Super busy today but not too busy for the Daily Dozen! It’s not a rocket science set though, men with messy hair!
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!
I was out today and ran really late in terms of putting today’s set together. A lot of people offered to help come up with the theme for the day but almost everything they suggested was something I’ve done in the past. It’s tough. I decided to look at men with fun faces and to limit myself to the more recent set of 1000faces. I hope you’ll enjoy these 12 men who look like they’re having fun.
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.
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!
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.
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
When I did that sculpted set the other day I looked at all my sets to see what other facial hair sets I might have done in the past. I assumed I’d done goatees because it’s the most common facial hair out there. It turns out it’s the ONLY facial hair that I haven’t included in a Daily Dozen. So strange. Today’s set remedies the situation. It’s only 12 photographs but trust me, I could probably do 120 without blinking an eye. In today’s set I’ve tried to capture the classic goatee (which technically doesn’t include a mustache) as well as the far more common goatee and mustache combo. If there are other really obvious sets I’ve missed let me know!
Every day is somebody’s birthday. If you wish everyone you meet a happy birthday you stand a good chance of being right at least some percentage of the time. I’ve been surprised by how many people I’ve photographed on their birthdays without realizing it. That’s what this set is all about – coincidental birthday photos. Since it’s Wednesday the set is a mix of men and women and I sure hope you’ll enjoy them. Sorry for being lame and not posting the past few days. Things happen.
