Man Takes a Picture of Himself Every Day for 6 Years

Dec 19, 2007

Noah Kalina took a picture of himself every day for six years (and still going); above is all of the pictures put together into a time lapse. Now that’s diligence.

When I was collecting my own step data with a pedometer, I would constantly forget, and eventually, I just got bored with it. I think my interest faded because collecting one number per day wasn’t satisfying enough. This on the other hand, seems more personal, it takes a little less effort, and it only takes a second to take a picture, and like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. String them together and you get a story.

That’s probably why so many have sprung up on YouTube. It’s fun to watch your life flash before your eyes.

Even Homer Simpson did it.

How about you?

  • This is pretty cool. I have seen another one where a woman did the same thing, but I don’t think it was this long of a period. What was very distracting and took away from the visualization was the frequent background changes. The other one I saw was the same exact background each time, which makes it that much more powerful.
