You know what keeps me sane here in Houston? Not much. But I found something recently: the Project 365 group on Flickr. It’s a simple concept: take one picture every day and post it to the group.
Participating has been a surprising amount of fun so far, despite the short distance I cover during a given day; I live 1 km from work and I walk the same route every day, three times a week I go for a run, three times a week I go to the gym, once a week I go to the grocery store. Within those boundaries I only take my camera with me to work and back, so I have about a 1 km stretch twice a day along Space Park Drive to find a shot that moves me. I have not been disappointed so far. By looking for a view to share with the Project 365 group, I have to keep my eyes open every day along a well traveled trail — the kind of trail that would, generally, fail to keep my attention. Now the street has my full concentration. By transitive property, a little bit more of life has my full concentration. Through small, insignificant steps, I will extract myself from these doldrums yet.
So. Here are the photos that I took during week 2009-W02:
And, as a special New Years bonus, here are the other four photos from the first week in January:

Also: I’m testing WordPress Flickr plugins on this post. See
