Daily Dozen – Men with Musical Instruments

It’s a really rainy day here in New York and I’ve been super busy. Lots of walking in the rain. I don’t mind until I sit down somewhere and realize how wet and tired I am. That’s where I’m at now. Wet and tired. I’m having a warm bowl of squash soup though and that’s helping.

But you don’t care about all of that, you want some photos and I have them. I was looking at photos this morning wondering what set to do. What I’ve gone with is men with musical instruments. At first I was thinking about men with any kind of object in their hands but that got too hard given my time constraints. Instruments proved to be way easier and I’m all about the easy!

With the warmth spreading through me, it’s time to post!

Daily Dozen – Women with Cleft Chins

I did a set of men with cleft chins and thought I’d revisit the theme with women today. Here’s something I noticed: fewer women seem to have cleft chins than men and for the most part their’s are more subtle than men’s. You’ll have to judge for yourselves.

Daily Dozen – Women and Water

A random idea today. Photographs of woman with water nearby. In some cases standing in front of a river, in others on a boat, in more with a water bottle at hand. I can’t say what led to this set but such is life. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the images.

Daily Dozen – Men with Sticks in Their Hands

Taking pictures of bands is a lot of fun. I love getting right up in front where it’s the loudest and shooting. Whenever I go back and look at my shots though I notice how rare it is to get drummers. They’re at the back of the stage and usually hidden behind their stuff. Today I decided to focus on drummers. I don’t have a ton of shots but I do have a dozen and here they are. Enjoy.

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 Round Glasses

A while ago I did a set of people wearing rectangular glasses, the official specs of the hipster set. Actually they’ve gone way beyond that crowd and are taking over the planet. That’s not to say there aren’t other styles out there and one of the most popular is definitely round. I spent a little time looking for round glasses in my photos and came up with a batch of them. It’s

Daily Dozen – Women with Short Dark Hair in Cambridge

It’s been six months since I started doing these Daily Dozen sets consistently. Sure, I’ve missed a day or two here or there but for the most part, every day between Monday and Friday has seen some new categorization of people. One thing I’ve learned is that what seemed specific in the past can become really general in retrospect. The set of women with short hair is a good example. It seemed pretty focused at the time but what counts as short? Why not look at different color hair in different styles? What about time of day? Time of year? Etc.

Live and learn I suppose.

Today’s set features 12 women with short dark hair. I haven’t looked at the month or time these photos were taken but I have limited them to Cambridge. It’s pretty narrow, which gives me much more flexibility over time. I hope you’ll enjoy the set.
