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!
Although today is my sister's birthday, I realized that somehow I didn't get a pic of her. I think it's because we all got together at her house for a family cookout and she was flitting around here and there. However, my son Clint and his girlfriend Stephanie were down from South Carolina. Don't they make a cute couple? Stephanie is a really sweet young lady, and we had a great time visiting with her. It was also great to see my son.
Family get togethers are great and we had plenty of food!
