And so begins my sixth year of doing this photography thang. Oh my! For this go-around, I've dropped the '365' since I'm only doing approximately 100 photos per anum. Seems enough for the fairly simply life we lead here in the suburbs. Now if I were in a city, well, the mind boggles. It really does.
As always, I start with media.
Thursday October 1, 2015_September reading_I read little obviously, although I finally finished The Daily Book of Art, a small tome put together by ten authors covering ten topics including Art 101, Philosphy of Art, Art through the Ages, Profiles in Art, A Picture's Worth 1000 200 Words, Art From the Inside Out, Art Around the World, Unexpected Art Forms, Artistic Oddities, and finally, Step-byStep Exercises (not a one of which I did). I enjoyed this, looking forward to reading a new page each morning, The second book, The Aspirin Age, is 22 essays, written in 1949 about American going-ons between 1919 and 1941 and mostly, but not always, by journalists. Titles include The Timely Death of President Harding, Huey Long: American Dictator, and The Night the Martains Came.Anyone wanting, in a very entertaining way, to learn more about the American psyche should give this book a look.
Saturday October 10, 2015_While I over-night dog-sat these four critters, from left Zeke, Autumn, Tehon, and Lady Bean Sprouts, most commonly called Bean, the loveliest dogs imaginable, Lauren was, coincidentally, sitting Ozzie and Batman right next door!!! We did dinner :)
Sunday October 18, 2015_For a paper I had to write for my 20th Century Art Class, I needed to visit a museum. I chose the Cantor, associated with the Stanford campus, where I chose one painting, Jasper Johns's Land's End, to write about. How I did I don't know as we don't get grades until the end of the semester, mid-December.
