Greetings all. Happy 2019 to everyone. My hope is that yours will be healthy and prosperous.
Earlier today, I was installing some updates to my iPhone and came across one of the the App Store’s standard features on suggested apps. This one included a number of apps slated towards creating a daily post of media for the whole year, particularly photos. Ironically, a buddy of mine, Darrenkeith Wyatt, and I have always discussed our mild passion for taking and sharing our own artistically (if you will) photos, but didn’t favor them being “lost on the shuffle” on photo sharing platforms like Instagram. Instead, we always favored hosting them on our blogs, instead of those aforementioned “gated communities” (as Darrenkeith calls them LOL).
The idea came to me during our chat earlier, that I’d like to take on this “challenge” without employing an app. That said, I shared that idea with him and we’ve both decided to do it.
The first photo was taken on the early afternoon of 31 Dec 2018, after leaving a Starbucks in downtown DC. As I was heading back to my car, the image of The Capitol caught my eye, and appeared to be a nice shot. It was a rainy afternoon and while the original photo is in color, the black and white version is not too far off, but looks better to my eye.
Hope you enjoyed it.
