March 1, 2019 — an opportunity to take stock and note that the #1 item on my list of New Year’s resolutions — to commit to a project of photographing every day until the end of January (entitled #maproom) — resulted in being so inspiring that I doubled my return. Alas, originally inspired as I was by the brilliance of the light that streams in during the early Winter it is time to face the reality that, as it does every year, the sun has moved on.
The good news is that, after over 2,600 images made, I have over 100 selects — explorations in close-up tabletop photography while using existing (i.e., constantly shifting light) and coming up with compositions and/or word ideas on the fly can prove quite the challenge.
Yet, while there always will be something going on in the Map Room, the time for the next photo project has come. Fortunately, ideas are already formulating. If nothing else ONE assignment is obvious: to compile the selected images into a book/calendar/set of prints, etc, which will include, enticement/enticement, a few images not yet posted. Therefore, I humbly implore you to stay tuned.
