- 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 19 - 1/19/2011
This is actually a photo taken on Day 17 because yesterday (Day 19) I was at the hospital or at work (without my camera) all day long. I even spent the night at the hospital with my mother so that perhaps she wouldn't feel so disoriented, so I was unable to capture any of that day's moments in a photo. I did take quite a few nice photos on Day 17, so I hope you don't mind me sharing one of them today. I didn't want to skip a day on my photo journey (although, technically I guess I did; but it was for a good reason!).
