Profile on a photographer

Profile on a photographer, originally uploaded by billaday.

I like taking pictures. I've noticed, since starting Year 3 of my photo-a-day project, more people around me are taking pictures. I'm not claiming credit (remotely) for my friends taking pictures, but I do believe that it's an infectious hobby. Here's Greg taking a picture of his keyboard.

I walked downtown in our small city to get my hair cut. On my way, I saw a crowd. Apparently, Santa came by for the tree lighting ceremony. Crazy.

Photo-a-Day Year 3 has officially begun! Take the time to check out my photoblog at . It's been revamped, and you can now subscribe to it.

The Haunted Mansion also revamps itself for Christmas, er, the Nightmare Before Christmas. Notice the parallels...

Subway tunnel

So, after going back and forth on 4 different shots, here is Day 366.

I had no set idea what I wanted this photo-a-day to be, but I did know that I had always wanted to go on the subway in L.A. After a couple hours shooting throughout downtown, I had forgotten all about the subway idea. Luckily, I stumbled upon a subway entrance at Civic Center that would take me back to Union Station (where I parked).

Once in the subway, I took many, many shots of ceilings and trains quickly passing. This shot turned out to be the best of the underground ones. A train is approaching, and its headlight backlit this guy.

Thanks to everyone who has been viewing, commenting, and supporting this Photo-a-Day project. The official photo blog can always be found here: .

Photo-a-Day year 3 has already begun. Look for a new Flickr set on Wed.

Thanks a lot leap year.

Today is day 365, but I'm not done. Tomorrow, day 366, is the official end of year II of photo-a-day. Since I finished work at 10pm, a nearby park is photo 365. Something in downtown L.A. is on the horizon for the big day.

So, it's day 364. Tomorrow is the big 365, basically. Since it was a leap year, I think I might need to call day 366 the final day. I dunno, though. Last year ended Dec. 10, and my new year began on Dec. 11. Maybe I'll just wait and see how good tomorrow's shot comes out...

We had a chance to meet a really pretty lady today. She let us take a photo with her. Such a nice lady... too bad she's in black and white.
