randomized

passerby
taken on January 2015 (with a camera I don’t have anymore)

Like most photographers I shoot a lot more photos than I ever post or print. For years I didn’t cull the worst ones from my catalog thinking I’d eventually come back around to make something out of them. Eventually always seemed like never while the digital files just piled up.

So while I’m still shooting new work during the pandemic I’ve come up with a way to challenge myself to dive into depths of my photo library. Using random.org each day I’m generating a random date from the last 10 years. Then using the Lightroom CC search function I jump to that month and year, find a photo and then edit and post it. Its an interesting way to see what caught my eye in the past as well as mark the changes in Seattle since I moved back here in 2010.

The photo above came from January 2015 when I was wandering around Pioneer Square with my Fujifilm X100S, a great camera for street photos.

Keep looking for my new old photos on my Instagram and Flickr.
