April update: I am 1/4 of the way through my project and am delighted with the community here at 365. When I joined I had no idea what I was getting into. I hoped to improve my photographic skills but little did I know that I'd also make so many new friends. This site should come with a warning: it is highly addictive. I suffer from 365 Withdrawal Syndrome when I cannot log on and see what my friends are doing. I love the challenges, the discussions, the humor and the helpfulness that is available here.

I'm relatively new to photography and am a newbie on this site. I upgraded from a simple point and shoot to a Nikon Coolpix P510 mainly for it's zoom capabilities. My main interests are: nature, candid portraits of family, macro and abstractions. I'm also learning to do some post processing via Photoshop. Living in the Puget Sound region provides me with many photo ops. I love mixed media art and am starting to use some of my photos with that.
