A personal quest to take one picture every day, and write at least 100 words for an entire year.
What Am I Doing Here?
This is my attempt to take one picture every day for an entire year. So far, so good . . . .

This is the first HDR photo that I'm really proud to say I had taken. Before my second day of jury duty, I decided to take advantage of the parking garage vantage point and get a shot of the new courthouse. I thought I had taken the shot too late in the morning, but I had inadvertently lowered the exposure brackets on the shot. That, with the polarizer, really gave it some punch.
I was really, really tired! I was up for about 36 hours straight, and the delirium was set in. I still like this picture, though. I think at the time, everything was starting to look over-saturated and in 3D.
Reece wore himself out, and fell asleep in a sea of stuffed animals. This is the kind of situation where having a fast lens makes all the difference. That would have been one cranky kid if I had to use the flash . . . .
Tied my dawg by the railroad tracks,
choo choo train's gonna break his back;
Used to call him Spot, now he's called Splat;
And that's the kind of person we are . . .
Oh, baby, won't you come home with me . . . .
There was a vine that slowly climbed up a chair on our front porch and slowly began to take over. I'm not convinced that if someone were to sit in the chair, more vine wouldn't snake up and drag the unfortunate visitor to their doom . . . .
I had a small lot of Xmas lights that were never used, so I thought about keeping them near a reflective surface and seeing what kind of shots would come out. This one wasn't too bad in color, but I liked the mood it produced when I converted to black and white.
