Daily Practice 221/365

Title: "Exhibit 81.203 from Dr. Hammer's Museum of Curiosities"

As I made my way around the museum, photographing the exhibits, I had a chance to observe Dr. Hammer at his work. I would often find him poring over an exhibit with a powerful magnifying glass, making notations about the smallest detail, treating each piece with a loving devotion. He intimated that he was taking such meticulous notes as research for a comprehensive catalog of the museum, for which my photographs would be crucial. It was that knowledge that made me increasingly devoted to the work as the months passed.
