January 2017: It's 2017 and I'm back for another year!

January 2015: Whew! I've made it a whole 365 days! I have had too much fun here to leave, so I will continue... although my own rules will change and I will not (no, really, I won't!) feel compelled to take a photo every day. I want to continue to participate in themes and competitions and try new things including the exciting new "New Technique of the Month Club" and maybe eventually the get-pushed challenges. I may take a short break but I will be back very soon, I'm sure!

Thank you to all of you who inspire me daily with your incredible images - I am in awe of your talents and dedication and your willingness to take the time to explain how you do the wonderful things you do. And I am grateful for the time you spend to visit and comment on my photos. This is an amazing community.

Now that I'm half way through my first 365 Project, it's time to update my profile. I love this community: so supportive and inspiring! I often don't have much time to devote to taking a *good* photo, but I've been encouraged by others to try new things and learn new techniques. I have certainly learned how to adjust the settings on my camera more quickly and confidently! I'm not sure I've found a "style" yet (maybe I never will) but I have settled into a few favorite types of photography, macro and abstract being the most commonly posted here. Favorite subjects: trees and flowers (which is what's in my backyard, where I spend a lot of my time).

And after nine months, with my first Popular Page photo, I will include the link to Alexis Birkill's handy script so I can "keep track". :)

I've never tried taking a photo every day before. My hope is that this project helps me to look at my surroundings in a new way and better "see the shot". I think it might also give me an excuse to experiment and try new subjects and techniques!
