On This Date: Photo taken 1/1/2008.
On the first day of 2008 I took my then-brand-new Nikon D300, set it to capture black-and-white pix, and wandered down our street snapping merrily away. ‘Twas my first serious session with the camera, and I was quite pleased with the results.
I still am.
This photo was taken from our yard, looking north. There’s now a garage obstructing this view–that’s OK; the neighbors needed it.
I make a calendar for friends and family every year, and a color version of this photograph is the January pic for that calendar’s 2017 edition. They’re really not much different, but in many ways I prefer this rendering.
Here’s the plan for “On This Date:” Each day this year I’ll post a photograph taken on the same date in some other year. Should be a fun way to look back at my photography.
I’ll fill in the details for the project plan over the next few days.
Number of pix taken on various January 1sts: 218
Year of oldest photo: 1977
