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 – Long and Dark May it Wave

This is the set I’d planned to do last Friday – women with long dark wavy hair. It’s hard to make a distinction between wavy and curly so I apologize if it’s a mixed bag but I try.

Daily Dozen – Women in Hats

I can’t believe I haven’t done this set before because I have millions of pictures of women in hats. Women have a much wider array of hat styles than men do and I’ve tried to show some of those in this set. I don’t have much more to say except that I hope you’ll enjoy the photos. You might notice there are 13, it’s the baker’s dozen bonus!

Daily Dozen – Men I’ve Worked with Over the Years

The other day I did a set of women I worked with, today I decided to turn things around and look at some of the men I’ve worked with over the years. As I mentioned in the other set, my work has meant most of my colleagues have been men and my interest in photographing faces is a fairly new phenomenon so the pool of images available to me is limited. That said, I was easily able to find 12 photographs. As I think about it, I do have a history of photography faces that predates this project. Digging up and scanning some of those photos might be a project for some weekend this summer. In any case, here are 12 men I’ve worked with over the years.

Daily Dozen – People I’ve known for more than 20 years

I was listening to Bob Wills this morning on my way in to work. The first time I heard him was in 1989 and boy was that music fun. Wendy and I drove cross country that summer to move from Boston to San Francisco and we must have listened to the tape of his 24 greatest hits a hundred times. That was just about 23 years ago now. It seems much more recent than that. While I was thinking about that trip I thought of the friends who saw us off and the friends who welcomed us to California. That got me thinking about friends in general and made me wonder how many friends from 20 or more years ago I might have photographs of. The search led to this set. I’ve gone with people I’m not related to by blood or marriage. At some point I’ll do a family set. Not today though.

Daily Dozen – Men with Hats and Glasses

Today’s set is a silly set. A set that makes no sense. While looking and thinking about the theme this is what struck me. Some are old, some are new (but not too new). Some time I should do a hat census to see how many of each hat style I have. I suspect the baseball cap is number one, followed by the knit, then the flat cap. I’ll need to look into it. For now though, here are men wearing glasses and hats of all sorts.

Daily Dozen – Women Who Dole Out Drinks

Most of the women in this set are bartenders but there are a couple who are waitresses at bars. My wife and I go to Legal Seafood pretty regularly and one of the bartenders is a big reason why. It’s funny but there’s no picture of her in this set. Maybe we’ll stop by tonight and I’ll see if I can’t get one. If I do many I’ll add it to this set, but in the meantime, enjoy!

Daily Dozen – Men Wearing Necklaces

It’s safe to say that guys in the 21st century have gotten the short end of the accessory stick. When I did a set of women wearing necklaces recently there were so many photographs from which to choose. Today, not so much. It hasn’t always been the case though – think of all the great jewelry found in the tombs of kings and pharaohs. Alas those glory days have largely passed now. There are a few keepers of the flame though and here are 12 that might rekindle the look again!

Daily Dozen – Women with Their Hair in Motion

There’s something very cool about a picture that captures dynamic motion. (I suppose all motion is dynamic, but what I mean is that shows it in a way that’s easy to appreciate. Hair is an obvious place to look for motion and I was thinking about it this morning and wondering how many shots I have of women whose hair is moving in some way. It turns out there were quite a few. There were several of dancers for Beats Antique, a few of people running, some of people in the wind and a couple of people singing. I’m not going to say that the motion in every one of these cases is dramatic but it’s there if you look.

Daily Dozen – Madam, I’m Adam

While considering today’s set my friend Adam came to mind. Actually, that’s only half true. For some reason the palindrome “Madam, I’m Adam” popped into my head. Clearly it was a sign that today’s Daily Dozen should feature Adam. He and I met five or six years ago at a Social Media Club event on Second Life at the Harvard Club on Mass Ave in Boston. Unless my memory fails me, it will have been May 29th, 2007. For whatever reason, Adam and I hit it off and have been friends ever since.
