Wow, challenges are time consuming, no wonder it is hard to get anything done. But fear not, I will not get bogged down with the blog. But this process has been .....a process.

At least one a day! Sounds easy, well Notsomuchso, not that I am bailing out or anything, but as I start the process, I realize all the gear I must lug around for taking photos.



Somehow it does not fit in a Coach handbag.

I started with 3 cameras, a lens and my film. Then I realized a needed a bag to carry all them around in. Add a notebook and pens to document the process for myself, that led to putting all the digital camera cords/chargers in the bag, an extra memory card and film. Next I added a monopod (1 legged tripod or a unipod, sounds very Sci-Fi to me). Pretty soon I am going to add the phone number to my chiropractor since I know that I will need to call them from carrying all this stuff around. And I am sure I will need some filters and some other items that will come to mind.




Oh yes, back to my goal, at least one a day! Just keep on track! I keep telling myself, in order to reach a challenge you have to stay in track. So here I am on track and publishing my 1st set of photos from my 1st week. 1 week down, 51 to go!

You will see from my photos, a varied life, a varied eye, lots of different views from all around my backyard and beyond. Not sure if I can even pick a favorite from the ones I have posted.




I did want to give a big thanks to my mother in law, Bev, she came and watched Matthew, while we escaped for an afternoon at the beach this past weekend. I also want the fires to stop, because this sky is not pretty at all. I hope that they end soon, all are people, homes and land are safe and we can have a nice blue sky summer!

If you want to check out all the photos I took during the week, I have a flickr account link at the bottom of the page. You can see all the photos I have taken during the week, many more than what got posted in my blog.

Enjoy the view!!!!!

Good Work - I wonder if all the equipment is required, because I'd be sad if it becames a barrier that could evolve into a reason to stop. What about impromptu and getting caught off guard, having a camera "handy". This project could turn into a lot of work if you're not careful..
