Everyday Adventures

12 of 12: An Everyday Story

For a several years, my friend and photographer Amy Gretchen has completed a project she calls “12 of 12.”  Twelve photos taken on the twelfth of each month that together tell the story of that day.  And this year, I decided to join her.

At first I wasn’t sure whether it made sense to do this.  Many times the 12th falls on a work day with me at work and the little man at school.  Surely that doesn’t make for a very exciting story.  But as Amy reminded me when I mentioned this, the stories of these days are just as important to capture and remember.  So this month, even though the 12th fell on a work day, I decided to play along.

But as it turned out, the day did not go as planned.  Instead of a day in the office, it was a dreary day spent juggling emails, phone calls, and a little boy with an eye infection.

    I’m glad you decided to play along today after all, especially because it didn’t end up being what you expected. I love the moments you captured and that you did your collage b&w. Looks fantastic! Hope his ear infection passes quickly.

    Oh poor fella and juggling mama! Hope he is better soon. I had a pretty mundane day and would never have recorded as much of it or posted without this project. Useful to really capture the everyday.
