It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, even the out-of-towners get excited. Spent the weekend with the National Press Photographers Association board of directors at their annual meeting, the seventh time it’s been held here at Grady.

Versions of Paradise

We all have our interpretations of paradise. For some, it’s shorts in December. For others, it’s palm trees and technicolor beverages.

For me, it’s anywhere I can use my camera to share a little snippet of life – whether’s it’s sitting at the pharmacy waiting to pick up the dog’s medication or sitting at the same pharmacy, a few days later, to get my flu shot.

The joy of taking a four dimensional world and bringing it down to just two, to preserve a moment in time from a particular point of view … to me, that’s paradise.

And with this post, I close out 3,287 days of making and sharing a photo every day here on the phlog. Nine years, no misses.

Tomorrow, batteries charged up again, I’ll start year ten of what was supposed to be a one-year project. I can’t wait to see something new.
