A Day In the Life

I belong to an online community of professional photographers called the Digital Wedding Forum (DWF for short). DWF members are photogs all over the world and the professional spectrum -- some are big time, famous photographers and others are bringing home the bacon on a more local scale like me. I get a lot out of the forum: friendship, camaraderie, opinions (lots of them!), technical advice, and most of all, inspiration.

Last year someone on the DWF came up with the brilliant idea of doing a "Day In the Life" photo project; on a specific day, members were to take snapshots of their life and surroundings and submit them to the forum. The photos were then integrated into a fantastic slide show. Of course on the proscribed day I completely forgot to participate, so I missed the boat. Thank goodness the project was repeated on Monday, November 3rd!

A lot of really cool photos were submitted! The only rule was that the photos were not to be "professional" -- they had to be personal images documenting your day on November 3rd. Many thanks to Chris Mann of Tropical Imaging on Turks and Caicos for putting this together! Here's the link to the slideshow -- (look for my three images!): http://www.islandmann.com/shows/dwfnov08/ Enjoy!
