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.

Electric Bitters

Another antique bottle. "Bitters" was a variety of patent medicine with a high alcohol content. According to the label, Electric Bitters was "The great electric remedy" which "positively cures all diseases of the stomach, liver and kidneys; biliousness, general debility, fever and ague." Good stuff!

Waste Not, Want Not

This sign is along a hiking/biking trail in Avondale Estates, Georgia. They wanted to include a sign pointing the way to Decatur, the next town over. Unfortunately, they made the arrow point the wrong way. No matter - they used it anyway.

Girl Scout Cookies

I didn't take any pictures on March 20, so I took one the next day to represent the 20th. That was the day my Girl Scout Cookies arrived - a sure sign of Spring in the United States.

Cold Again

Cold weather has returned to Atlanta after a couple of weeks of false Spring. The Narcissus flowers pictured in my February 23 post aren't looking so good now.

Saturday, March 5, 2011


For the past three days, I have been sick, and haven't felt like taking pictures or doing much of anything else. I don't mind the lack of pictures - there's not much that I want to remember from these three days. This "red-flavored" Powerade sustained me when I couldn't eat - it will represent these three unfortunate days.

Our House

Since I posted a picture from my front porch yesterday, it only seemed fitting to post a picture of our little house in the city.
