I forgot what the term was called, but you know how it goes: you learn a new concept and suddenly see examples everywhere. (Or look into buying a new car only to discover that “everyone” is driving it) Once I jumped into the rabbit hole of Disney Princess Culture and our daughters, it seemed to [...]

One of the biggest trends on flickr is to start a 365 Project. This usually means taking one self-portrait a day for an entire year. This project is often misunderstood by those outside of flickr, especially since they’re used to the selfie-culture of MySpace and Facebook. It’s not a vanity project. A 365 Project is [...]

Back when I compiled the Top 200 Photos feature, this was #10: and now it’s: which was not in the top 20 before, so it has really gained a lot of views. That comes from the fact that it’s on Pixel-Peer as an example of that lens’ abilities.

The original #15 photo was: and now it’s: which has fallen from #10. It may be one of the most dramatic changes in the lineup.

The original Top 200 Photo in the #18th spot was: and the current #18 photos is: this photo has been on the rise ever since Bradley Manning’s trial started up.

Since it took about a year for my Top 200 photos feature to run its course, I wanted to go back and see how things changed within the Top 20 in that year. When I posted the feature, this was #20: With 1194 views This is the current #20: With 1742 views. So the bar [...]

Some more Photoshop fun for today’s Top 200 Photo photo #84 is: Another fun photo from when I was learning Photoshop. Note, it is not a mirror image, it’s a combination of two images.

Reflections and Self-Portraits in today’s Top 200 Photo. photo #116 is: Ever since I was young I was fascinated by visual depictions of infinity. It’s such a strange concept to get one’s mind around and I’m a visual person. So I’ve always loved looking into parallel mirrors. I also used to love hooking up a [...]

Today’s Top 200 Photo features me again. photo #118 is: I wanted to play around with ideas of censorship and division of photos into frames.

I’m featured in yet another Top 200 Photo. photo #121 is: I was just looking for a quick photo when I was trying to make sure to do one photo every day, but I wasn’t yet working on a 365 Project.

No #140 because it was already covered. As I write this, photo #140 has 416 views and photo #121 has 459 views. So they’re still close enough that just one view can cause a photo to jump 3 or more spots up. photo #139 is: Another boring night in Maryland. Another cool photo with the [...]

Today’s Top 200 Photo. photo #151 is: I was practicing my macro photography and I chose to try and photograph myself. And I decided to focus on my stubble because that seems to be a perpetual feature of mine. I was very happy with the comments I ended up getting.

I’m back with another Top 200 Photo entry. photo #178 is: For a while I was doing yoga at our local gym at work. It was quite a revelation. Media usually portrays it as a girly exercise that’s just a bunch of weird stretching poses. Yoga actually requires quite a bit of strength – especially [...]

I’m writing this post two days before my 365 project ends. It will be published morning upon which I will take my last photo. I decided to end it with an eight-part story. You can start here and follow the photos in the set “The Dark Assignment” which should be open on the right. (Better than [...]
