Somewhere on the road between Kirkjubaejarklaustur and
the Skaftafell glacier, this jagged edge of a mountain appeared.
In 2000, the last year of the 20th Century, I decided to take a photo a day of my son (11 years old at the time). I thought that it would be a fun project with him but there might be some difficulties. Technically this meant shooting one image per day, using one roll of film per month and hoping that I didn’t make any mistakes along the way. I also decided to shoot B&W film because I could handle the processing myself. The project started out simply – he’d stand against the same white wall everyday, with the date written on a piece of paper, and he’d make a silly face. Eventually I moved away from the wall and photographed him in different locations. As the year progressed I processed the film and put it into print file negative pages. At the end, I brought my “12 months” to a photo lab to make me 16×20 enlarged contact prints. They looked beautiful.
The following year – 2001 – was the start of the 21st Century and this time I photographed my daughter. The process and final product was the same but I shot color film instead. Then in 2005 I returned to the project shooting both my son and daughter together. This time I shot digital, which made it easier. The only difficult part was making sure that I didn’t forget to take a photo, but my kids would always remind me, “Dad, you didn’t take the photo of the day yet!” Digital also made it easier because I could shoot several images and pick the best one. The final product was different though, it was a book instead of a contact print.

Don’t you want some pancakes with a side order of bacon and eggs?!
I know I do. And, please, don’t forget the coffee.
Maybe it’s just an East Coast thing…

Photography made with 35mm color slide film, scanned with Nikon Scanner.
Love the National Parks, but visiting Yosemite today would
probably be a nightmare with the congestion.

On a frozen lake, 2 men were ice fishing and one man, on the right, was observing.
My question, how is this fun?

More snow. More shoveling. More work.
I’m tired just thinking about it.
