I'm at it again (July 2019) and have no illusions that I can take photos everyday - so my goal is to post a photo a day. I have plenty to process and I so miss being here. I'm not able to comment like I used to but have been scrolling through the feed daily.

I completed my project on July 13, 2015 where my goal was to capture the beauty in my version of everyday life and I ended up learning so much more.

I officially started a free lance photography business (to help fund my photography habit), and am constantly driving my kiddos around to basketball (or other) practices, in addition to my full time job counting beans.

I absolutely love the 365project.org community and am so happy to be a part of it. I've made great personal connections and I love seeing everyone's work. The challenges are fun, motivating, and engaging. The people on the site are very helpful and kind.

I was fortunate enough to have a mentor who has kindly provided support and guidance. @vignouse (Richard) is someone you should check out and follow also @joansmor (Joan) 's encouragement on portraits led me to develop that genre and eventually pursue my business.

I took the 2017 52 Week Photo Challenge through Ricky Tims Photography: https://www.photoclassforyou.com and highly recommend it or his photography workshop in La Veta, CO, USA.

I am a big fan of the photoshop artistry courses, although I have yet to complete a course, I have learned much and completed several pieces that I have published. https://prophotoshopartistry.com/specialoffer
