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 – 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.

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 – Guys with Goatees

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!

Daily Dozen – Men with Sculpted Facial Hair

Maybe that’s not the right term for this set? I’ve done big beards, scruffy beards, mustaches and sideburns but today I was looking at a face with a carefully quaffed beardish thing going on. This set is about guys who treat their faces as hirsute canvases, shaving and shaping their hair into a shape and pattern that’s just right. I’ve tried not to include too many men that have only one facial hair element (a nifty mustache for example) but instead wanted at least a couple of things going on. There are – as always – exceptions. Enjoy!

Daily Dozen – Ladies in Red

I was kind of surprised to see I hadn’t already done a set of women in red but it doesn’t seem like I have. It gets tough over time to remember all of the Daily Dozen sets. Pintrist has been really helpful. I can see all of the sets and figure out which ones I either haven’t done or haven’t done in a while. At some point I know I will repeat themes but I’m trying to make sure I don’t reuse the same photos too often. It gets tricky. I do have an evolving system that’s working pretty well. Going back and doing it retroactively is pretty time-consuming though. Such is life.

As I was saying, it was a bit odd that I hadn’t done a set of women in red. There are sets of women with red lipstick, men in red shirts, men with red hair and women with red hair. It’s a good color and I’m glad I’ve finally posted it. Enjoy.
