It’s getting harder and harder for me to keep up with this blog.

I’m taking photos every day, but the speed of my life has made it difficult for me to post them. I’m going to make more of an effort to keep up, but we’ll see what happens.

Four months into this project and I’m starting to rethink it.  My initial purpose for doing this was to have a photo log of my 50th year.  I’ve accomplished this so far, so that’s good.  But my underlying goal was to improve my photography by making myself work, forcing myself to pick up my camera every day.  That hasn’t been so successful.  I’ve found myself just taking ordinary photos to make sure that I get something up on the site.  I’m not pushing myself to take extraordinary photos.  That comes when I have a job to do, or when I have a stretch of time to really focus on my photography, which isn’t very often.

So today is an ordinary photo.  I’ll keep trying, though, and we’ll see how it goes as the year progresses.

And a happy Valentine’s day to you!

Tonight was incredibly windy…I mean major gusts of wind that were quite scary.

So naturally I got my camera and headed outside!  It was a cloudy night and the wind was furiously pushing the clouds around, so I thought it would be interesting to set my camera on a tripod and take some long exposure shots to see what the clouds looked like in slow motion.

Here is the result…

I’m trying to get things done today.

As usual, though, one thing or another gets in the way and now I look to see that the day is almost over and I’ve accomplished nothing of what I set out to do.

So I’ll appreciate the beautiful sky and sunshine and try not to be so hard on myself.
