New Year, New Challenge


When I started this blog a few years ago I posted with some regularity. Barely a day went by when I didn’t post and I am sure I made at least one full month without missing a day. The process drove me creatively. It forced me to get out and shoot. To find fuel. To create.

Since that first year (maybe year and a half), I gradually drifted away from that regimen. 2016 was probably my low point. I went weeks without posting a single image. And I want that to change drastically in 2017.

So, here is the first new image of 2017. It is the first of what I hope will be a new image on the blog every day for the entire year. Not just a blog post every day, but a blog post containing a new image shot that day. I’ll have more details tomorrow, when I post my second image of 2017.

This January 1 image is sort of a resurgence of a series I started a couple of years ago: Lawrence Storefronts.

What is this, some kind of series?

Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
