my camera and i

photograph by Mary Palaskonis

my camera and i are going to get to know each other better this year.
i'm participating in 2 projects, both involving taking a picture
a day. one is a self-portrait a day (which is proving to be difficult!!
but forcing me to get creative!) and one picture of whatever catches
my eye. already there is trouble as my nikon is very heavy. so my
solution is my smaller canon during the week. we'll see.
but there you have it. my new best friend. and this whole
experience is making me cheery. looking forward to the challenges.
(and i really hope i do it all 365 days) i think i will.

something about the new year that opens the world to so many
opportunities & when hope is more visible then other days.
