Day one/Year Two
As a "congratulations for finishing your 365 day blog project", my friend (who also happens to be my boss), Leah, gave me this beautiful New England plaque. I can't think of a more thoughtful or appropriate gift than this. It was humbling to receive it and it will always be displayed in a special place in my home forever and ever.
The words really got me thinking about what I photograph, and I decided to make a collage of some of my favorite photos, to go along with the wording. I hope you enjoy it:
It's been strange for me to not be shooting any photos the past few days. I have been leaving the Nikon at home, and it feels as though I am missing a very important body part. I'm not liking this feeling. It really hit me today.......for a year straight, I took both cameras out with me, wherever I went. Well, I was at the bank this afternoon, just up the street from my house, and there were 4 deer feeding in the woods. It was a beautiful peaceful sight, and I enjoyed the few minutes I just sat in my car and watched them. BUT, and this is a very big but.........I didn't have the big boy with me to shoot with, and I really could have gotten some great shots.......if only I had my camera with me!!!! I can't take another day of this little break, so I guess I am committing myself here at this very moment to another 365 days of shooting. Ready or not......here we go!!!!
