My name is Henry. I’m just an ordinary guy. I grew up in suburban Maryland with my three brothers and I still live in suburban Maryland, now with my wife (and when I started this, my daughter, but she’s grown up and moved out). As you might gather from this blog, I enjoy taking pictures. I’m not a photographer by trade and if I were, we certainly wouldn’t live as well as we do. Still, I take my camera with me wherever I go and use it fairly often. As for subject matter, it’s pretty much whatever I come across. I like being outdoors and I particularly like small things, so a 100mm macro lens is on my camera most of the time. Flowers, insects, and landscapes are probably my primary subjects but I’ve been known to take people pictures now and then. I’ve also done a little traveling over the years and I hope to post some old pictures here from time to time, as I scan slides, mostly from the 80s and 90s. At this point, writing this as I begin, I really don’t know what direction this blog will take. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
On January 1, 2011 I posted my first picture in my Project 365 (on Facebook), taking at least one photo a day for a year. After that I continued, posting them here. I’ve posted some of that first year here, as well, but I never finished. Maybe I will at some point. Ten years later, I had managed to take at least one photographs every day for 3,652 consecutive days, taking over 180,000 photographs. After December 31, 2020 I decided to stop the “at least one a day” thing, but I still post photos here as I take them. I hope you enjoy at least a few of them.
Mostly for my own reference, I’ve kept a log of the banner images used on the site on the Past Site Banners page.
