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's another rainy day in lower Alabama. And it was quite chilly outside as well. The rain let up for a short while, and I ventured outside to walk Miss Bridget (my Pomeranian). While outside, I noticed that many of my plants had water droplets dangling from them. Naturally, I couldn't wait to go inside to get my sidekick--my Sony Cybershot. While outside I took pics of several plants. The one that looked the best with the naked eye didn't come out at all through the lens of my camera. I must have taken 20 or so shots and came up with a few that I really liked. It was very hard to decide which one to post, so I picked the best ones of each plant.
