Assignment: Take a photograph an hour for 24 hours.
Begin chapter Four.
Above is the video of the 24 hour event that took place from 12 pm to 12 am yesterday. I set up the camera so that it would take a photo every four seconds and play it back at 15 frames a second. You are essentially watching a day of my life in 20 minutes. There is no sound and the quality is shitty, but it’s fun to watch as I slowly fall apart over the course of the prompt.
Although the images were posted once an hour I feel it is hard to get a grasp on how ridiculous this was. I had about 20 minutes to plan and set-up the shot, 10-15 minutes to actually shoot, and then 20 minutes to edit. I also lost a lot of time having to upload all of my photos each hour, which gave me time to write the incoherent babble for each post and chill for a second.
I am proud that I was able to stay up for more than 38 hours (a first for me) and complete this prompt. Not to be an ass but I think some of the photos are pretty damn good for the amount of time I had to spend on them.
For those of you reading this after the fact, the next 24 photos were shot, edited and posted within their hour. You are also viewing the project backwards.
I will be revisiting this video later in the month and recording a directors cut type commentary over top of it. That new video will replace this one, but until then I advise you to throw on Pandora to your favorite station or play the Benny Hill theme on loop, up to you.
I will be addressing the future of this blog and my life in another post once I cool off a bit.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me out over this past year, I’m looking at you Michelle. It has been an experience.
Happy New Year.

Expect a real writeup once I am coherent
Photo 23. Pocket Watch
I like to think that when this project is done my pocket watch will give me super time powers.
I’m not sure if it’s apparent at this point but the type of work I enjoy doing most seems to have a time fetish. Michelle got me this watch for Christmas to go along with my Lego train set and it was a perfect fit, I have been carrying it around everywhere since I got it.

F is for friends who do stuff together
U is for you and me
N is for anything at anytime at all up here on the fluffy bed.
Photo 21. Magic
It was difficult to capture the feeling of the game. The card art is fantastic but besides that there really isn’t much to show.
Photo 19. The Ring
Michelle was recently given a ring by her Grandmother. It is absolutely stunning so I used all the skills that Len taught me to shoot it up.
Photo 17. The Menagerie
Photographed the two animals that rule the upper levels of the house, Oliver and Jake.
Photo 16. A portrait of a friend
Dave dropped by and I grabbed a shot of him on the porch on with Jake.

Captains log 12:45 pm:
I am on the other side. This new world is a strange place, I for some reason feel the need to snap at everyone around me. I pray it is just my body getting acclimated to the new atmosphere and not something more sinister.
