Happy New Year

Happy new year to everyone.

Once again, among my New Year’s resolutions are:

1. Get out a camera (any camera) and make a photograph (any photograph) every day.

2. Spend less time reading stuff on the internet and more time actually doing stuff (and maybe then writing about it on the internet).

Through these simple steps I hope to live a more ordered, better regulated life. With a dog/camera walk schedule for half an hour from now, I’m thinking I’m making good progress on that front. Hurray for me!

    Heaving read your post I am still wondering how comes that your resolutions are so darn similar to mine (let’s skip the dog thing, my daughters are nagging for years already to get one…)
    Yes, producing something substantial if possible every day seems a good way of going on, developing and attaining that equilibrium that makes the life for us and our next of kin full of joy and contentment.

    In this sense a A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you and your family.

    I think that resolution is a great one. The more I read your blog, the more I appreciate your work and your thoughts. Happy New Year!

    Thank you for your contributions to my 2008. One of the things that I will do in 2009 is continue to check here everyday for the latest offerings.

    I can’t disagree with your resolutions, Paul, but you have to admit that it’s damned hard to go take a walk with the dog when it 0F outside. My DAWG doesn’t want to stick her nose past the door frame. And blowing the new snow off my driveway yesterday morning was not a pleasant task considering the temp. So I sat in front of the computer working on my project to scan all my old 4×5 negs, and the TV to my right glowing with the bowl game of the moment. YEA! Go whover! May your coming year be good to you and yours, and especially your pup, Kodak. Onward.

    I’m resolving to take better care of myself this year, which means actually taking the time to do my projects, like organizing my photo library and learning photoshop better etc.

    And I agree with Frank–it’s hard to get motivated to get outside when it’s below ten degrees or so.
