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 9 - 1/9/2011

Today has been such a cold and dreary day; this photo seemed to capture this dreariness so well.  It's kind of strange that when I took this picture, although it was definately cold, the sun was actually shining brightly through the clouds.  Anyway, I pointed my camera up through the trees and clicked the button; I never expected to get this effect.  I thought it was kinda cool!  (I actually started the day trying to get a picture of a bird's nest.)


  1. Another 365er! I have started my first challenge too. Feel free to check out my blog. http://throughaphotographerseyes.blogspot.com/

  2. Looks a bit like a web, I like the simplicity with just brances against the sky
