On this site, I posted a picture (almost) every day, from December 3, 2010 to December 3, 2011. Only 16 days during that period are without pictures. All but two pictures were taken on the day of the post. Sometimes the daily picture represented the day in a larger way; sometimes it was just a picture. Since I posted so often, some pictures are more interesting than others.

After one year of posting a daily picture, I posted pictures less frequently - whenever I had something worth sharing.

After two years of more casual posting, I decided to once again post a daily (or almost daily) picture in 2014.

I'm not a photographer, and most of these pictures were taken with an inexpensive digital camera. A few were taken with a cellphone camera. Click on any picture for a larger view.

The Big Chicken

The Big Chicken, as every Atlantan knows, is a chicken restaurant which looks like, well, a big chicken. It's in Marietta, a suburb of Atlanta. It was built as an independent chicken joint back in the 1960's, but was taken over by Kentucky Fried Chicken. The machinery which caused the beak to move and the eyes to roll proved to be loud and unreliable, so those features didn't work for years, but KFC restored the building and replaced the works with more modern machinery back in the 1990's.

The Big Chicken is such a landmark that Atlantans use it as a basis for giving directions, as in, "Head north on Highway 41 and turn left at The Big Chicken."
