365 Photography Challenge

A few years ago, someone created the 365 Photography Challenge; a challenge to take one picture, every day, for an entire year.  In 2011, I tried to take a photo of myself every day, with limited success; before I take a photo, I have to be inspired by something truly amazing, or something that captures my interest.  This challenge has inspired a few groups on Flickr, like this one, as well as a plethora of blog posts tagged with 365 Challenge.  Presented here are links to some truly awe-inspiring 365 Photography Challenge posts.

How To Live An Epic Existence

A Notebook For Every Purpose

A Notebook For Every Purpose

Recently, I resumed the arduous task of going through the contents of my fathers estate, and came across a collection of small bound notebooks.  I never realized just how much my late father and I had in common, until just recently.  As it turns out, he was an avid note-taker like me, and like me, had the compulsion to over-document his ideas, plans, and experiences. Unfortunately, his notebooks are filled with diagrams, schematics, and very high-end scientific mathematical equations that I do not understand.  Brilliant work, indeed, but of course, when he was alive I asked him about...

Ernest Hemingway Quote

Ernest Hemingway Quote

I believe that love that is true and real, creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing. And then the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face, like some rhino-hunters I know or Belmonte, who is truly brave... It is because they make love with sufficient passion, to push death out of their minds... until it returns, as it does, to all men... and then you must make really good love again. -Ernest Hemingway
