New Year. New Challenge. New Post. (#1)
Welcome to 2012 everybody! As those of you who have followed me since last January 1 know, I started a 365 day photo project last year…and didn’t quite make it. This year will be THE year. So, as the new year begins, I will begin how I started it all last year…with a self-portrait. One suggestion I have seen is to take a portrait of yourself once a month. I will once again designate the first of the month to be the self-portrait post. It is good for me to be “in front” of the camera every once in a while to see how I have changed as the year has progressed. Some of my self portraits will be a bit more abstract, but today a view that many people are used to seeing of me…me behind the camera.
If you remember my first post from last year, one thing has changed in this picture…I have a new camera! I still love my Canon, but I thought I would branch into the Nikon world and have enjoyed learning the ins and outs of my Nikon. I am also changing a few things I do on my blog this year. Of course there will be photos every day (and I will make it this year!) but I’m also going to post book reviews from books that I have read…I’ve set a goal to read 60 books in 2012, so I hope to share with you my thoughts about the books I read (and if anyone has any suggestions on books I should read…let me know!) Secondly, I will continue to post recipes every once in awhile…recipes I have made for many years…and recipes I am going to test out this year to see if I like. Finally, I hope to show you a “pinspiration” post once a week…a post of something I was inspired to do by pintrest. Some days (like a post that will come either later tonight or tomorrow) will be a quick project that I did in an afternoon and some will be projects that I will work on for awhile and then share the posts with you.
Thanks for following my journey through another year…I hope you enjoy!
