So goes the text on the back of my second photo book effort, Chickens, Anyone? It was a lot of fun in the making, and perhaps a bit hurried (well, definitely hurried) as far as the photography is concerned–a collection of snapshots documenting our family’s initial efforts at raising chickens in Hawaii, and a good excuse to participate in Solo Photo Book Month 2009.

Solo Photo Book Month (sofobomo.org) is a DIY project to make a photo book in one month. All of the photos must be taken and the book laid out and processed into a PDF in 31 days. This is my second year participating in the event, along with many other photographers all over the world.

Last year I did square format B&W, so I was determined to do color and some sort of rectangular format this year. I chose to go all landscape, even though it meant passing on some good verticals I had taken. Also, last year was more of a series of portraits, and this year I was determined to have the book tell more of a story. I struggled to find something that would fit my tight schedule this year when the “chicken project”, which I’d had on the back burner, hit me as a good fit to dovetail with SoFoBoMo.
