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!
It was a dreary, rainy day on campus, but the campus has so many beautiful buildings and scenes worth photographing come rain or shine. I wasn't able to get out during the middle of the day, but I was able to capture a few shots after I got off work, just before dark. The gardens near the Chapel and the old chapel itself are not only picturesque but it's a peaceful place with three or four benches where students, faculty and staff can go to eat lunch or just enjoy the scenary and pray. I haven't yet seen the inside of the chapel. I hope to take a look-see and perhaps get some photos to share with you soon.
