When Trish announced her idea of Day in the Life for bloggers, I was intrigued but cautious. Does anyone want to read about my daily schedule? Get up, go to work, come home, talk/argue with my kid, go to gym, eat, and sleep. Repeat. Then I read about this interesting photography project by Jason Travis called Persona in Portraits and Pictures of Their Essential Everyday Items on PetaPixel and was inspired.
The project began back in November 2007 when Travis decided to get to know his friends better. He wanted his camera to capture not just what people see when they look at his friends, but what they don’t — the things carried around constantly but normally tucked away from view.
What a fantastic way to get to know people better!
I’m going to tweak Trish’s idea and the photographer’s (check out more photos on his blog) to make my Day in the Life all about my Essential Everyday Items. Here’s something I realized: I have way fewer essential items than I thought I had. These are the possessions that I use on a daily basis during the winter and on a work day. I carry some in my purse, have them on my desk, or use them when at home.
Also these, but I wasn’t putting them on my kitchen table.
So, what do you think my day is like from these photos? What do these items say about me?
