I dropped my iPhone in the toilet on Saturday.
And I had not backed it up in two months. I thought I was backing it up, but I was only downloading the photos. Doh.
Have I told you all my process for writing a Faces of ALI feature? I read someone’s whole blog. Every single entry. It’s the only way I can really immerse myself in their experience. It usually takes weeks to cover all of this ground and I take a lot of notes.
And, I had taken extensive notes for my next Faces of ALI portrait on THAT iPhone. The notes covered SIX YEARS of my subject’s blog.
Those notes are completely gone. I nearly lost my mind when I found out.
But all y’all: I think I have a photographic memory! For blogs. Is that a thing?
I rarely brag about anything, but I am going to totally brag ABOUT THIS!!!
I wrote the entire portrait today. I cranked The Smiths, and just powered it out. It’s funny that I matched my subject with The Smiths. It’s not necessarily her taste. (I don’t think?) The profile is in my brother’s pedantic copy editing hands. It will then go to the blogger. I hope she likes it. I hope she loves it. I hope I did her justice and honored her. She deserves it.
Any guesses who it is? That might be fun…winner gets, something fun! Those of you who know, I know who you are
