I took several photos as candidates for the first photo of the project. Some images were intended to reflect the death and rebirth of the year, whereas others were attempts at getting photos of interesting subjects, or merely framing a fairly simple subject in an interesting manner. In the end I chose one of the first pictures I took, and one similar to an image already in my collection. The temperature was pretty much dead on zero, and thus formed a visual indicator of the beginning of the project, and the beginning of the year. Like all good tech geeks I’m counting from zero.
