So, three years of taking a picture every day. Wow.
I suppose it's fitting that the greatest skill I learned applied to today's photo. It's difficult to be creative when you're not in the mood. Tonight, I was exhausted, and wanted to crawl into bed at 8pm (it's been a really long week). I forced myself to drive downtown to Los Angeles and find some interesting place to photograph at 9pm. I just wasn't feeling it. I think the real measure of an artist is the ability to create at any time. And I think, after 1095 photos every day, that I'm a bit better at it.
Thanks to everyone who commented, viewed, posed, and supported me through taking 1095 photos. Every photo from year 3 can be seen on the map. If you're feeling nostalgic, check out Photo-a-Day Yr. 1 (where it all started), and Photo-a-Day Yr. 2.

Behind the food court at Azusa Pacific University is an art gallery. You'd only find it if you were looking for it... or if you were looking for the weight room... or restroom. There's some incredible work. Here's one piece.
Tomorrow is going to rock. Photo-a-day Year 3, Day 365. I'll be downtown in Los Angeles. Yippee.

I'm slowly beginning to get used to my extension tubes. I've discovered a few things.
Photo Tip #7:
My 50mm f1.4 lens is difficult to use with extension tubes. My 18-200 lens is much easier to focus with with extension tubes. I think it's because the aperture is lower (higher?). The 18-200 lens is a f5.6, so it's way easier to focus. Remember with extension tubes, you can focus much closer. I was about three inches away from this shoe. Very cool.
