  1. He died a month after he was married? Tragic. :(

    amazing story!
    And yes it is sad. That's the only way it could have end though...

    Um...how do I respond to this?

    That's really, really interesting. It's been done by a few other people but not like 30 years.

    Pretty remarkable.

    I just went to the website that shows all the pics, and decided to look at the day I was born.

    I laughed.

  6. JEEZ!! That website set off and lit up my antivirous software like the Vegas strip :eek:

    Wow. There's really something to be said for being disciplined with your art. Also I have the same birthday he did.

    Crazy and cool. Kind of reminds me of that character in the movie "Smoke". He took a picture at the same time on the same street corner every single day and created photo albums of it.
  10. I did the same! Mine wasn't quite so funny as yours is though! :smug:

    Just goes to show... if you sort through enough internet boogers you can eventually find a real gem.

    That's really cool... and quite sad. But, if it was something he stuck to 'til his dying day... it musta been something he loved, no?


    My birthday.

    Amazing. I doubt that he even dreamed that his archive - or life! - would get such publicity.

    That makes me feel sad. But at the same time I wonder how he must have felt to have died knowing what a great accomplishment he had made by being so disciplined in his art. People like him that are 200% committed are the reason why we continue to have great art, IMO.

    Sad but interesting.

    With digital, you don't need poloroid anymore, but it centainly has a quality to it you can't get any other way.
