New Challenge, New Blog

I've set up another blog for my 2012 challenge.  I plan on weekly this year, since it got really tough on my creativity to take a photo daily.  Please update your link to:

In the end, this was a fun way to force myself to use my camera.  I'll keep it up this year, with a slightly different focus.  I'll post as often as I can.

Thanks for following me...

31 Dec (I did it!)

Given the fun we had this year, I don't think anyone would have blamed me for quitting, but I didn't.  I used my camera every day in 2011.  Some of the pictures were horrid, but I have quite a few keepers.

I wanted to take a picture of the final sunset  of 2011, but the colors weren't as dramatic as I hoped (plus it got cold).  So I did some self portraits.  My only wish is that I would have brought my external flash, as that would have made it a bit better (something I learned this year!)

now to figure out next year...what do I want to do?

30 Dec

Got to play golf today, then took a walk.  Not sure of the plant type, the 'leaves' were paper thin.

No Moose ;-(

I heard that there are moose at one of the cross-country skiing areas.  So, I went.  Did I see any....nope, none, nada, niente...oh-well.  One thing I did learn, xc trails are not flat...this one was sort of like the bunny slopes, except you were expected to ski up them as well as down.  I'm going to hurt tomorrow.

27 Dec

can't quit close to the finish, but boy am I running out of ideas.

yes, my mirror is dusty...if you don't like it, hire me a maid (first someone needs to get house to a point a maid can enter without fear)
