So, last year I started a Project 366 on January 1st, to take a picture every day of the year, trying many different kinds of photography in order to see things in ways that I might not otherwise notice or pay attention to, improve my skills and just have fun. I began with bursting enthusiasm and a full intent to follow through for the entire 366 days of the year. I was having a blast trying out so many cool new techniques I'd see in photography articles, or tutorials. My family gradually became accustomed to seeing me contorted in very strange postions on the floor, the ground outside, on top of kitchen countertops, playing with water, wine, food, dice, playing cards...you name it. I got them involved on many occasions, and even my cats began to ignore my camera pointing in their direction.
Well I made it through May and then life got in the way. Not that I wasn't taking pictures mind you, I was taking them pretty much daily, but most of them were for my job at the golf academy, weddings, senior shoots, family sessions etc. and keeping up with my Project 366 postings on Flickr, Facebook etc. just got pushed aside.
So this year I decided to try something a little more manageable....I hope anyway, by doing a Project 52, one photo a week. It's highly unusual for me to take just one picture a week, but at least the pressure to take a "Fantastic" picture every day will be lifted. I'm excited to begin this new photographic adventure of 2013, and I hope you follow along on my journey. You'll notice I began with chocolate, my beloved favorite treat. A very sweet way to begin the new year. Happy New Year everyone!
