The One Day At A Time (Somewhere along the way) album was created to tell the story of the little things in life that we experience or witness, but may take for granted during our journeys in the worlds within and around us. As a documentary photographer, it is a way to regularly share simple and personal everyday stories with the general public through social media. The album was originally designed for Facebook, but since the start it has also been curated on Instagram as well as Twitter (both @kashishds) with the two hashtags that define the crux of the album’s spirit and what I think we should not overlook: #LittleThingsInLife #OneDayAtaTime.
