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.

Elias Nour

Elias Nour (1914-1993) began exploring Stone Mountain, near Atlanta, when he was ten years old. By the time he was thirteen, he knew the mountain so well that he was able to rescue a hiker who had slipped partway down the steep side of the mountain. Over the years, he rescued over thirty hikers and received a Carnegie Medal for heroism. At some point, he carved his name into the mountain.

I forgot my camera when I climbed Stone Mountain today; this picture was taken on my cheap cellphone.
