16-01-01 Early Morning New Year’s Day

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” – T.S. Eliot

I truly do not understand quite why we fetishize the New Year the way we do but it is a tradition of very long standing among seemingly most human cultures, so there you are.

12-13-13 Working Again

The internet is back – at least today – while it has been down I started working my way through the archives again. Time to remove some failed images and discover ones I missed the first time. I shot this before I actually started the Quotidian Hudson project, while I was in testing mode. I don’t know why I buried it in the files. I pulled it out today and said, h’mm. I think I like it.
