Welcome to the first Friday of the new year! One of my goals for the year is to improve my photography and perhaps transition this space to more of a photo-centric site. To that end, I’ve decided to engage in a 365 photo project, and I intend to share the week’s photos here for Photo Friday. If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll be completing the FMS Photo-a-Day as well, and I’ll be sharing my out-takes, so to speak, there as well. I also share my daily morning pages photo there as well, which I suppose is sort of a 365 project. With this new project, I want to use my Big Girl Camera, though, so that will require some planning and forethought.
So far, I have two images for you – one each for the first two days of the year. I didn’t get to the photo on January 1 until late, which is why it is of what is available: the Christmas tree.
For today’s photo, I drove down the beach looking for something interesting to photograph and wound up at Jones Park in Gulfport. While I was there, Alex North whom I took a photography course from in February 2014, was prowling around, looking for something to shoot, but he didn’t get out of his truck. The sky was grey and the fog was thickening up, making for a poor atmosphere in which to take photos. I wandered around, though, looking, and I almost missed it on my way back to the Jeep, giving up and resolving to find something at home to capture.
There it was: an old crab trap with a barnacled float attached to it.
I hope your 2015 is off to a fantastic start. I’ve been enjoying my time off and spending it with my family. I’m looking forward, though, to getting back into my blogging and photography habits. Will you be joining me?
