Daily Dozen – Back to School

August is a tough month. It certainly is as far as posting photos goes. Every year I see a big dip in my photographic productivity in August. Part of it is that I’m on vacation and even though I take pictures I don’t do a great job of processing and posting them. That trend continued in 2012. But summer is over and it’s time for everyone to buckle down and get serious again. That’s why today’s theme is back to school.

As a rule, I don’t photograph kids (I do, but I don’t post them any where) so it’s harder to say who’s a student. Thankfully, since I talk a bit with everyone whose picture I take, I know that all the faces in today’s set are students (or at least were when I took their photograph). Obviously none of them are on their way to middle school – over even high school. These students are mostly in grad school but it still counts!

Daily Dozen – Men in Uniforms, Costumes or Other Fancy Attire

I was going to do a set of men who are big fans of Harry Potter but realized I don’t really have enough photos to sustain it. Instead, branching off that, I decided to do a set of images of men dressed in unusual ways. There are some fellows in costumes, some in uniforms, a few just bedecked with some small element that says, “hey, look, I’m having fun!”

Daily Dozen – Women with their hair to one side

Today I was looking at photos and the first one my eyes fell upon was of a woman with her hair pulled to one side. That became today’s theme. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped to find a dozen photos to fill the theme. With some hard work I was able to come up with 12 faces and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Daily Dozen – Dogs

Today’s set was going to be people with things – phones, bottles, harmonicas, etc. – but as I was putting the set together I noticed I had a number of pictures of people and dogs. Or even just dogs by themselves and decided to do that instead. Since I was a kid I’ve always had a dog or two. Sure, there were a couple of sorry windows here and there when that wasn’t the case but they’ve thankfully been few and far between. Here are a dozen dogs I hope you’ll enjoy.
