I’ve published an album of all of my WIRR (Weekly Image Rich Ruh) photos.  

WIRR 2008 May1

The rules, in case you have forgotten, were as follows:

  1. The photo must be taken during the week- weeks start on Monday and end on Sunday.
  2. The photo must be taken by Rich.
  3. Any subject matter is acceptable.
  4. There are no quality standards, although obviously I’ll do my best.
  5. Equally obviously, on weeks when I don’t take an interesting trip, I’ll take a lame photo and try to pass it off as a work of art.
  6. I’m not above using digital manipulation in fulfillment of rule #5.

The goals were to take more pictures, and publish more to my blog.  I succeeded on both accounts-

  • In 2008, I shot 3714 photos, up from 2090 the previous year.  The numbers don’t tell the whole story, though, as I got much better at deleting photos in 2008.  The actual number of photos shot in 2008 was in reality much higher.
  • In 2008, I made 100 blog posts, up from 90 the previous year.  Five of the posts in 2007 were caused by a limitation of blogspot on how many photos can be included in a single post.  So again, the difference was more significant than the numbers suggest.

The WIRR project will continue in 2009.  Stay tuned for more!
