Feet First | 1
As promised, here is the first installment of my new photo project:
A little explanation.
Last year about this time, my friend Karen introduced a new routine in her life. She wanted to do something each day that would be personally rewarding and made a pact with herself to take a daily walk to the lake. In addition to being a healthy thing to do, she found it rejuvenating and a revelation to see how beautiful and ever-changing the lake was on a daily basis. It also sparked a photo project that involved shooting the same tree from the same angle every time she passed by. It’s a gorgeous record of the changing seasons and the thousand faces of the lake.
A few weeks ago, she suggested that I take up such a challenge, to find something I could do every day that would be rewarding and fun. I thought about what new routine I could do that would add a positive spark to the day and just might, surprisingly, lead to something. I hit on this, taking a photo of my feet, wherever they might take me, every day. An extreme variation on my Saturday 3 p.m. photo. Also, an interesting way to journal my days. We’ll see where it goes.
Today’s photo was taken at the Wrigley Field, during my final game of the 2010 season. There were lots of empty seats in the park and it was easy to get comfortable while watching the Cubs lose 4-0. Fall is definitely in the air. The night was chilly and the home team didn’t give us much to jump up and down and cheer about to keep warm.
