In My Back Pocket


If you’ve found your way to this photo blog you are likely a person keenly interested in photography or someone who appreciates quality photographic images resulting from skilful camera work. I am a photographer who is about to engage in the 365 day, photo-a-day commitment and will appreciate your stopping in, regularly, to look around, check things out and share in the dialogue that ensues.

About Project 365 – this photo-a-day project holds my interest in terms of its potential for grappling with photography through practice and dialogue. Within this project I should be able to tackle one concept or skill or understanding for short periods of time, work with it, post results and comment about what occurred on a daily basis.

My intention for this photo blog project is best explained by analogy. In relation to fitness, a friend counsels about his need to go beyond weight training, to keep a 5K in his back pocket. On a daily basis, he will direct part of his workout to ensuring he is ready and able when the invitation of a 5K presents itself. His point is that none of us should ever be found sidelined or underprepared for Life’s challenges; daily discipline and practice help maintain, in readiness, our strength, stamina and competencies to challenge any such opportunity. To this end, each morning, he adds 50 minutes of long, slow burn cardio exercise to his workouts. And, you’ll find he’s more than prepared to engage in a 5K or most other Life challenges, whenever they arise.

Moving toward Photography that’s In My Back Pocket  Working a little each day at this year-long, photo-a-day project, competencies should develop, understandings should gel and solidify and quality photographic results should occur with greater consistency. I anticipate that my talk surrounding photography will evolve as will how I include camera work within each day. Best images result from competent camera work and good understanding of practice and our intent, things each of us should have in our back pocket when the opportunity of a photograph presents itself. I hope you will engage in dialogue with me about these matters and that you’ll find the grace to share your knowledge, your questions and your comments (and ‘likes’) along the way. Your interest and goodwill are appreciated.

Thank you for stopping by.
