One hopes to learn something new or novel every day. Most days I’m fortunate for that to be the case. Often, when I sit down to put together the day’s Daily Dozen I notice something I hadn’t realized in the past. Today was no different. On Saturday I was at a graduation party and met several new people. One was a man with freckles and I decided that today’s set would be of freckle-faced men. What I learned as I put it together is that more women appear to have freckles than men. When I put together a set of women with freckles it was easy to find a dozen. Today’s was much tougher. Sure, I was able to find 12 but there was little margin for error.
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.
