I spent part of the day pulling 30 year old fluorescent light fixtures out of the kitchen and replacing them with LED fixtures. It wasn’t a complex job, it just took time.

Which is not unlike this photo blog which, with this image, completes seven continuous years of publishing. That’s 2,557 days of images, little slices of life from my travels.

The new lights are much, much brighter than the old ones were, the intensity and shift in color has changed the way I see our old kitchen. It’s an easier place to work in now, but the age of the space shows more clearly. The new technology doesn’t change how we live but it does change the way we see.

And maybe that does change the way we will live.

Here’s to another 365 days of seeing.
