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 17 - 1/17/2011

I wish I knew the name of this bush, but I don't.  During the summer when it's in bloom, the bush has foilage of large green leaves with pink flowers.  My mother loves this bush.  We have tried to get a cutting off of this bush, but haven't had any luck replanting it. During the winter months, this bush takes on a whole new look--it looks almost like weeds.  Upon a closer look, the furry flower buds looked like a bunch of cotton balls full of bird seed.  It was a neat discovery.

  1. I love with how you can capture all the little details, that are not always obvious right away. I would love to see a picture later on when it's blooming:)
