WOWZA! It was more than 6 years ago that you all started visiting Butte Daily Photo with “Reflection in the alley North of Park Street” (such a creative title, I know).
It’s interesting to reflect back (yeah, I’m clever) on why it began in the first place, and why petered off in 2010, and why I’m just now starting to re-post to the blog.
Why it started it in the first place:
Because I was like, “You suck, Lisa. Why did you pay a crap-ton to go to school for this again if you’re going to let your camera collect dust?” Between October of 2007 and April of 2008 my shutter maybe had a count of 200 on it. Basically, I needed something to get me picking up my camera again. And so the affair with Butte Daily Photo began.
Why it petered off:
You know, the same excuse I’m sure you have for not doing things. Life. Marriage. Business.
Those little mini-people things we keep for 18 years.
Why I’m starting to post again:
Because I like it. No really, that’s it.
I kinda like it. I kinda like photographing something for just me. And if you like it too? That’s bonus points. There’s an inner hermit part of me that needs some time just by myself, wandering dingy alleys of Butte at 9 pm with nothing but my camera by my side (yeah, I’m that creep).
How often are you going to post?
Twice a week for 3 months. That’s right, that’s my commitment. Don’t scare me away with your “but the name is DAILY photo” BS. I’m like a freaked-out 26-year-old male and you’re the clingy girlfriend pushing marriage on me. I’m just not ready for that kind of commitment even after courting for 6 years. Give it a little time, maybe I’ll see the light. Or not. I don’t really know right now.
AND SO IT BEGAN:

Your Daily Dosage of Butte…the beginning
Reflection in the alley north of Park Street.
This blog is a daily photo blog of Butte, Montana. My goal is to keep my motivation and creativity up by forcing myself to take a photo a day…and one of Butte. Not just in my house, or in my car, OF Butte, not IN Butte…although I will have to be in Butte I think.
I would also like to keep out-of-towners in touch with their hometown of Butte.
So here it starts…
