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!
Phyllis (Sista #2 as I call her) and I love to go to Dick Russell's for their famous hamburgers and onion rings (they are fabulous!). So, tonight I called to ask her what she was doing for dinner and we met up for burgers. Before we left, we posed for a picture with the wooden bear, since I never leave home without my trusty camera in tow. Unfortunately, the picture wasn't as clear as I'd like for it to have been (that seems to happen when the light is low, even with a flash--I've got to figure out what's going on with this camera), but I couldn't resist posting the pic anyway--the colors were great, and besides--it's a pic of Sista #2.
