    Some photographers and artists get a project such as this and run with it.  I knew an art professor whose favorite medium was photography.  He liked to give a semester assignment of a single subject project. For the whole semester, the student was to photograph nothing but the assigned subject material. Some I remember are shoe heels, eggs, underside of bridges, or like this one, an animal. He would also give as an assignment something more abstract. For example, stripes, mouse's eye view, fear, old, or young.

    There have been a number of videos made by taking one or two frames of a child each day of his or her life. I am on the fence as to whether that is a devoted parent, or just has a bad case of photographic OCD.

      I can see the wisdom in focusing on a single subject to shoot.  

      I checked your blog entry from Turley's site yesterday afternoon and you had over 80 comments!  Some of the last ones were pertaining to the bombing in Boston.  Seems you have found a new calling - not like you haven't already mastered enough other callings ;-)

      Enjoy your day.

        At the moment, there are 127 comments and growing.  Dr. Turley allows free wheeling discussion. There is no hide rating system. CT types and other trolls are not hidden or banned. If someone is an anti-medication, CT theorist, they have to defend themselves from some pros.  Some trolls have found, to their dismay, that arguing with my dear friend Gene H. is like arguing with Watson, the IBM computer. Those who dare to play online Scrabble with Blouise have discovered she seems to have memorized the entire Oxford English Dictionary. There is some serious brainpower over there. I am still in shock that Jonathan asked me to be a guest blogger, aka, front pager.

      I've seen some of those videos and have wondered the same thing. Of course, if I had kids I'd probably be on the bandwagon myself. And I can't help think how fortunate people are nowadays to have easy access to media tools for things like recording a child's growing up. When I was a kid all there was were film cameras, something way beyond my parents' budget.
