The Signal: Daniel Agee's “365"

The Signal is our collection of People, Sites, and Shows that are worth keeping an eye on.

It's not difficult to discern where Daniel Agee's passion lies. One visit to his site, "Photography, My Love" (yes, the name offers a rather large hint), will reveal that he gets his fix by taking pictures. Simple, gorgeous pictures.

I began following Agee on twitter last fall, and it was sometime in the first week of January that I first took notice of his new photo-a-day project for 2014, which he's appropriately named "365". The conceit is simple enough: no matter where he is, he posts at least one photo per day to the collection. Fortunately for us, this usually means a thoughtfully-captured and beautifully-edited image taken somewhere in Portland, Oregon. Not to mention some stunning shots from elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest.

While Agee's blog features many photosets that are all worthy of your attention, there's something about 365 that's special to me. I feel it captures the essence of the town of my birth, that I still proudly call home: this is Portland, the way that I too see it.

Bookmark the project and allow Daniel Agee to share his daily photo with you. Being prompted each day to stop and look at something authentic and thoughtful is a priveledge that is not to be taken granted.
