Choosing the word was as easy as opening up the dictionary, closing your eyes, letting your finger fall wherever it may and whatever word your finger pointed to was the word for the day. Each day I awoke excited to see what the word would be for the day. My thoughts drifted to ideas on how to photograph each word. This project exercised my creativity and helped me become "friends" with digital photography. As I look through the year's images, I am reminded of what was happening in my life and what was taking place in the world around me during 2009.
