Starting my second year of 365, See previous challenges below. I am a VERY amateur photographer in Southern California with two goals -- trying to chronicle the year with a picture a day and also improve my photographic skills. Comments/suggestions/criticism encouraged and welcome. I shoot with a Canon 60D either 18-135mm f/4-f/5.6 zoom or 50 mm f/1.8 prime or alternatively (more often than not) iPhone 7.
