Owen Year Five: His first 1,826 days in 3,845 pictures

Owen has turned five. Here is a 56,000 x 42,000 (2.35 Gigapixel) mosaic, composed of 3,845 unique images, which captures his life from the moment he entered the world through his 5th birthday party.

Similar to the Owen Year One mosaic, I used his Year 5 picture as the source image.

Owen reached the big 5 yesterday. He starts and ends each day like he is leading an epic adventure. He has a voracious curiosity about the world and can recall things he has observed with precision. He is an astute explorer, fascinated by the most obscure elements and with drawing connections in a manner many kids his age overlook. He is creative with words and sounds and enjoys coming up with new ways to interrelate words to create new songs. He has an inimitable sense of humor that allows him to “get” jokes and concoct shenanigans that make him a lot of fun to be around.

Owen likes being active and continues to participate in multiple extracurricular activities including yoga, karate, soccer, swimming, and learning Mandarin. We have traveled extensively as a family domestically and this year we made it to Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan.

He’s still into superheroes on occasion but now he is really, really into Star Wars having watched all six episodes over the last year. His favorite characters are Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and General Grievous. Obi-Wan Kenobi is the only character on the light side of the Force whom Owen respects since, ironically, Obi-Wan battles all his favorite dark side characters amassing a very respectable win-loss record.
