Last June we featured the 1 Year + Dictionary + Photography project by local photographers Heather Oelklaus, Carol Dass and Monica Escalante.

The project was this: pick a random word from the dictionary ever single day of the year in 2009 and take a photograph of something inspired by that word. The photographs were then posted each day (mostly) to www.camerakarma.blogspot.com.

The project ended on Decmber 31, 2009 and we decided to check in with the three photographers to see what they learned and thought about along the way. The names, words and dates along with their reflections are in the captions beneath each of the photos.

(Thanks, as always, for your lovely and thoughtful comments below or to: thebigsomething@krcc.org. Cheers!)
