Yesterday, I woke up and decided to take a picture with my iphone, 7:30am. While out with the pooch I decided to snap another picture, 9:26 am. I sorted of repeated it throughout the day. Posting a few on instagram but not everything.

This was not my intention when I first opened my eyes yesterday morning, to document my day in pictures (or at least some of it). The first few were fun, but then it became sort of a task. You start asking yourself, “is this really what I want to take a picture of? and then publish it?” Simply pushing a button, can be harder then one might think. Resisting photographic urges like styling, playing with light or editing can be tricky. And then there is when and what should I photograph? It’s funny how we view our everyday lives and what is picture worthy?

For me, I like taking pictures but I love making pictures. Yesterday’s project reassured that. k

a word about the pictures: these are all the shots from my day minus the ones that were of basically the same thing. The only filter I used was inkwell except for my lunch which I think was nashville and some soft focus. The ones that were not on instagram I grayscaled in photoshop and cropped squared for consistency. The first image I took of the dresser I left full frame and no edits, I took that same image at different times through out the day.
