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 5 - 1/5/2011

Today was my first day back at work, and I wanted to capture a picture that said "Spring Hill" or presented my work/office.  I also wanted to think about taking a good photo, which was a little harder since I have forgotten some of what that even means.  It was a dreary day outside, which didn't help my picture taking efforts as a newby photographer.  I took pictures inside and outside, but I still am not sure that I accomplished much.

Anyway, here is my attempt at Day #5.

SHC - Lucey Admin Bldg w/Cupala

My poor withered plant that hadn't been watered since I left for Christmas break.

SHC logo in the Rotunda - normally black/purple and white, but not under this evening light.

SHC - Lucey Admin Center and Quadrangle
I took several other pics, but didn't think they were worth publishing (the jury is still out on these :-) ).  Normally, I will only publish one photo per day, but I was trying to get a feel for the who, what, when, and where, kinda thing.  Ya know what I mean?
