As I photographed my way though last week, I realized that I was capturing a story of our family at this point in time, with a focus on just one color. This was pretty fascinating to me, because at the outset I didn't think of yellow as a dominant color in our home, and it isn't. It took some looking.
Typically these are the type of photos that would live on my hard drive (or flickr) and I would be fine leaving it at that, but when the visual biography began to unfold, I knew I wanted to do something with the collection. Two projects came to mind; this mini book is the first.
