Man Sketching in Uzès

2-3 years without a miss!

Publishing a new photo every day is really hard! 4-5 years ago I would miss 5-10 days out of the year, but I think I’ve been pretty solid for the last 2-3 years. Sometimes, I miss the midnight deadline that is self-imposed, but I always get one up before the following midnight. But, it’s no problem, really… obviously I enjoy doing it! :)

Daily Photo – Man Sketching in Uzès

After spending the day walking around the old market, I started to walk back to where I started. Weaving through small alleys, I would occasionally enter larger courtyards. In one of them, I saw this man, sitting on a step, and sketching the scene.

When I took the photo, he looked up and gave a little smile, then went back to his business.

    Keep going Trey. I am enjoying the photos. Inspire me to step it up a bit on my own blog…

    Another great photo Trey! Your commitment and enthusiasm to this website is undoubted. I used to post everyday on my website but with many other commitments as well, decided to scale it back to 3 days a week to focus more on quality than quantity. You have to work with whats best for you but if I was making a living solely from photography, I’d definitely want to be back blogging everyday as well. Keep it up!

    Sorry Trey you can delete this comment and the first one. Didn’t mean to post it twice.

    Great grainy black and white. Reminds of the old tri-x film pushed about 4 stops in the darkroom. I’ve done this quite a few times when shooting without much ambient light and came up with prints that looks like this with lots of grain and high contrast. Of course this is a digital sensor at asa 200 at 1/8000 of a second so you obviously had plenty of light and wouldn’t have much grain (noise). Did you add a grainy texture? I love it.

    Nice photo Trey. I agree that it is very difficult to keep up the post a day routine. I started a site in March and have been successful keeping up since about the end of April. After so long, I don’t think I could stop. I would feel lost if I did not make my daily post.

    Great black and white photo, Trey. Thanks for sharing. Wow, today is the last day of November, time flies!! Have a great Wednesday :-)

    Great shot and amazing streak of posting everyday. I don’t think most people realize how much work it is unless they try it.

    I start my day by checking your website for the “latest” creation. On rare occasions, the photo goes up late. Then I start to wonder if something is wrong, but soon enough a new creation is posted and all is right with the world. Anyone can take a picture. Only few have “the eye” to extract the beauty of the scene and make it personal. Thanks for sharing your “eyes” with all of us.

    I really dig the treatment on this shot. B&W with that effect is brilliant on this shot.

    Ya’ know, when I did a photo-a-day last year, I couldn’t hang with it. I got something out everyday but my quality really slipped from what I was capable of.

    So, I think what’s really impressive about your ability to get a photo – a – day out is that you do it and you keep up such a high level of quality. Even if all of your shots don’t resonate with me, most do and they all resonate with someone :)

    This year, since I sort of refocused my efforts on “doing photography for me” (vs the inter-hordes) I said I’d do at least a couple photos a week. It kind of has me left with a surplus here at the end of the year, though. I’ve scheduled out 15 days in advance on my little squarespace site!

    Awesome capture Trey! Keep up the great postings – I couldn’t live without my ‘stuck’ fix everyday!

    Thank you Trey for your dedication to the photo-a-day. It’s why your website is a part of my routine. Every morning I check my email and your site before I get started on my days work. I tell people about your site when they ask what I’m doing taking pictures of poorly lit areas or shooting into the sun. They are always intrigued. I got my Brother-in-law hooked on your site over Thanksgiving.
    I learned of you 2 years ago from a nice Swedish computer programmer I met on an airplane, we were both flying home to Austin. I’ve since moved to California, but there’s just as much to shoot out here. And I’m not as sweaty here either.
    Thank you again for your dedication. The pic is great too by the way.
