New Year, New Outlook

I'm changing my mindset a bit for 2018 and will be using my 365 album as a photo journal. I'm doing this in an effort to eliminate the number of blank days I've had this past year. If I don't have a special photo to post for the day, I'll post a photo of where I am and what is going on in my life on that particular day. I'm excited about my 2018 photo journal outlook! I think it will keep me posting, viewing, and commenting on 365 daily...which I enjoy tremendously.

2018 Photo Journal, Day 1
Happy New Year - and think that sounds like a great idea.

Good luck with your new goals Gayle! This is a fun (and beautiful) photo to go along with your thoughts.

That is a very good idea. I will keep that in mind.

Good idea. Always a challenge between photo "art" and photo "journal" -- good luck!

Your plan sounds like a good idea. I’ve enjoyed your photos all year and have loved keeping up with a fellow Texan too. I’ve appreciated your support and great comments on my first year efforts. I look forward to your photos this year! This is a cool photo!

What a great shot with awesome processing. I like your plan of using 365 as a journal. That is the way I started - and it is very rewarding.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

I like the idea of a photo journal. I've not been doing this project very long, but I am struggling to find something to photograph that is worth looking at every day and of sufficient quality. A photo journal would be a good way to take photographs more for yourself than for "the masses" ..

fantastic shot Gayle and a very good idea. I have been thinking along the same lines. I agree it will help to cut down on blank spaces.

@bintal I agree with you Sylvia. I think it would help me to stop being too critical of my photos

Good luck on your new challenge :)

That's a great idea.....I so like your photos & I do agree about being too critical & you should be able to fill each day this way..I don't like missing a day either...love the bokeh in this shot.

Glad to know that. I post shots each and every day most of them not taken on the same day as I hate to connect the camera to the computer for just one picture. Beautiful shot and some lovely bokeh there.

Good idea. Think you've just given me a good way to post more regularly.
