, 2004—The "WHERE IS MY BLACK VELVET? and the "I WILL PAY FOR SHOTS" phase.
April 2, 2005—The "Constant Documentation of EVERYTHING I DO" phase (pictured here at dinner at CKU Minneapolis.)
April 2, 2006—I didn’t take this shot. I believe it was the very talented Candice Stringham, but it is in my iPhoto library under this date, so it counts! I LOVE this shot of me and Ali.) It was also, strangely enough, at a CKU. We really wanted to use this in the final night slide show. Alas. Somehow, it got omitted. I can’t imagine why.
April 2, 2007—Apparently we see a return to the The "WHERE IS MY BLACK VELVET? and the "I WILL PAY FOR SHOTS" phase.
Which leads us to today, and I bet you’re wondering what killer shot I took on this day, April 2, 2008, aren’t you?
