About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 16 - 1/16/2011

Bridget, my sweet Pomeranian

I am late posting Day 16 because I have spent most of the past couple of days taking care of my mother.  My selection of photos is also limited because I can't get away from the house, so my choice of subjects is my mother, my dog Bridget and my boyfriend (who didn't really want to be a candidate lol) or the dead leaves and grass in my yard.  I took a cute picture of mother and Bridget, but unfortunately parts of it were not in focus. So, I chose this photo of Bridget.  She is such a sweet little thing, but in this pic, she looks like she's charging off on some larger-than-life mission.  Maybe she was; maybe she was going to keep mother company or was wanting me to let her go outside to do her business.

Maybe I'll get to venture out a little bit father today.  Praying that mother's day improves.  So far, it's not a good day.  If you believe in prayer, please say a prayer for her.  Thanks!

  1. I understand the lack of subjects. I always envy those 365ers who have small children ... something to capture every day. Oh well, we press on ... :)
