At the beginning of 2021, I rather impulsively decided I was going to embark upon a daily photo project. "Photo a Day," "Photo Diary," "365 Project" -- different photographers have many different names for the practice of making an image with intent every day for a year; often, they impose rules upon themselves of adhere to a prescribed set of prompts, guides, or restrictions regarding the content or form of said images. My project was undertaken without any such premeditation, its form stumbled upon organically.
