12:34 LA:NYC Photo Project, 3 January 2015, NYC

My college friend Gina and I recently met up during Christmas break and thought about working on a photo project.  Gina lives in Los Angeles and I’m here in New York City.

The concept is at 12:34pm my time (EST) and 12:34pm her time (PST), we will each take a series of photos, caption them, send them to each other and post both sets to each other’s blogs.  This is Gina’s blog, she has a great eye for composition:


The idea is to give people a visual of what they are seeing in their life at 12:34pm their time zone.  Granted, I could do my photos at 3:34 to match the exact time of LA at 12:34, but then I couldn’t really call my photos 12:34.  It’s not about doing something simultaneously, but doing something at a specific moment in time and documenting it.

I was inspired by a project my friend Joe Medina had for his photography students, and this is somewhat similar to that.  But I’m hoping this will be a continuing series.

So, we’ll be posting up some photos that will hopefully inspire you to create and share with others in 2015.

Enjoy the project.  Here’s the first post of 12:34 LA:NYC Photo Project

002Cleaning up my room, I noticed I placed my 2015 planner on two of my scarves. Is it a metaphor  to say  there will be lots of crazy patterns, adventures and fun in the coming year?
