This online shoebox contains random pictures, notes, whatever. I've been a professional writer-photographer for so many years now. It's a damn good excuse to carry a camera around.

Day 5
 

I decided to up the challenge by avoiding file photos and shooting fresh pics every day. It's not much of a challenge if all you're doing is digging into your hard disk, right?
