A Thing A Day

Various authors, Website, Feb 29, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The image above is in the back room of Cose Di Casa on Queen Street East, in Toronto. It is not for sale and it is not on display - it's something I was able to see while talking with Richard Cope, the owner of the shop. Experiences like this are the reason I have taken up photography. And this is something more people are experiencing as a part of their lives. For example, a website entitled a-thing-a-day was profiled in today's Globe and Mail. The participants create one thing and post it online. The result is not only a sense of accomplishment, but also community with other people who are doing the same. My own interest in the rare and unusual - and in particular the Roman - is what led me into Cose Di Casa. And it's also that same interest that leads me to do my own thing-a-day, a photo a day, something I am sharing with a group of people. If you look at the internet, you see this happening everywhere. Future generations will mark this time as the genesis of a remarkable renaissance.
