Well I’m glad that’s over… 2009 good riddance and looking forward to a more prosperous New Year for 2010. This year I spent the New Year’s celebration with friends. If I can get a hold of the pictures I’ll forward along; I may censor the dirty tiger pics, but that remains to be seen.
This year I’m going to try and take up a daunting task of a 365 project. A summary of that link is I vow to take a picture every day and upload a post every day with that photography. As you can read this, I’m already late on this but have a back log of photos to process and load. The thought here is to improve both my writing skills, get a full album view of life through my lens and ultimately push myself to be a better photographer. Note: The above picture does not belong to me; credit is due to Bob Jagendorf, a much better photographer than I.
In addition to the photo365, I’d like to accompany each post with some music. Yes why don’t I make it harder on myself but the goal is set and let’s see how I do. The first song I heard in the new year was Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind which I think being both one of the top 10 songs of the year and being very appropriate for both New Yorkers and the new year, it was fitting.
Enjoy the new year all and let’s hope all those list and resolutions you set come true! Here’s a shot I took of some graffiti on the inside of our lobby door (It only lived 2 days before the super painted over it). I took this just before Christmas and I think it’s good advice for 2010:
