Hello, old friend.

You may have noticed, but I haven't been taking many pictures lately. In fact, I haven't updated my Flickr since November.

I am not sure why though I would guess it is a combination of A) My computer broke down last fall so uploading pictures isn't as easy as it used to be B) my lack of creative inspiration/motivation/drive, which seems to have gotten worse and C) my super-fancy camera still makes me feel like this.

My friend Nell is a beginner photographer like me, and recently she came up with the brilliant idea to take one picture, every day for one year, in order to force her to practice photography on a daily basis. Then my other friend Emily said, that's a cool idea, I want to do it, too. And when I heard that both of them were doing it, of course, I wanted to join in the fun. Plus this just might be the kick I need to get my creativity in gear.

So for the next year, inspired by my friends, I will take one picture a day, and post them here and here. My main goal is that after one year of practice, I will have some good pictures and eventually feel more like this.

Day 1: 4/17/10, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

It was Record Store Day on Saturday, so I joined Dan on a jaunt to Brooklyn. He flipped through records and I walked around and took pictures. It was a repeat of what we did last year--minus the cupcakes. Though afterwards, I had cupcakes at my friend Julie's new apartment so it all worked out in the end.
