If you follow my thread on Instagram at all, you know I started this self-imposed portrait project on the 1st of October. The idea was that I would shoot a portrait every day, and post it. I’ve stuck pretty well to that, though I have learned that despite my better intentions it is difficult for a recluse/hermit/anti-social/introvert/misanthrope like me to engage with someone in such fashion every day, especially since to make it work I need to hit up the occasional stranger. So I’ve pulled in a shot prior to October here and there as ringers, and I’ll certainly continue to do that. For those who aren’t in the loop on this thing, here are the first batch of photos now that we find ourselves (already!) at the mid-point of October. A couple of them I really like.
