79: fifteen hundred saturdays

Helen Cherry at age 20, pencil, 2 3/8" x 3 1/16"

Helen has been an avid commenter on my blog for a while now- much appreciated Helen! She was kind enough to forward me a few photos of herself including this beautiful and introspective capture of herself at age 20.  I thought it was fitting to choose this one, as her blog touches by nature on aging and life;  it is a project called 1500 Saturdays, in which she has committed to chronicling what happens on- that’s right- the next 1500 Saturdays of her life.  If you’re doing the math in your head that’s almost 29 years- certainly one of the most prospective challenges I’ve seen in a personal blog!

Helen authors a second blog called Helen’s Photomania Blog– check it out & say hello!

This is portrait 79 of 100.

Thanks for visiting!

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh.. Thank you so much …how exciting ..it’s very strange to see a drawing of yourself when you were young, particularly as I look NOTHING like that now ( feel free to argue that point everyone 😉 ) and it’s given me an idea for my 1500 Saturdays blog for tomorrow… when I will share this link if I may 🙂

    It has been an absolute pleasure following this blog Scott. I have only been in the blogosphere since the end of October last year and have enjoyed the camaraderie immensely. I look forward to the rest of your 100
    Helen ( only 1 l 😉 )

    Thanks, didn’t know that Helen has another blog. I’ll check it out.

  5. […] People who commented on his project early on were in… I was cheeky (surely not! ) and emailed him a couple of photos and he picked a B&W one of me taken when I was about 20 and yesterday I was his number 79. You can see the full post here […]

  6. WOW!!! That is such an amazingly beautiful picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! keep up the good work!

    I feel like I’ve just been punched in the face by personality! Great portrait! I really like the idea of Helen’s personal challenge as well! Our blog was also born in October… happy three months!
