Hi all! This is the start of a new year, a new blog and, I am sure, many other new beginning. I have never blogged before but I have so enjoyed reading other people's that I thought I might start my own. Hopefully this will bring me some enjoyment and keep others updated on our day to day goings on.
The thing that prompted me to start a blog now was this project I heard of online a few days ago. It's called Project 365. It involves taking a picture every day for a year. These pictures can be of anything you want...daily life, treasured objects, strangers on the street. It doesn't matter so long as you take a picture every day. The idea is to document your life in a way that you don't usually do, as well as improve your skills as a photographer. I'm hoping that posting my pictures on this blog will help me to keep at it. I also want to scrap the pictures each week and hopefully make a photo book out of them. I want to try to post the pics a couple times each week and thus remind myself to keep on.
Without further ado, I would like to present day 1's photograph:
I know, I know, it's a little cliche (or a lot) but really, January 1st is all about midnight and the start of a new year. Since I was starting a new project, I thought that cliche was OK. Besides, this clock was what we picked out with a wedding gift card so in the grand scheme of things, it does have some meaning. I kinda liked how this turned out, too.
Since this is my first post, I hope everything posts OK. I'll learn more as I go on. Have a great and blessed 2009!
