Decided to make my Leica M6 an everyday carry and see what turns out. Posting one photo per day a month delayed.

"The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own." - W. H. Auden

"The magic of photography is metaphysical. What you see in the photograph isn’t what you saw at the time. The real skill of photography is organized visual lying." - Terence Donovan

I’ve never liked the term “muse” because it feels so disingenuous or one sided to me. Its too often the false flattery an artist throws at a collaborator. I’m inspired by the people around me, and my love Julie most of all. People have called her my muse, and it’s always rang a bit falsely in my mind because neither in the current meaning of the word, person who seems to inspire work, or the Greek version, a diety that knows all and actively pushes you to create art, quite fits. Julie is my partner. The vast majority of our relationship is unphotographable and consequently it appears her role is inactive; but she is the other half of my mind. The counter weight to straighten out my mind when a good idea goes too far and becomes a bad one. She’s the push when I feel like nothing is going the way I want and I need a kick in the pants. She’s half of my mind and all of my love. The idea of a person that inspires you to create art is too fleeting. She’s not my current inspiration, or new obsessions. She’s my lady. My love. My partner.

Howdy! 

Ive decided that I am going to be collecting the full 365 Days of Leica into a book for myself, but I wanted to sample the waters to see if any of you lovely people on board this ride would be interested in a book of the full 365 Days of Leica?

"Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle." - Annie Besant
