From The Phone Years End

What started out as a just a whim turned out to be rather fun. When I posted the first of the “From The Phone” pictures I had no plans for making it a series that would last all year long. The first phone photo from the lake was posted on 01/30/2009 and the last one was posted 11/28/2009 which if I added correctly that makes ten months. During that amount of time I managed to post eight photos from the same spot at the lake. I really planned on getting one more before years end but something called snow, and lots of it, put the brakes on that plan. One thing I’m pretty sure about is it would’ve have looked pretty much like the first photo.

With that, “From the Phone all at once” post in the same time line. Pretty cool to watch it all change as the year went along.

Next year I’ll look for a new spot and start all over again. I will also keep posting other From the Phone pictures as they happen while out riding. Here is hoping we all get to roll up the miles in the new year. And with that…

Funny thing how these concepts evolve without any effort.

I hope your New Year is great Fasthair and you get to ride Whiskey many miles during 2010.

That was a pretty neat project. There's a similar one recommended for fledging photographers. It's an exercise in seeing how the light changes with seasons. I cheated and copied your assignment!

Happy New Year to you, too!

Dear Mr. Fasthair:

My photography project did not turn out as well as yours. Whle you focused on your bike, I decided to photograph my first former mother-in-law in the exact same position from month to month. This entailed having to tie her to a tree in yard.

I found the gnawed-through ropes at the foot of the tree yesterday. The "Family Curse" is loose again and stalking me from the shadows. She has the same look carried by Jack Nicholson in "The Shining."

I look forward to another year of following in your footsteps.

Fondest regards,

Same bike...same spot...but every pict has a completely different feeling. That is what is awesome about this.

Hope you have a good year! Cheers mate!

That is a neat time capsule sort of thing. Next time take some spray paint and mark the tire spot and where you took the pic from. Then you can be at the same each time. It's just a suggestion I thought would be cool.
Enjoyed the reads and pics over the last year.
I don't remember how I found all you people I try to keep up with, Might have begun from KT Dids place, but I'm glad I did.

I love the changes throughout the year. Almost makes me wish I didn't live in the tropics.
