    What about some non alphanumeric characters?

    Ashraf,

    Love the long thoughtful response, thank you.

    1. Showing the framed photo was part sales pitch, it used to default to just the photo. But the other reason is that I want to give it some feeling of a tangible thing you can hold or that can be on a wall

    2) Absolutely possible to do some type of tap/hover interaction of all the data. There have been a few other options I've thought of but not really explored. I'm sure the site will continue to evolve.

    Love the additional feedback. My biggest struggle from the beginning was how to see the full calendar, then dive into a month, and then a single day, and navigating between. It may not be intuitive by clicking the months name brings you up to the month, and then year of the sunrise brings you back to the entire calendar.

    As of now, swipe interactions might be beyond my skillset, something I'd be happy to explore.

    I first shared this project earlier this year.

    Since then, the website has evolved quite significantly. I tried to address several ways of displaying 365 photos, a calendar, meta data, location data, and various musings.

    Outside of the morning walks and the photo editing, this has been a significant design project. Beyond the website it was trying to figure out a template for photo prints that can display some amount of data to give a photo context. The design of a database, design of a badge to be embossed.

    So many tools to make this thing happen. - Adobe Creative Suite - My camera - Snowpants - Hugo - Netlify - IMGIX - Dark Sky API - Flickr - Algolia - Google Maps API - Snipcart - And an endless flow of coffee

    Would love to hear your thoughts on laying out this data. One of my goals was that I've always wanted to create a website with zero images other than the content itself.

    Beyond all design, I hope you catch more sunrises in 2020 than you did in 2019.

    After all the "I" and "my" references, I am still looking for the page that says who Sumit is.

    Exactly my thought, I poured over the site to see what one of these profiles look like. Then I tried the chat box to ask, but that required an email.

    I see everything on the site is in first person, but I can't find on the site where to read about said person. Any reason for this Sumit? I wish I could read about the "I" behind many of the statements.
