I am not, nor will I ever be, a photographer. I take pictures to give me a reason to write a little something each day. I have thousands of random thoughts that call my mind home which I could potentially put down on paper but it never happens. This is just a little peek inside my mind which sates my desire to write and this just makes it a little commitment as opposed to a bigger one. The photographs are a means to a way.

After 2 years - 730 consecutive days of posting photos on FaceBook - it has become a part of the daily routine – one which I look forward to completing each day. Most days it isn’t really a grind but occasionally a day comes along where it is more challenging than other days. I often don’t like those photos but I am happy that they only occur sporadically. My wife participated in 365Project in 2015 and I really enjoyed just following her photos and watching the positive comments and I look forward to being a part of this community along with her for the upcoming year.

Each of us is an artist in our own unique and individual ways. I have certainly enjoyed looking at photos here for the past year as my spousal JoAnne has participated in the 365Project for the past year. Your photos have provided me the inspiration to try new photographic techniques and I look forward to following many of you in the upcoming year. Thanks in advance for anyone who chooses to watch as well as for reading – I sincerely appreciate it!

Without any further ado, secure your seat belts and enjoy the ride!

“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.”

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
~ Elliott Erwitt
