June Twentieth Two Thousand Ten.
Tomorrow is the Northern Summer Solstice; at exactly 7:28 a.m. in Hong Kong the Earth’s axial tilt will be at its closest to the sun at the Tropic of Cancer, 23° 26′. This is effectively the longest day of the year for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere in terms of hours of daylight, though it is less obvious to those of us hovering closer to the equator. I began this project on the Summer Solstice of last year, and to look at the year now, with a single photo to represent each day (not necessarily always a representative photo) the scope of the year is somehow as it should be: highs and lows in subject matter, technical merit, composition, experience and emotion are all evident.
In the end, I suppose that is what each passing year offers us, and I am thankful to have had one more.
