Hi, I’m Jim Reed. I’m an accountant, attorney, and amateur photographer. More importantly for this site, I just recently passed my 39th birthday. That of course has me thinking about my 40th. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not overly concerned with my age. But I did think I ought to do something to memorialize the big 4-0. I mean it only comes around once, right?
So this project was born. Photos to 40. Starting on my 39th birthday I will be making a photo a day and posting it here.
What do I hope to accomplish?
On one hand I hope using my camera on a daily basis for a year will help me improve my photographic skills.
On the other hand I hope the challenge of finding an interesting subject to shoot every day will give me an opportunity to reflect on the things I do in daily life.
On the other hand (yes, I know that’s three hands!) the project might just be fun.
